Optimal Composition Window of Type 410 Welding Consumables and Base Metals for Hydro-processing



  • Type 410 martensitic stainless steel is currently used for its sulfide corrosion resistance in downstream hydro-processing installations
  • Martensitic stainless steel was chosen over austenitic stainless steels due to its superior resistance to halide and polyphonic acid stress corrosion cracking found in hydro-processing environments
  • Type 410 stainless steel is currently used in applications such as heat exchangers, furnaces, and transfer piping in the form of tubes, pipes, plate, forgings, and castings
