Insights to SMO 254
SMO 254 is an austenitic stainless steel alloy that has broad applicability in several sectors. Mainly, it is designed to match the requirement of seawater and other chloride-containing solutions. SMO 254 is a material that holds several features and characteristics and hence gained massive popularity in the market. The material consists of carbon, silicon, phosphorous, silicon, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, nitrogen and copper.
Properties of SMO 254
SMO 254 is austenitic stainless steel shows good resistance against crevice and pitting corrosion. Additionally, they can resist general corrosion and stress corrosion and cracking events. The high material strength of SMO 254 makes them better compared to other conventional austenitic stainless steels. Additionally, the material grade offers good welding capacity.
Applicability of SMO 254 grade
SMO 254 is suitable for various applications that include seawater colling water pipes, ballast water systems, firefighting systems, etc. Hydraulic instrumentation and tubing require SMO 254 products. SMO 254 material works well in bleaching plants and gas cleaning systems. Tanks and piping systems are carrying chemical uses SMO 254.
Get to know about Tube Fitting
SMO 254 Tube fittings offer leakage-free connections and suitable for power and instrumentation applications. Besides, these are the products available in high-quality standards and varied sizes and configurations. These tube fittings are useful in various instrumentations, process control units, and chemical plants. Also, SMO 254 tube fittings work well in power generation plants, pulp industry and petroleum plants. Additionally, SMO 254 Tube fittings are useful in special applications requiring high pressure carrying capacity.
Features of SMO 254 Tube fittings
These are the products that work well in halide solutions and the presence of chloride and bromide ions. The SMO 254 grade shows the effect of local corrosion due to pitting, crevice, and stress. SMO 254 is a material with a low carbon element. Such low carbon holds less risk of carbide precipitation during heat application during welding activity.
Installation of SMO 254 Tube fittings
These SMO 254 tube fittings are easy to install and do not require additional torque. During initial installation, the gas inspection gauge ensures sufficient pull-up.
