A combination of chrome white iron, ASTM A532, and steel in piping applications can be a good idea. It increases wear life and helps meet piping codes
A mine in British Columbia got 7 times the wear life by replacing their rubber-lined discharge nozzle with chrome white iron. Read this success story today.
What is the best chrome white iron, ASTM A532 alloy, for preventing corrosion? If you have a challenge because of abrasive wear, read this blog.
One key benefit of iron production is that a foundry can melt down and reuse metal. Not only does this offer sustainability benefits, but significant cost savings.
This ASTM A536 data sheet focuses on low temperature, impact resistant ductile iron. It includes microstructure, mechanical property and application notes.
Wye laterals are used in a wide range of industries including the oil sands, mining, chemical processing, and waste management to transport liquids and slurries. Due to their caustic and/or abrasive composition, these materials can create substantial wear on parts, necessitating frequent replacement. The costs of replacement in both materials and downtime can be high.
Conventional ductile iron contains a mix of pearlite and ferrite in the matrix surrounding the nodules. This mix, depending on different cooling rates throughout the casting, can cause large ranges in mechanical properties like hardness.
The 30% Cr alloy is designed for use in applications like flue-gas desulfurization (FGD). The higher Cr content makes this alloy especially useful when conditions of severe acid corrosion exist and when high Cl ion concentrations are present.
Because of its unique microstructure, chrome white iron offers superior abrasion resistance over other alloys, including steel. But ASTM A532 also confers specific recycling, reusing and repairing advantages over rubber and ceramic products, resulting in a lower environmental impact and significant cost savings.
