Featured Story – Ways Toward Carbon Neutral Stainless Steel Production

The steel industry ranks amongst the top three CO2 (carbon dioxide) emitters from the industrial segment, and many steelmakers have set carbon neutral goals for the 2030-2050 timeframe. In general, stainless steel producers have a smaller carbon footprint than most carbon steel producers — on average about half — yet many have focused on investigating and implementing various available decarbonization approaches.

Featured Story – The Varying Personalities of Exotic and Alloy Steels

Did you know that every metal has its own unique personality, nuances, quirks, and mannerisms? Did you know that a welder should be a kind of ‘metal-psychiatrist’ to be able to do the welding job correctly? This is something that Travis Field of Legion Piping Fabricators, has become acutely aware of during his career.

Featured Story – The Effects Of Low Temperature Carbon Diffusion On Stainless Steel

Stainless steels along with Nickel based alloys are often selected for many applications in corrosive environments. While resistance to corrosion makes them a favorable choice, poor tribological behavior may prevent a broader use of these materials. The Kolsterising® process is a proven method for the surface hardening of these materials by the diffusion of carbon.

Featured Story – Standard Duplex Stainless Steel Welding Procedure Qualification

There are many precautions that need to be considered when welding duplex stainless steels. One of the biggest concerns is ensuring a proper ferrite to austenite phase balance. There are many precautions that need to be considered when welding duplex stainless steels. One of the biggest concerns is ensuring a proper ferrite to austenite phase balance. Several aspects will affect the phase balance of the weld metal and heat affected zone (HAZ) of a duplex stainless-steel weldment.

The Stainless Steel Market will Grow Under a Net Zero CO2 Program

The market for stainless steel in the power industry will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2% over the next 30 years. It is predicted that this already massive market will increase further as the innovation needed to reach the net zero CO2 initiative occurs. This in turn will require coal and nuclear plants to allocate more spending to stainless steel technologies.
