DESCRIPTION
Alloy 20 is one of the so-called "Super" stainless steels that was designed for maximum resistance to acid attack. It's nickel, chromium, molybdenum and copper content contribute to its overall resistance to chlorideon stress corrosion cracking and general pitting attack. The alloy is stabilized with columbium to minimize carbide precipitation during welding. It has good mechanical properties and can be fabricated with comparative ease. Athough the alloy was designed for use in sulfuric acid related industries, it finds wide usage throughout the chemical processing industry. It also is used for processing pharmaceuticals, food, gasoline, solvents, plastics, explosives, synthetic fibers and many other products.

DESIGN FEATURES
• Superior resistance to stress-corrosion
cracking in boiling 20 to 40% sulfuric acid.
• Excellent general corrosion resistance to
sulfuric acid.
• Excellent resistance to chloride stress
corrosion cracking.
• Excellent mechanical properties and
fabricability.
• Minimal carbide precipitation during welding.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Chemical and allied industries
Food and dye production
Heat exchangers
SO 2 scrubbers and other severe environments
Tanks
Pickling racks
Valves

TENSILE REQUIREMENTS
Tensile Strength (KSI) 80
Yield Strength (KSI) 35KSI can be converted to MPA (Megapascals) by multiplying by 6.895.
