October 2016 - ASMD/HPAD/AHAD - Al 2099, Duplex Stainless Steels 2507 and Zeron 100, Custom 465, Al 29-4C
ASMD and AHAD
- Al 2099 is a 3rd generation aluminum-lithium alloy developed by Alcoa for aerospace applications. It offers the desirable combination of low density, high strength, high modulus, moderate fracture toughness, excellent corrosion resistance and improved end-user fabrication. This heat treatable wrought aluminum alloy’s foremost benefit is its lower density, increased modulus with improved mechanical properties compared to currently used alloys.
HPAD and AHAD
Duplex Stainless Steels 2507 and Zeron 100 possess a two-phase microstructure of austenite and ferrite which combines the beneficial properties of ferritic and austenitic stainless steels. Both are considered superduplex stainless steels with applications in off-shore oil platforms. Zeron 100’s main application is for pumps and piping, particularly in sour wells. Superduplex 2507 is used for seawater handling and deep sea umbilicals because of its high resistance to pitting, crevice and stress crack corrosion. The very high mechanical strength of the alloys provides the opportunity for weight reduction over austenitic stainless steels and nickel base alloys.
Custom 465 is a precipitation hardening stainless steel—iron-nickel-chromium alloy containing titanium, and molybdenum. It has both high strength and high corrosion resistance. Typical applications of this alloy in the oil and gas industries include housings, mud motors, and directional drilling tools where the high strength and corrosion resistance in the uncoated condition are key advantages.
AL 29-4C is a ferritic stainless steel which provides localized corrosion resistance in condenser tubing used in seawater cooled power steam condensers. The corrosion resistance of this iron-base alloy is derived from the use of 29% chromium and 4% molybdenum as principle alloying elements. It is a prime replacement for copper containing alloys where pitting is a major concern as well as for titanium which is more expensive with limited availability.
