Austenitic Stainless Steel Grade 316L, Duplex Stainless Steel (22% Cr DSS) and Super Duplex Stainless Steel (25% Cr SDSS) corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) are used extensively in water injection service for various applications such as process piping, pumps and valves. Currently the application of these materials is limited by many international standards to 10 Parts per Billion (ppb) of dissolved oxygen environments. However in actual plant operation of water systems, this limit could be exceeded due to various unavoidable upset scenarios also practically it is very difficult to control dissolved oxygen to less than 10 ppb. Higher grade materials (Nickle based alloys such as Alloy 825 or Alloy 625) are selected for oxygen corrosion resistance properties which result in increased cost, compared to stainless steel materials. The objective of this study was to do a systematic study to evaluate the performance of stainless steel (SDSS) in environments containing various dissolved concentrations (16, 100, 167 and 250 g/L NaCl). This paper will present the testing results and the effect of oxygen on CRA materials. The results show that SDSS material has better corrosion performance compares to other materials (316L, DSS) at various testing conditions.
