UNS S31400 stainless steel was tested as a reactor material for a thermal cracking process of agricultural, silvicultural, industrial and anthropogenic resources containing HCl. This material was chosen as it offers proper corrosion resistance in hot gases besides a good price and a high availability.
This book presents the findings and opinions of experts in material degradation testing in an effort to improve testing methods and procedures. Also shown is how the photochemical degradation rate depends on a combination of UV radiation, temperature, humidity, rain, stress, and concentration of reactive pollutants
This publication brings together a broad range of published papers specifically addressing cracking of steels and weldments resulting from absorbed hydrogen when exposed to wet H2S environments. It includes 72 classic papers from NACE and other sources covering published literature from 1948 to 1993. Other non-NACE sources include books published by the American Petroleum Institute, Materials Properties Council, and the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
