Fabrication and Post-Fabrication Cleanup of Stainless Steels (10004)
By Arthur H. Tuthill, reprinted from Chemical Engineering, Sep 29, 1986. The surface condition of stainless steels is critical where the product must not be contaminated; pharmaceutical, food and nuclear plants and where the stainless must resist an aggressive environment. Embedded iron, grease and heat tint can initiate corrosion unless properly removed or, in some cases, prevented. Provides a guide to solving the problem.
