Stainless steel parts are standard on all Applied Thermal
Control machinery due to the corrosion-resistant properties, durability, and
ability to withstand high temperatures and pressures held by stainless steel.
Some key benefits of using stainless steel include:
steel is resistant to corrosion and rust, which is important for process
cooling equipment, since these systems often use water or other fluids that can
be corrosive over time. Deionised water compatibility is particularly noteworthy
in this context, as stainless steel maintains its corrosion resistance even
when in contact with deionised water, which can be aggressive towards certain
steel is a durable material that can withstand high temperatures, pressures,
and other harsh conditions, which makes it ideal for use in process cooling
equipment that is subjected to heavy use.
steel is compatible with a wide range of fluids, including water, glycol, and
other coolants, making it a versatile material for process cooling equipment.
Furthermore, the utilisation of stainless steel components
can also help to mitigate the risk of galvanic corrosion, an electrochemical
process that occurs when dissimilar metals are in contact with each other in
the presence of an electrolyte (such as water or other fluids). The
compatibility of stainless steel with various fluids helps to minimise the
likelihood of galvanic corrosion, ensuring longevity and reliable performance
of the equipment.
