ferrite content measurement in super duplex stainless steel welds

  • Ferrite Testing – Baker Testing Services

    A correct ferrite measurement can help to avoid both solidification cracking and corrosion in stainless steel welds, pipes, plates, pressure vessels and petrochemical components. When ferrite content is too high, stainless steel can lose ductility, toughness, and corrosion resistance – .

    If the ferrite content is too low, then the welded material is susceptible to hot-cracking, if the ferrite content is too high, the toughness, ductility as well as the corrosion resistance of the steel are reduced. For duplex steel, a ferrite deficit in the area of the weld seam results in stress corrosion cracking and reduction in strength.
