Sulphuric Acid Plant Equipment


CIRAMET austenitic stainless steels are a family
special steels whose use has been developed by
Chemetics for the critical components of the
Chemetics
Anodically
Protected
Seawater
Sulphuric Acid Coolers.
Developed
from
the
extensive
operating
experience gained from Chemetics seawater acid
coolers in service since 1971 and exhaustive inhouse testing and ongoing pilot plant projects, the
specifications for CIRAMET alloys have produced
a family of materials custom designed for the
critical seawater cooling applications.
Manufactured by the latest steel making
processes, the chemistry of the alloys has been
tailored to Chemetics exacting specifications to
optimize pitting & crevice corrosion performance
characteristics required for this most severe
service while retaining the required corrosion
performance in hot sulphuric acid.

CIRAMET tubing is manufactured from strip which


is converted on a state of the art automatic welding
line where frequent stringent quality control checks
and regular production sampling, performed at
every stage of the process, ensure a finished
product of the highest possible quality. The weld in
the tubing is mechanically worked prior to carefully
controlled annealing and finishing operations. This
series of exacting procedures, all carried out under
the strictest quality control standards, assures the
virtual elimination of defects while producing a bore
finish of superior quality.
All tubes are 100% eddy current tested and under
water air tested before visual and strict corrosion
tests are performed. Only then are the tubes
qualified for use in Chemetics Seawater Acid
Coolers.

The most critical component of a seawater acid


cooler is the tubing which is required to operate at
elevated metal temperatures. For this severe
service Chemetics has developed proprietary
tubing specifications which far exceed those of
regular commercially produced tubing.
