Webinar Overview

Stainless steel forms part of the whole water cycle. From sourcing, water goes through treatment and distribution, then gets used and discharged for either recycling or a return to the environment. At each stage, stainless steel plays a critical role in ensuring water purity. Its corrosion resistance and durability particularly in harsh environments deliver an economical solution for extended life and service.
This webinar will highlight the natural and chemical environments encountered plus the important considerations and pitfalls to avoid with design, fabrication, and use.
  • Water sources and how to process them.
  • Natural and added chemical issues in the water handling industries.
  • The three cool and one warm mechanisms of attack for misapplied or misused stainless steel - and how to avoid them.
  • Going through the sourcing, use, and wastewater treatment.
  • Which stainless steel will be suitable and in what condition?
  • Processing of stainless steels to maintain its durability.
  • Why you might consider using a duplex or a ferritic grade over the traditional 300 series.
  • When 'maintenance' can cause problems.
