Selection Stainless Steel for Handling Sulphuric Acid H2SO4 By yaang.com

Selection Stainless Steel for Handling Sulphuric Acid H2SO4 By yaang.com

Sulphuric acid is oxidising when concentrated but is reducing at low and ‘intermediate’ concentrations.  The response of most stainless steel types is that in general they are resistant at either low or high concentrations, but are attacked at intermediate concentrations. Commercially ...
