Operating Temperatures 800°F
Consider ASC2250 LDX - Lean Duplex Stainless in applications where operating temperatures do not exceed 800°F. For applications where operating temp. are lower than 800°F, consider ASC2250 LDX to replace; 304L, 316L, 410, 416, and 17-4PH. You will appreciate the increased corrosion resistance, the higher strength and abrasion resistance. And, your machine shop and welders will appreciate the ease of machining, welding and general fabrication. ASC2250 LDX is a "User-Friendly" wear resistant stainless grade that literally provides unlimited applications possibilities.

Increased Wear Resistance
This unique product provides a much higher degree of wear resistance than typical austenitic stainless grades; such as 304L and 316L. ASC2250 LDX will extend service life in corrosive environments where tramp elements may be suspended in a corrosive medium. Dirt, sand, and metallic particles present in recycling operations make short work of lesser stainless grades. The high strength properties of ASC2250 LDX resist abrasion (small particle impact and sliding abrasion); cuts and scratches degrade the surface of other stainless and that contributes to
corrosion and wear.

Pulp & Paper, Chemical Plants, and Refineries
ASC2250 LDX is an excellent choice in sour service applications where Stress Corrosion Cracking contributes to failure. Most digesters being made now will have some lean duplex content in the tanks and structures. ASC2250 LDX provides excellent resistance in lower PH.

Plasma Cutting Services

All of our lean duplex stainless steel is cut utilizing a high definition, state of the art plasma cutter. We offer standard tolerances of (+/- 1/16") or better.

Our capabilities include the use of the latest version of AUTOCAD and Blue Print Services to ensure precision and accuracy. Please call our offices for details.

Improved service life where 316L Stainless has been successfully used previously.
