A pulp processing mill is experiencing stress corrosion cracking problems in the steam nozzles of an older digester made of reinforced stainless steel. The process uses sulfuric acid to break down the wood fibers. The plant wants to identify more resistant replacement materials for the steam nozzles. See how the user identifies new materials of interest, and their relative, conditional corrosion rates with Knovel Corrosion.

Discover how they explore remediation recommendations by quickly finding relevant case studies.
