  • Introduction and Application of Major Molybdenum (Mo) Containing Stainless Steel
    Jan 09, 2019

    Type 316 (2%-3% Mo) is the most widely used molybdenum-containing stainless steel. It is designated as a material for cans, pipes and heat exchangers for food processing and processing and pharmaceutical production. Increasing molybdenum content can enhance resistance to chloride in the air, so 316 can be used as a choice material for buildings at sea and around the coast.

    Duplex stainless steel (3%-4% Mo) has high strength and excellent resistance to chloride stress corrosion cracking. Multipurpose stainless steel, originally used as conveyor pipes in the petroleum and natural gas industries, is now more widely used in chemical processing and petrochemical industries and as a cooker in the pulp and paper industry.

    The most corrosion resistant stainless steel contains 6%-7.3% Mo. These alloyed steels are used as condensers in power plants, submarine pipelines and key components of nuclear power plants, such as industrial water pipelines.
