What is the cause of stainless steel pipe cracking

What is the reason for the crack of the stainless steel pipe? There are relevant experts to detect the cracked steel pipe and analyze the water quality of the steel pipe.

Results: This crack is a stress corrosion crack; when used in a temperature environment of 60-120 ℃, the chloride ion content and total hardness of the water in the steel pipe seriously exceed the standard, which is the main reason for the stress corrosion cracking of the stainless steel pipe.

It should be caused by metal cracking caused by environmental corrosion.

Two conditions must exist for cracking to occur. The existence of stress and corrosive media.

Stress corrosion is one of the important failure modes of stainless steel, and the typical stress corrosion cracks are dendritic. The research on the stress corrosion behavior of stainless steel in different corrosive media environment is an important content of stainless steel corrosion research. This article combines actual examples to illustrate the process of stress corrosion cracking in stainless steel and the damage to the equipment, analyze its causes, and find out reasonable methods to avoid stress corrosion cracking.
