Nickel Institute publishes guide to alloy selection

09 September 2020

The Nickel Institute has published the latest in a series of updated technical publications aimed at helping engineers and specifiers select corrosion resistant materials. Alloy selection for service in organic acids (10063) reviews the corrosive effect of organic acids, such as formic, acetic and fatty acids, at all concentrations. 

The corrosive action of organic acids is complicated because these acids are not handled in isolation but rather as process mixtures with inorganic acids, organic solvents and salts.  

This fully revised technical publication from the Nickel Institute provides a useful guide for materials engineers and is available for free download.

Alloy selection for service in organic acids is part of an extensive library of free-to-download technical guides intended to enable confident use of nickel-containing materials. Recent companion publications in the series include Alloy selection for service in caustic soda - a guide to nickel-containing alloys, Alloy selection for service in sulphuric acid and Alloy selection for service in hydrogen fluoride, hydrofluoric acid and fluorine. 

The Nickel Institute also offers a free online technical inquiry service. Their team of highly experienced experts is on hand to answer technical questions from existing and potential users of nickel-containing materials for architecture, building & construction, welding, process engineering, structural engineering and other related topics.
