Excellent corrosion resistance over a wide concentration range
Superior equipment lifespan and minimal maintenance
Clean acid-free from corrosion products
Lightweight speeds up installation and reduces the need for foundation work
The Metso Outotec Edmeston SX stainless steel was introduced to the market by Edmeston in 1984. The introduction of the Outotec Edmeston SX equipment led to a paradigm change in the industry with equipment of reduced corrosion, prolonged lifetime, reduced maintenance, and increased plant safety. The Outotec Edmeston SX maintains the leading position as the number one, standard for comparison, top-performing alloy, for sulphuric acid service.
The following welding methods can be applied to SX:
SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding) or Covered Electrode welding;
