Heat resistant carbon steel – 1.5415 / 16Mo3 for aluminium industries

Carbon steel can also be used for high temperatures, for example, S235JR for temperatures of up to 300°C. Heat resistant steels were developed for use in high temperatures, including 16Mo3 which, on account of its chemical composition, can be used for temperatures of up to 450°C. In contrast to stainless steel, it is more susceptible to corrosion; however, the purchase price is considerably lower. In the project pictured here, the section used for lifting the pipe is undergoing a complete dye penetrant inspection.
