Failures of Metals in Sulphur & Sulphur Bearing Media

Krishnan, R M and Nijhawan, B R (1953) Failures of Metals in Sulphur & Sulphur Bearing Media. In: Symposium on Industrial Failure of Engineering Metals & Alloys, Feb. 5-7, 1953, NML, Jamshedpur.



Failure of metal components which occur in media conta-ining sulphur and sulphur-bearing compounds are attributed to the corrosive action of sulphurous gases acting on porous metal surface sale and actuating intergranular failure. Other important influences are of moisture, aera-tion, temperature and mechanical stresses. These factors have been discussed in outline, illustrated with examples of actual service failures. The paper is concluded with remedial measures such as metallizing with chromium, aluminium etc., besides considering substitute metals for use in sulphur atmospheres.
