Rostfritt stål till stora vattentankar utomhus: En jämförelse mellan austenitiska och rostfria stål
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The austenitic stainless steel 316L has been compared to duplex stainless steels to be able to highlight a choice of material for manufacturing of spare tanks used for cooling water at nuclear power stations on the Swedish west coast. In this report 316L and the duplex stainless steels 2205, 2304 and LDX 2404 have been compared according to corrosion resistance, strength, manufacturing aspects and prices. The steels arranged by increasing corrosion resistance: 316L < 2304 < LDX 2404 < 2205. The steels arranged by increasing strength (considering the thickness of the plates needed for construction): 316L < 2304 < LDX 2404 and 2205. The steels arranged by increasing price/tank: 2304 < LDX 2404 < 2205 < 316L. One of the duplex stainless steels is recommended rather than the austenitic stainless steel 316L. In terms of price 2304 is preferable to 2205 and LDX 2404. When it comes to corrosion resistance 2205 is superior to 2304 and can sometimes be considered as unnecessary good and therefore not relevant for this application.
