Hitachi Metals MMC Superalloy's materials used in the Chemical industry process. The chemical industry is generally defined as "an industry that manufactures products from various materials for various purposes by using chemical technology". Chemical products are classified broadly as inorganic chemical products, gas products, organic chemical products, and petrochemical products, etc.
In the chemical industry process, amorphous solids (powder and grain) and fluids (liquids and gases) are put into devices (containers) under certain conditions (temperature, pressure and catalysts), which perform chemical alterations (chemical technology).
As the markets needs grow more sophisticated, the demand of development for new products is rising. On the other hand, it is now a prime task for manufacturers to improve productivity and to reduce investment and maintenance costs.
Consequently, demands for corrosion-resistant alloys are growing due to the following needs: improvement in product reliability; consistency in equipments for new processes; improvement in the simplification of repair and maintenance; reduction of equipment maintenance frequency span; reduction of total investment costs by taking into consideration of running and maintenance costs, etc...
Based on 40 and more years of accumulated experience in melting technology, processing technology, quality control system, and corrosion-resistance data for various environments, Hitachi Metals MMC Superalloy provides various types of corrosion-resistant alloy products as well as advice on deciding materials, and offers a wide variety of services.
The following list, for reference, is a comprehensive introduction of the various types of alloys. Please note that each data is an average value based on experimental data, and is not a guaranteed value.
