Fasteners for Water Desalination Plants

Seawater desalination plants demands highly sustainable alloy fasteners with high resistant to seawater corrosion, galvanic corrosion, erosion, etc. Alloys like titanium are very relevant to this area. In recent years, with the development of technology, new alloys like duplex and super duplex are also used in waster desalination construction with combined strength of ferritic and austenitic stainless steel. Fasteners in this environment often fail due to hydrogen-induced stress cracking, which can be prevented by use of PTFE coatings over carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex or super duplex stainless steel. Stud Bolts, hex Bolts are common products.
