Metals for Sulfide Stress Cracking and Stress Corrosion

This article appears in the May/June 2002 issue of Inspectioneering Journal

Proposed Revision to NACE Standard MR0175-2001-

Rewriting of this standard has been in progress since 1997. Draft # 4 is now out for ballot. In addition to 1997 ballots were distributed in 1999 and another reballot in 2000. NACE task group 081 has addressed negative votes and worked hard to improve the organization of the standard. The technical coordination committee officers have asked for a reballot due to the magnitude of the changes.

This document covers topics such as, but not limited to:

  • Materials selection (including carbon and low alloy steels, cast irons and corrosion resistant alloys)
  • Hardness requirements
  • How to use the standard
  • Fabrication
  • Bolting
  • Platings and Coatings
  • Special components (includes bearings, springs, instrumentation and control devices, diaphragms, pressure measuring devices and pressure seals, seal rings and gaskets, snap rings and more)
  • Valves, chokes and level controllers
  • Casing, tubing and downhole equipment
  • Wells, flow lines, gathering lines, facilities and field processing plants
  • Drilling and well servicing equipment

And more...
