Alloy C276 Nickel Alloy Plate: Pulp and Paper-Bleaching Vessels and Digesters

The pulp and paper industry uses wood as a raw material to produce pulp, paper, board, and other cellulose-based products using bleaching vessels and digesters. Bleaching vessels are where wood pulp is bleached, making it appear whiter. Digesters are where wood chips are heated to high temperatures with sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfide to change them into pulp by dissolving the wood's lignin binder. Black and white liquors contained in this cooking process are corrosive materials that can attack the internal walls of the digester. Both the bleaching and digesting processes include chlorine and chlorine-based materials as well as sulfur, hydrogen sulfide, and sulfur dioxide. Nickel alloy C276 (c-276) pipe, plate, and sheet material have excellent corrosion resistance in a wide range of chloride-bearing environments, both acidic and alkaline, which makes them excellent choices for bleaching vessel and digester materials.

C276 Nickel Alloy Properties

C276 (c-276) plate and sheet material is an austenitic nickel-molybdenum-chromium alloy with an addition of Tungsten. Because of its superior corrosion resistance, nickel alloy C276 (c-276) is suitable for environments that face extreme temperatures and high chloride content. This alloy has been shown to withstand higher chloride levels than almost all other stainless and nickel alloy grades. It is highly resistant to chloride stress corrosion, cracking, pitting, crevice corrosion, and general corrosion. Alloy C276 (c-276) also has the ability to operate in oxidizing atmospheres up to 1900°F. It can also resist corrosion in reducing environment. C276 (c-276) plate, pipe and sheet material can be easily welded, hot and cold formed, and hardened by cold working. It also resists pitting. Nickel alloy C276 (c-276) is an outstanding choice for bleaching vessel and digester construction because of its ability to resist corrosion at high temperatures.
