Alloy Steel UNS K11597 Flanges are composed primarily of steels containing chromium and nickel, along with various other elements, for added strength. This type of steel alloy contains between 0.45 and 0.75% carbon, 12 to 22% chromium, 8 to 14% nickel, up to 0.5% manganese, and trace amounts of aluminum, sulfur, phosphorus, silicon, molybdenum, vanadium, and titanium. Due to its added strength and corrosion resistance compared to other types of steel alloys, Alloy Steel UNS K11597 Flanges are often used in pipelines involving corrosive materials as well as pressure vessels that operate in highly corrosive environments.
UNS K11597 Alloy Steel Flanges are immensely versatile and well-suited for a variety of applications due to their impressive physical and mechanical properties. They are resistant to corrosion, oxidation, and extreme temperatures, making them ideal for manufacturing pipes and flanges in high-pressure and extremely hot or cold conditions. Additionally, these flanges have excellent strength-to-weight ratios as well as excellent fatigue properties, meaning they can withstand heavy pressures while still retaining their shape. This makes them perfect materials for anything requiring strength without the added weight reward since they can accommodate high loads while retaining their low mass. Furthermore, Alloy Steel UNS K11597 Flanges are incredibly malleable, which makes them easy to work with in the construction of larger products like piping systems or valves.
