Badger Sheet Metal Works’ Pressurized Area Keeps Impurities at Bay
Companies looking for a higher grade of corrosion-resistant stainless steel count on Badger Sheet Metal Works and its specialized production environment for 2205 stainless steel fabrication. The Green Bay, Wisconsin-based company is one of the few metal fabricators to invest in a pressurized stainless steel production area that keeps out carbon and other impurities.
High levels of chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen provide 2205 stainless steel fabrication products with corrosion resistance superior to the more common 304, 316 and 317 stainless steels. 2205 stainless steel’s strength creates opportunities for using lighter-gauge material that has the same efficiency as heavier varieties.
2205 Stainless Steel Fabrication Packs a Punch
“This high-quality stainless steel is an ideal choice for customers who want to maintain strength when weight is a factor,” said Kenny Coe, director of sales at Badger Sheet Metal Works. “Abrasion resistance is the primary benefit to 2205 stainless steel, especially compared to the chloride stress corrosion cracking issues associated with 316 and 317 stainless.”
Badger Sheet Metal Works, an expert provider of custom tank fabrication, uses 2205 stainless steel for various types of process piping, bag houses, pulp mill digesters, oil field piping, heat exchangers, food process equipment and food-grade scrubber systems. 2205 stainless steel is appropriate for operating temperatures below 600 degrees.
