Working with Stainless Steels

The importance of good design and surface finish selection for the successful fabrication of stainless steel is outlined along with some of the properties that can affect the fabrication and performance of stainless steels. These include thermal conductivity, thermal expansion coefficient and the risks of galling (pick-up).The hazard of iron contamination from carbon steel pick-up is mentioned and that welding oxide or heat treatment scale should be removed prior to service.
