Tube, pipe, fittings and flanges
SAF 2507™ LHP for laying head pipe is a high alloy super-duplex stainless steel.
SAF™2507 LHP has a coefficient of thermal expansion close to that of carbon steel. This gives SAF™ 2507 LHP definite design advantages over austenitic stainless steels in equipment comprising both carbon steel and stainless steel. The values given below are average values in the temperature ranges.
|SAF™ 2507 LHP||13.5||14.0||14.0||14.5|
