Stainless steel resistance table
The corrosion resistance information contained within this table is indicative only.
All data is based on reactions noted at an ambient temperature of 20°C. Higher temperatures will generally reduce the corrosion resistance of the materials.
|?||Suitable, contact ACO for further advice|
|–||No data available|
Typical factors that affect material selection:
- type(s) of chemical(s) and % composition in the liquid
- concentration percentages
- contact time with trough system
- temperatures of liquid flowing into the trough
- flushing system employed o clear liquids from the system
- type of cleaning agent (see Care & Maintenance)
- grate, locking mechnism and trash basket materials
- sealant for compatibility, if applicable
Test samples should be used for final determination of chemical resistance, contact ACO.
