Inspecting for Cracks in Austenitic Stainless Steel Welds

Stainless steel and InconelĀ® welds are often encountered in the extreme conditions common in the power generation industry because of their good resistance to heat, corrosion, and cracking. However, these welds pose unique inspection challenges. The Challenge 304 and 316 austenitic stainless steels and Inconel (referred to, here, as austenitic alloys) are corrosion and oxidation … Continue reading Inspecting for Cracks in Austenitic Stainless Steel Welds
