CryElso™ 203

  • The ultra low Nil-ductility temperature (Drop weight tests) assure an excellent resistance to the crack propagation, which destinate plates for safe use for Compressor housing or Nuclear waste containers
  • CryElso™ 203 plates are good candidates for coal gaseification or ethane storage due to the high guaranty level of Charpy impact values at low temperature (-101°C), combined with good tensile properties
  • Low C and Ceq assure the good weldability of plates

CryElso™ 5

  • CryElso™ 5 is typically designed to guarantee toughness properties at -120°C.
  • Steel plates delivered for liquefied ethylene and transportation vessels (carriers and storage)

CryElso™ 7

  • CryElso™ 7 is designed as an alternate or complementary solution to CryElso™ 9Q traditional 9%Ni steel.
  • Same properties and use as CryElso™ 9Q, but with reduced Ni level
  • Plates can be delivered ready to be used for projects: cold formed, chanfered, welded, etc

CryElso™ 9Q

  • Plate qualification as per LRS, BV and DNV GL and with proved properties as per BS PD7777
  • Plates can be delivered ready to be used for projects: cold formed, chanfered, welded, etc
  • Long experience and references in cryogenic storage and transportation of LNG, ethylene and ethane: thousands tons was delivered for projects around the world
