Ferret Out Your Ferrite
Gardco (Pompano Beach, FL) has developed the Feritscope, which measures the ferrite content in austenitic and duplex steel. Welds that must survive the rigors of processing plants, where heat, aggressive media, and pressure are all present, can crack if the ferrite content is too low, and become weak if the content is too high. The Feritscope is suitable for measurements according to the Basler standard or DIN EN ISO 17655, and is ideal for seams in stainless steel pipes, containers, or boilers.
