Introduction to Explosion Cladding for Chemical Processing & Refining Applications

When:  Aug 27, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (ET)
Explosion cladding is a solid state welding process that uses precision explosions to bond two dissimilar metals while retaining the mechanical and corrosion properties of both. The process is most commonly used to clad steel with a thin layer of corrosion-resistant alloy metal, such as stainless steel, brass, nickel alloys, titanium, zirconium and tantalum. This presentation provides an overview of the explosion cladding process with a focus on applications in the chemical process industry, including columns, towers, reactors, heat exchangers, piping and tanks.
