Proposal titleCLADDING OF HASTELLOY FOR INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING FLANGES (CHIEF)

AbstractThe laser cladding of stainless steel with Hastelloy in order that critical exposed areas

achieve the samecorrosion performance as solid Hastelloy would dramatically reduce the

consumption of the alloy in theproduction of flanges for chemical vessels and pipework

systems with important consequences for theusage level of the strategic elements required.

At the sametime a cost reduction of up to 200% perflange would be produced by

minimisation of Hastelloy usage and this would lead to increasedcompetitiveness for the

manufacture of such components.Research is proposed into the process optimisation of

laser cladding of Hastelloy in powder form ontostainless steel flanges and weld necks. The

main deliverable to be produced from this project is atested demonstration system for laser

cladding in this system. This technology can be exploited forthe production of flanges

with a wide range of sizes for use in manufacture of chemical processingplant.
