Stainless steel resistance table

The corrosion resistance information contained within this table is indicative only.

All data is based on reactions noted at an ambient temperature of 20°C. Higher temperatures will generally reduce the corrosion resistance of the materials.

Oops, an error occurred! Code: 20190215025923216a0543Recommended
Oops, an error occurred! Code: 20190215025923b1f5b0afSuitable, contact ACO for further advice
Oops, an error occurred! Code: 201902150259232e0ed0baNot recommended
Oops, an error occurred! Code: 201902150259231645cb74No data available

Typical factors that affect material selection:

  • type(s) of chemical(s) and % composition in the liquid
  • concentration percentages
  • contact time with trough system
  • temperatures of liquid flowing into the trough
  • flushing system employed o clear liquids from the system
  • type of cleaning agent (see Care & Maintenance)
  • grate, locking mechnism and trash basket materials
  • sealant for compatibility, if applicable

Test samples should be used for final determination of chemical resistance, contact ACO.
