Super Duplex 2507 flanges are made of a stainless steel alloy containing 25% chromium, 4% molybdenum, and 7% nickel. Duplex 2507 is known for its high strength and excellent localized corrosion resistance to chloride. This alloy is widely used for its yield strength which is twice that of annealed austenitic stainless steels, like 304 and 316 stainless.
Super Duplex 2507 Strength
Offering high impact and mechanical strength, Super Duplex 2507 flanges can be used at temperatures up to 570°F before you will see a reduction in strength.
Super Duplex Corrosion Resistance
Chloride corrosion resistance is one of the key attributes of Super Duplex 2507 flanges due to its specialty metal makeup. The high molybdenum, chromium and nitrogen content of Super Duplex provides these flanges excellent resistance to chloride corrosion such as pitting and crevice attack, while its ferritic structure makes it very resistant to stress corrosion cracking in warm chloride environments. Super Duplex 2507 flanges also provide uniform corrosion protection from organic acids such as formic and acetic acid, plus inorganic acids, especially those containing chlorides. In addition, 2507 flanges are highly resistant to carbide-related intergranular corrosion due to their low carbon content (0.020% in weight).

Super Duplex 2507 Uses
- Process and service water systems, ballast water systems, and desalinization plants utilize 2507’s resistance to chloride.
- Mechanical assemblies and infrastructure relies on Super Duplex 2507 flanges for their ability to withstand a high mechanical load in seawater.
- Super Duplex 2507 flanges are also used in offshore platforms, as well as oil & gas exploration and production to protect from seawater.
- Power industry flue-gas desulfurization systems and geothermal exploration units also rely on 2507 flanges.
Duplex 2205, UNS S32205, is a stainless steel material, whose “Duplex” name is derived from the mixed microstructure which contains roughly equal portions of ferrite and austenite. This grade is the most popular variety and this two-phase material is a significant upgrade from 316 stainless steel in terms of both yield strength and corrosion resistance.
