Solve Serious Corrosion Problems with Super Alloys from CSI

As a pharmaceutical manufacturer, you dedicate your time and resources towards maximizing your plants effectiveness in order to deliver your products faster to those battling illnesses. That last thing you need is downtime in your process line caused by serious corrosion. The problem is most pharma plants are running extremely corrosive product or chemicals — such as chlorides and phosphoric or acetic acids — through their lines. Without a powerful corrosion-resistant alloy in place you risk unplanned downtime, product loss, and even equipment failure.

We understand this problem and are here to help! The experts at Central States Industrial (CSI) take corrosion seriously, which is why we are a global source for corrosion-resistant super alloy piping and components for food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and personal care industries.

In order to best serve our pharmaceutical customers, we maintain stock of AL-6XN® alloy and Hastelloy® C-22® hygienic piping and components, all made in the US. In fact, CSI holds the largest inventory of corrosion-resistant components available in our four strategically located warehouses — enabling us to reach you on demand.

Learn more about our line of super alloys below and for an in-depth look, visit booth #1 from 11am-4pm at the 26th Annual ISPE-CaSA Life Sciences Technology Conference on March 12!

corrosion-resistant, cost-effective, and available in whatever form you need

AL-6XN® Alloy: Super Austenitic

Corrosion Resistance
The high strength and corrosion resistance of the AL-6XN alloy makes it a better choice than other super austenitic stainless steels and it outperforms conventional duplex stainless steels.

Cost Benefit
AL-6XN is a cost-effective alternative to more expensive nickel-based alloys in applications where excellent formability, weldability, strength, and corrosion resistance are essential.

It has a high return on investment compared to 300 series stainless steels. Considering factors such as downtime, product loss, and replacements, AL-6XN can provide long-term savings and is significantly less expensive than most of the titanium and nickel based alloys.

To better serve our customers, CSI holds the largest inventory of AL-6XN corrosion-resistant components available. We have four strategic locations in the US enabling us to ship around the globe on demand. The AL-6XN experts at CSI are ready to help you reduce your system downtime from corrosion, so contact us today.


Superior longevity in the most corrosive environments

Hastelloy® C-22®: Nickel Alloy

Corrosion Resistance
Hastelloy C-22 has excellent resistance in oxidizing and reducing environments. When traditional 316L has failed, and AL-6XN has reached its material design limit, then Hastelloy C-22 is the best option. Examples of these corrosive environments include:

  • Chlorides
  • Phosphoric acids
  • Acetic acids
  • Sulfuric acids in active pharmaceutical ingredients (API's)
  • Buffer solutions
  • Any other beauty or health product where contamination due to corrosion is an issue

Readily Fabricated
Due to its ductility, Hastelloy® C-22® exhibits superior welding conditions and can be fabricated for process applications in chemical-based industries such as food, beverage, personal care, and pharmaceutical.

To best serve you, CSI keeps a complete line of Nickel alloy Hastelloy® C-22® tubing and fittings in-stock. Contact the Hastelloy experts at CSI to learn more.
