- Our high performance materials offer the corrosion resistance and high mechanical strength required for marine scrubbers, at an affordable lifetime price.
Stainless steel for marine scrubbers
The operating conditions inside a marine scrubber are extremely aggressive due to a combination of acids, elevated temperatures and the high chloride content in the wash water. To tackle these hostile conditions and to guarantee a long service life for the scrubber, it’s essential to choose the right high-performance stainless steels. Stainless steels also contribute to sustainability as the system lasts longer, with no need for regular replacement of components. Choosing the correct stainless steel grades helps you save both energy and resources.
Our key Ultra range grades for scrubbers:
• Ultra 254 SMO
• Ultra 654 SMO
The Ultra range includes highly-alloyed austenitic grades for extremely corrosive environments. The strength and elongation properties of the Ultra range are similar or better than conventional austenitic grades. Despite the greater strength of these steels, they form and weld nicely.

Our key Forta range grades for scrubbers:
• Forta SDX 2507
• Forta DX 2205
Duplex (austenitic-ferritic) stainless steel combines many of the best properties of austenitic and ferritic stainless steels: high strength, good corrosion resistance and enhanced resistance to stress-corrosion cracking. The Forta range includes the strongest stainless steels in our portfolio.
