Super duplex VM 25S 125 is a Corrosion Resistant Alloy. It is called "Super Duplex" because of its improved corrosion resistance to H2S. It is iron based plus main alloying elements Cr, Ni and Mo. The PRE is above 40. Structure is Duplex (austenite and ferrite). VM 25S 125 is delivered in cold work condition. It can be hardened by drawing or pilgering.
VM 25S 125 use is recommended pCO2 is above 2psi / 0.14bar and high temperature up to 482°F / 250°C. Chlorine is limited to 120000ppm. It can be used with some amount of H2S (3psi – 0.2bar). Partial pressure H2S acceptable is governed by temperature.
VM 25S 125 can be used as tubing or casing.
VM25S 125 has been tested from room to high temperature for SCC and SSC with different levels of H2S.
