Alloy 20 Pipe

Alloy pipeCertain applications require piping systems that can withstand extreme conditions.

Some materials lend themselves to this better than others. And one of those materials is alloy 20 pipe.

Also known as Carpenter 20, alloy 20 is a ‘Super’ alloy developed to hold up to sulfuric acid. Its nickel, chromium, molybdenum and copper components allow it to resist chloride ion stress corrosion cracking and pitting attack. What’s more, it has good mechanical properties and can be fabricated easily.


As you would expect, alloy 20 pipes are often used in environments where sulfuric acid is present. However, their other beneficial characteristics, like easy fabricability, also make them useful in many other applications. Some of the most common applications include:

  • Chemical process piping
  • Reactor vessels
  • Synthetic rubber manufacturing equipment
  • Processing of pharmaceuticals, plastics and organic and heavy chemicals
  • Petrochemical process equipment
  • Food and dye production
  • Acid cleaning and pickling equipment
  • Bubble caps
