MEGAFLO HE DD170 DIRECT CYLINDER
Duplex stainless steel offers a superior resistance to corrosion especially in aggressive water areas, compared with some grades of stainless steel, glass-lined steel and copper. Because Duplex is a low carbon, high chromium content alloy, it resists all forms of corrosion including pitting, crevice corrosion, uniform corrosion and stress corrosion cracking without the use of a sacrificial anode. In addition, the tungsten inert gas welding coupled with the special post-weld processes ensures the welded area has the same level of corrosion resistance and mechanical strength as the parent metal. This ensures the longest possible working life for every cylinder.
The combination of its lightweight yet very strong construction makes Megaflo eco easier to handle on-site. Every unit is pressure tested in the factory to 15 bar – five times the normal operating pressure – making Megaflo eco suitable for all domestic and commercial applications.
No sacrificial anode is required with Megaflo eco. With inferior grades of stainless steel, glass-lined steel and copper, sacrificial anodes are required to achieve a degree of corrosion resistance. However they require regular replacement which, if not carried out can result in premature cylinder failure. Megaflo eco overcomes any need for this by using top quality Duplex stainless steel.
