The push toward higher efficiencies in power and process plants has resulted in a significant increase in the application of CSEF (Creep Strength Enhanced Ferretic) steels in high temperature services. These steels differ from “traditional” code material in as much as they gain their exceptional high temperature creep rupture properties based on a specific condition of microstructure, rather than the primary chemical composition of the materials. This means that the manufacturing and fabrication processes must be controlled carefully to ensure that the appropriate microstructure is achieved, failing which the material will suffer a significant reduction in creep strength properties.
This course brings attendees up to speed on the specific requirements for the CSEF steels; specifically, how adequate properties can be achieved and controlled.
