Summary

It should be clear from the discussion of materials for saline waters and hydrocarbon applications that the selection of materials for a pump is a complicated exercise, requiring knowledge of the engineering properties of the material, its fabrication characteristics, and corrosion and erosion resistances. An in-depth discussion of the considerations governing material selections for other pump applications, such as the chemical industry, mining industry, and others, is beyond the scope of this section, but a number of references are included to provide additional guidance. Past experience is often helpful, but it is recommended that the materials selections be reviewed by a metallurgist or corrosion engineer with experience in this area, especially for critical applications or those applications with which you are not familiar.
