using to check the suitability of 316L


alloyselect can help you determine if the austenitic stainless steel 316L (UNS S31603) is suitable for sour service in your specific production conditions.

The environmental limits for austenitic stainless steel 316L (UNS S31603) were updated in NACE MR0175 through a Technical Circular 2013 and later on fully implemented in the 2015 revision.

Technical circular #2 of NACE MR0175 / ISO 15156 – 2009 was issued on the 27th of August, 2013. This NACE MR0175 / ISO 15156 circular addresses, among other changes, the updated limits for 316L (UNS S31603).

This video shows how alloyselect can be used to check the limits of S31603.


with alloyselect you can use data from reservoir and operation to check if carbon steel is suitable for your asset. alloyselect uses an Artificial Intelligence algorithm to determine sour service severity, corrosion rates and allowance, pH and other threats to the integrity of your asset.


alloyselect uses AI algorithms to identify suitable materials from a library of more than 300 different carbon and low alloy steels, cast irons and corrosion resistant alloys. alloyselect library of codes and standards is continuously updated to comply with regulatory requirements.


alloyselect helps you verify a selected material complies with one or more industry standards. AI algorithms analyse chemical, mechanical and processing data from Material Certificates to verify compliance with code and standards such as NACE MR0175, API 5CT and API6A
