DeZURIK stainless steel valves in brackish water from the Eastern Seaboard underwent severe MIC. Alternative materials with higher chromium content were required to resist the corrosive nature of the microbes in the water. As a cost savings, only the wetted parts were constructed from the higher chromium content material to extend the service life from a few years to 20 years.
