Q. Hi, I work in a chlor-alkali plant in indonesia. We are looking for a more suitable tube material for our chlorine vaporizer, a sort of shell and tube. Circulating in the outer side of tube is hot water 70 °C and tube side is liquid chlorine. The Cl2 pressure of the vessel is 8-9 bars. Presently the tube is carbon steel, and we are looking for a more dependable and inexpensive metal to replace the carbon steel. Appreciate your help. Thanks, Lopez

A. Copper is somewhat inexpensive and more resistant to corrosion than carbon steel.
