A nickel based, high silicon alloy exhibits very high corrosion resistance in high temperature sulfuric acid environments. The alloy may be cast and is sufficiently ductile to be fabricated and machined. The alloy is ductile and has sufficient resistance to mechanical and thermal shock to be reliable in service when used as rotating parts.
