I agree uncommonsense. 904L was developed specifically for Sulfuric Acid resistance. It has a much higher Nickel content and has 2% Copper. This makes all the difference at high temperatures. 2205 is usually chosen only to reduce cost.

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low price is gone.

While th use of 2205 stainless may have saved money on this project, obviously the use of a heavier gauge 904L stainless would have held up much longer under the temperatures encountered and would have avoided this expensive repair

Engineering 101 boys!
