Various Uses of Stainless Steel Pipes

Since its invention more than a century ago, stainless steel has been one of the most common & versatile materials in the world, and it is now indispensable in a wide range of industries. Stainless steel has an iron alloy with at least 10.5 percent chromium content. By forming a thin oxide film on the steel sheet, chromium prevents corrosion. Greater corrosion resistance is provided by increasing the amount of chromium. Manganese, carbon, and silicon are also present in varying amounts in stainless steel. Specific components, such as Molybdenum and Nickel, are also extensively utilized to enhance malleability and corrosion resistance. Another reason stainless steel Pipe is used in so many different uses is that it can be made in a variety of sizes and designs.

Applications of Stainless Steel Pipes.

  • Stainless Steel 321/321H Pipes is used in food processing industries as this industry has a diverse pipe element available. As these Pipes are made of a combination of alloys that are chosen based on whether the Pipe supports industrial functions.
  • Stainless steel alloys Pipes used in Aircraft Hydraulic Lifts, have high nickel and chromium percentages.
  • Many Textile operations, Mills, and manufacturing lines use stainless steel parts in their machinery and products.
  • The use of stainless steel Pipe in the Fertilizers and pesticides, Automotive components industry is common as they are in high-quality mufflers.
  • Stainless steel Pipes can withstand the extreme pressures that are forced through them by gas and heat lines, Chemical applications, Water treatment plants, and Oil and gas processing.
  • Piping conjures up images of circles, but stainless steel Pipe is available in a variety of shapes and thicknesses, ranging from oval and round to rectangular and round, and is also accessible in standard sizes.
  • The material you choose is heavily influenced by how you intend to use the pipe and the environment in which it will be installed. Because it is corrosion-resistant and easy to sanitize, type 304 stainless steel is probably the most commonly used.

Stainless steel Pipes are adaptable material hence it is utilized in a variety of indoor and outdoor applications. Using stainless materials for your pipe project has various advantages, including being lightweight, durable, and long-lasting, as well as being able to handle high flow rates. Machine-friendly, scratch-resistant, sanitizer-friendly, low-maintenance, superior corrosion resistance, recyclable, environmentally friendly material.

Stainless Steel Pipes Offer Long-Lasting Durability and Corrosion Immune 

These SS Pipes are welded and fabricated to ASTM A-312 and ASME SA-312 standards and are available in steel grades 304/L and 316/L. The welded stainless pipe is typically available in widths ranging from 1/8″ nominal to 24″ nominal. Seamless stainless steel pipe that is made to ASTM A-312 standards and is available in 304/L and 316L steel grades. Seamless stainless pipes are normally available in nominal sizes ranging from 1/8″ to 8″.
