316 / 316L PIPE

Inquiries : 1 - 2016-2-2 17:12:36

CHARACTERISTICS

316 / 316L stainless steel pipe is used for  applications that require the high strength, toughness and workability, coupled  with increased corrosion resistance.  The alloy contains higher  percentages of molybdenum and nickel than 304 stainless  pipe, increasing the corrosion resistance and making it an ideal material  for applications in aggressive environments.

APPLICATIONS

316 / 316L seamless pipe is used  for pressure operations to move liquids or gases in water treatment, waste  treatment, petrochemical, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Structural  applications include handrails, poles and support pipe for salt water and  corrosive environments. It is not used as often as welded pipe due to its  reduced weldability compared to 304 stainless unless its superior corrosion  resistance outweighs it decreased weldability.
