Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
Stainless steel type 316 is part of a family of stainless steel alloys (304, 316, 904L). The 316 family is a group of austenitic stainless steels with superior corrosion resistance to Stainless Steel 304. This alloy is suitable for welding because it has a carbon content lower than 301 to 303 series alloys to avoid carbide precipitation in welding applications. The addition of molybdenum and a slightly higher nickel content make Stainless Steel 316 Pipe suitable for architectural applications in severe settings, from polluted marine environments to areas with sub-zero temperatures. Equipment in the chemical, food, paper, mining, pharmaceutical and petroleum industries often includes Stainless Steel 316.
Stainless Steel 316 pipe manufactured at Duplex Supply Inc. are long, hollow tubes that can be used for a number of purposes. They are an integral part of the piping systems. The first methods for producing steel pipe were introduced in the early 1800s, and they have steadily evolved into the modern processes we use today. Pipe systems around the world involve connections which are provided by fittings. Steel pipes are consumed in bulk and provide for onward transmission of liquids and gases. They can be connected to fittings by welding and the structure is supported by connection of flanges. Steel pipes available in two types: Seamless Steel Pipes and Welded Steel Pipes. For both types we first cast raw steel into a more workable starting form. We then make it into a pipe by stretching the steel out into a seamless tube or by forcing the edges together and sealing them with a weld.
