Stainless Steel Pipes

Stainless Steel Pipes

Information

Stainless steel pipes are used in transferring of liquids in high temperature appli­cations. The properties of stainless steel pipes are resistance to corrosion, high ductility, formability and low maintenance. Stainless steel pipes are typically classified or distinguished based on their end use function, environmental conditions, types and grades.

Applications

Uses of stainless steel pipe include chemical plants, aviation, marine equipment, food and beverage, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, mining and architectural industries.

Grades

One of the most preferred stainless steel grades for tubing and piping applications is Grade 304 stainless steel. Grade 304 stainless steel has high chemical and corrosion resistance, but is not compatible with applications where temperatures fall in the range of 800 – 1640 degrees Fahrenheit (F) because of its proneness to carbide precipitation. Conversely, Grade 304L stainless steel pipe does not have this issue because of its lower carbon content limit, thus making it suitable for welding and higher temperature applications. Other types of stainless steel often possess additives, such as nickel or molybdenum, which strengthen properties that are desirable in particular applications.

Common Grades, Sizes and Specifi­cations

GradesWidthLengthThickness
304/304LUp to 24”Up to 6000mmSCH 10S to SCH 80S
316/316LUp to 24”Up to 6000mmSCH 10S to SCH 80S

Other stainless steel pipe sizes and grades are available upon request. You can request to cut your stainless steel pipe down to size.

Classifications

TypesDescription
Stainless Steel Pipe for General Corrosion ResistanceMade with chromium and manufactured to be annealed or heat treated. Ideal for applications that require corrosion resistance.
Stainless Steel Pressure PipeMade from either solid chromium or a chromium and nickel combination. Different types of stainless steel pipes include electric fusion welded pipe used for high pressure applications, seamless and welded pipe, welded pipe with large diameter for high temperature applications and ferritic stainless steel pipe.
Stainless Steel Sanitary TubingHigh corrosion resistance, does not tarnish and is easy to keep clean. Used for applications where stainless steel pipes come into contact with food and other sensitive products.
Stainless Steel Mechanical TubingCan be manipulated to have a variety of cross-sectional shapes, such as square and rectangular. Used in mechanical applications such as cylinders, bearings and other hollow formed parts.
Stainless Steel Aircraft TubingHigh strength, weldability with heat and corrosion resistance. Used in highly specific aircraft applications that require welded and seamless tubing in large sizes.
Aircraft Hydraulic-Line TubingTypically small in size with high strength, corrosion resistance and ductility. Used in aerospace applications such as fuel lines and hydraulic systems.
