The introduction of 316L stainless steel pipe

316L stainless steel pipe is a commonly used stainless steel pipe. Because of its excellent corrosion resistance, it is widely used in the chemical industry.

Its raw material 316L is a kind of stainless steel containing a chemical component – molybdenum. Due to the addition of molybdenum in the steel, the overall performance of 316 L stainless steel pipe is better than that of other common stainless steel pipes, like 304 and 316 pipe.

The chemical composition of 316L stainless steel tube is shown below:

C Si Mn S P Cr Ni Mo
Content ≤0.030 ≤1.00 ≤2.00 ≤0.030 ≤0.045 16.00~18.00 10.00~14.00 2.00~3.00

Compared with other common steel pipes, 316L stainless steel pipes have superior overall performance, mainly in the following two aspects:

Excellent corrosion resistance:

The corrosion resistance of 316L stainless steel pipe is better than commonly used 304 stainless steel pipe and 316L stainless steel pipe. In particular, it has excellent resistance to chloride erosion, which can be maintained in the Marine environment.

Excellent heat resistance:

316L stainless steel pipes provide excellent heat resistance and oxidation resistance when used in continuous high temperature environments.
