2022-12-05 16:50:34  News

316 stainless steel is one of the more popular stainless steel grades. It offers good corrosion resistance and strength and is a good choice for a wide range of applications. It has a high chromium content (about 16 to 18%). It also contains molybdenum. This addition enhances its corrosion resistance. It also increases its toughness and resistance to pitting.

It is a type of austenitic stainless steel. It retains its toughness and strength over a wide temperature range, making it an ideal choice for welding fillers.

It is also resistant to corrosive media and has good resistance to atmospheric and seawater conditions. It is used in a number of applications, including medical equipment, heat exchangers, pharmaceutical equipment, and industrial equipment.

Type 316 is the second most popular grade after 304. It is mainly used in pressure vessels and parts used in marine environments. It is also used in valve and pump parts. It has excellent resistance to hydrochloric acid corrosion and sulfuric acid corrosion. It is also effective against acetic acid corrosion.

Type 316 is used in pressure vessels, exhaust manifolds, and chemical processing equipment. It has a higher resistance to chloride corrosion than 304. It is a good choice for marine applications because it is resistant to chloride solutions.

316 stainless steel is also less expensive to manufacture than 304. It has better corrosion resistance and is easier to machine. It can be welded and machined using standard sheet metal working techniques.
