How To Choose Stainless Steel Round Pipe?

May 24 2023

When buying stainless steel round pipes, I often feel a headache because I don’t know what material to choose, because the better the material of the stainless steel pipe, the more expensive it is and the higher the cost. The 304 stainless steel round tube material still has strong corrosion resistance in nitric acid with a concentration of ≤65% below the boiling temperature. Not only that, it also has good corrosion resistance to alkaline solutions and most organic and inorganic acids. Stainless steel is a high-alloy steel that can resist corrosive substances in air or chemical corrosive media. It is a steel with beautiful surface and good corrosion resistance. It does not require surface treatment such as plating, but can exert the inherent surface properties of stainless steel. ,Has many uses. What kind of material is good and suitable for your own use?

Stainless steel round pipe is divided into 201 material, 304 material and 316L material. In fact, for stainless steel round pipes, the quality of the material is not the most critical, the use environment is the most important. Due to the different use environments, the requirements for corrosion resistance are also different, so the materials used are also different.

201 stainless steel round tube contains 0.8 nickel and 12 chromium. It will not corrode and rust when used in general atmospheric environment. Because there is no factory pollution and sea salt corrosion, it will generally not rust.

The 304 stainless steel round tube contains 8 nickel 18 chromium. The oxide film produced by the high content of these rare elements can protect the stainless steel decorative tube. Therefore, the 304 stainless steel round tube is more resistant to corrosion and Anti-rust. If you want a longer service life or an environment that is exposed to water, stainless steel round pipes are recommended.

316L stainless steel round pipe has better corrosion resistance, and can be used even in marine environment and strong acid environment, but the cost is relatively high. You can choose whether to use it according to your own requirements.
