316/316L stainless steel tube
is a hollow long circular steel, mainly used in petroleum, chemical, medical, food, light industry, mechanical instruments and other industrial pipelines and mechanical structural components. In addition, the bending, torsion strength of the same, the lighter weight, it is also widely used in the manufacture of mechanical parts and engineering structure. Also used for the production of conventional weapons, barrels, shells and so on.
1. The maximum carbon content of the 316 stainless steel tube is 0.03, which can be used in applications where annealing can not be carried out and maximum corrosion resistance is required.
2. 316/316L and 317 stainless steel (317 stainless steel performance see below) is molybdenum-containing stainless steel. The overall performance of the steel is better than 310 and 304 stainless steel
, high temperature conditions, when the sulfuric acid concentration is less than 15% and higher than 85%, 316/316L
stainless steel has a wide range of uses.
3. 316/316L stainless steel plate, also known as 00Cr17Ni14Mo2 Corrosion resistance: corrosion resistance is better than 304 stainless steel, in the pulp and paper production process has a good corrosion resistance. 316 stainless steel is also resistant to marine and aggressive industrial atmospheres.
In intermittent use below 1600 degrees and continuous use below 700 degrees, 316 stainless steel has good oxidation resistance;
In the range of 800-1575 degrees, it is best not to use 316 stainless steel continuously, but when 316 stainless steel is used continuously outside this temperature range, the stainless steel has good heat resistance. the
The carbide precipitation resistance of 316L stainless steel is better than that of 316 stainless steel, and the above temperature range can be used.
Annealing is carried out in the temperature range of 1850-2050 degrees, followed by rapid annealing and rapid cooling. 316 stainless steel cannot be hardened by heat treatment.
316 stainless steel has good welding performance. All standard welding methods can be used for welding. According to the application, 316Cb, 316L or 309Cb stainless steel filler rods or welding rods can be used for welding. In order to obtain the best corrosion resistance, the welded section of 316 stainless steel needs to be annealed after welding. If 316L stainless steel is used, post-weld annealing is not required.
