Offering industry-leading oxidation protection and corrosion resistance, stainless steel 310 pipe is an austenitic chromium-nickel alloy crafted with a unique combination of twenty-five percent chromium and twenty percent nickel, as well as trace amounts of silicon, manganese, and carbon.
Properties of stainless steel 310 pipe allow it to resist corrosion from outside elements, due to its high chromium and nickel content. Its silicon content can shield it from oxidation and carburization, while the manganese fortifies its impact resistance. And lastly, the carbon it contains increases the metal’s mass as well as its hardness.
Boiler and heat exchanger applications often take advantage of stainless steel 310 pipe’s excellent combination of properties, which render it ideal for usage in high temperature conditions. This steel can also be seen employed in food or pharmaceutical processing equipment, as well as in chemical plants.
Stainless steel 310 pipe can be acquired in both welded and seamless forms, with the metal typically presented in either an annealed or heat treated state. To amplify the strength and hardness of the steel, a process of heating it beyond its critical temperature then cooling it at an expedited rate is deployed.
Stainless steel 310 pipe is conveniently available in a multitude of sizes and ready to be trimmed to any dimension, allowing for personalized projects and flexible application. Uniting the pipe with myriad welding techniques is easily accessible and forming it through either cold or hot working methods is a breeze.
