316 stainless steel pipes/tubes


What are 316 stainless steel pipes/tubes?


316 stainless steel pipe/tube is a kind of hollow long round steel, the material is stainless steel 316 mainly widely used in petroleum, chemical, medical, food, light industry, mechanical instrumentation, and other industrial transmission pipeline and mechanical structure parts, etc..


In addition, in the bending, torsional strength of the same, lighter weight, so also widely used in the manufacture of mechanical parts and engineering structures. Also commonly used for the production of various conventional weapons, gun barrels, shells, etc.

Varieties: 316 stainless steel tube/pipe, 316 stainless steel mirror tube/pipe, 316 stainless steel sanded tube/pipe, 316 stainless steel decorative tube/pipe, 316 stainless steel capillary tube/pipe, 316 stainless steel welded tube/pipe, 316 stainless steel seamless tube/pipe.

316 stainless steel cannot be hardened by heat treatment.


Applications petroleum, chemical, medical, food, light industry, etc. Typical applications Heat exchangers for pulp and paper equipment, dyeing equipment, film processing equipment, piping, exterior materials for buildings in coastal areas


316 stainless steel pipe/tube with a maximum carbon content of 0.03 can be used in applications where annealing is not possible after welding and where maximum corrosion resistance is required.


316 and 317 stainless steel (see below for properties of 317 stainless steel) are molybdenum-containing stainless steel grades.


The total performance of this steel grade is better than 310 and 304 stainless steel, and 316 stainless steel has a wide range of uses under high-temperature conditions when the concentration of sulfuric acid is below 15% and above 85%.


316 stainless steel plate corrosion resistance.

Corrosion resistance is better than 304 stainless steel and has good corrosion resistance in the production process of pulp and paper.


The resistance to carbide precipitation of 316 stainless steel is better than 304 stainless steel, available in the above temperature range.


316 stainless steel round pipe/tube theoretical weight calculation formula: (outside diameter - wall thickness) × wall thickness × 0.02491 = the weight of each meter (kg)
