304 stainless steel tubing is the most commonly used stainless steel tubing material in our lives. 304 stainless steel tubing is a grade of stainless steel produced in accordance with the American ASTM standard. 304 stainless steel is the most widely used stainless steel pipe material. 304 stainless steel tubing is called 18/8 stainless steel pipe in the industry. It can withstand high temperature of 800℃, has the characteristics of good processing performance and high toughness. Huashang will share with you which fields 304 stainless steel pipes are widely used in:
304 stainless steel pipes are used in the food industry, and 304 stainless steel water pipes are the best direct drinking water delivery pipes. 304 stainless tube pipe has the characteristics of low water leakage rate and can save water resources. In the 1980s, the water leakage rate of water pipes was around 17%, and the water leakage rate dropped to 7% after switching to 304 stainless steel pipes. In addition, compared with copper water pipes, 304 stainless steel water pipes have better water permeability and will not corrode at high flow rates. Its thermal insulation is also 24 times that of copper pipes.
304 stainless steel pipes are used in the industrial field, mainly used in petroleum, chemical, medical, food, light industry, mechanical instrumentation and other industrial pipelines and mechanical structural parts. In addition, when the bending and torsion strength are the same, 304 stainless steel pipe is lighter, so it is also widely used in the manufacture of mechanical parts and engineering structures. 304 stainless steel pipes are also often used as automobile frames and exhaust pipes, as well as for the production of various conventional weapons, gun barrels, and shells. 304 stainless steel industrial pipes can be divided into oil well pipes, line pipes, boiler pipes, mechanical structure pipes, hydraulic prop pipes, gas cylinder pipes, geological pipes, chemical pipes and marine pipes according to their uses.
