Stainless Steel Grade 304

  • Composition and properties
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Most widely used grade
  • Applications such as water treatment, food and beverage, etc.

Stainless Steel Grade 316L

  • Composition and addition of molybdenum
  • Better corrosion resistance than 304
  • Used in applications with chlorides and salts
  • Pharmaceutical, chemical and process industry applications

Stainless Steel Grade 316Ti

  • Addition of titanium for strength and heat resistance
  • Highest corrosion resistance
  • Ideal for highly acidic and caustic environments
  • Used in mining, chemical processing, pollution control

Choosing the Right Stainless Housing

  • Consider fluid properties and environment
  • Determine required pressure ratings and design standards
  • Understand temperature resistance needs
  • Consider weld-ability and machining needs
