Stainless Steel Seamless Pipe
Stainless steel pipe is used for a variety of reasons: to resist corrosion and oxidation, to resist high temperatures, for cleanliness and low maintenance costs, and to maintain the purity of materials that come in contact with stainless. The inherent characteristics of stainless steel permit the design of thin wall piping systems without fear of early failure due to corrosion. Worldwide Pipe & Supply has seamless stainless steel pipe that has can be annealed, pickled, mill finished, or polished.

What is ASTM A312?
ASTM A312 is a specification for seamless stainless steel pipes that can withstand high temperatures and corrosive environments. The common grades for this specification are 304/304L and 316/316L.
Applications of 304 Stainless Steel
Type 304 stainless is the most widely used analysis for general corrosive resistant tubing and pipe applications; it is used in chemical plants, refineries, paper mills, and food processing industries. Type 304 has a maximum carbon content of .08%. It is not recommended for use in the temperature range between 800°F and 1650°F due to carbide precipitation at the grain boundaries which can result in intergranular corrosion and early failure under certain conditions.
Applications of 316 Stainless Steel
Type 316 is widely used in the sulfite paper industry and for manufacturing chemical plant apparatus, photographic equipment, and plastics. Type 316L, like 304L, is held to a maximum carbon content of .03%. This permits its use in welded assemblies without the need of final heat treatment. It is used extensively for pipe assemblies with welded fitting.
