Stainless Steel Pipes and Pipe Fittings
At Om Steel, we are committed to providing high-quality stainless steel pipes and pipe fittings that are designed to meet the unique needs of our clients. Our stainless steel pipes are manufactured using the latest technology and high-quality raw materials, ensuring they are durable, reliable, and long-lasting.
One of the key features of our stainless steel pipes is their corrosion resistance. Stainless steel pipes are known for their excellent resistance to corrosion, making them ideal for use in harsh environments where other materials may fail. This is because stainless steel contains chromium, which reacts with oxygen to form a protective layer on the surface of the material.
Another important feature of our stainless steel pipes is their strength and durability. Stainless steel pipes are known for their high strength-to-weight ratio, which makes them ideal for use in heavy-duty applications. They are also resistant to wear and tear, making them a popular choice for applications where the material is subjected to constant stress.
At Om Steel, we offer a wide range of stainless steel pipe sizes and thicknesses to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Our stainless steel pipes are available in various finishes, including mirror, brushed, and satin, to meet different aesthetic preferences.
Different Types of Stainless Steel Used in the Production of Pipe and Fittings
Austenitic Stainless Steel
Austenitic stainless steel is the most commonly used type of stainless steel for pipe and fittings due to its excellent corrosion resistance, formability, weldability, and toughness. It contains high levels of chromium (usually 18% or more) and nickel (usually 8% or more) which provide its superior corrosion resistance. Austenitic stainless steel can be further classified into two subgroups: 300 series and 200 series.
The 300 series austenitic stainless steels are the most widely used for pipe and fittings due to their excellent corrosion resistance even in harsh environments such as marine or chemical processing plants. The most common grades within this group are 304/304L (UNS S30400/S30403), 316/316L (UNS S31600/S31603), and 321 (UNS S32100). These grades offer a good combination of strength, ductility, formability, weldability, and corrosion resistance.
Ferritic Stainless Steel
Ferritic stainless steel is another type of stainless steel that is commonly used for pipe and fittings due to its good corrosion resistance, high-temperature strength, low thermal expansion coefficient, and magnetic properties. It contains high levels of chromium (usually 12% or more) and low levels of nickel (usually less than 2%). Ferritic stainless steel can be further classified into two subgroups: standard and stabilized.
The standard ferritic stainless steels are the most commonly used for pipe and fittings due to their good corrosion resistance in mildly corrosive environments such as water or atmospheric conditions. The most common grades within this group are 409 (UNS S40900), 430 (UNS S43000), and 439 (UNS S43035).
Martensitic Stainless Steel
Martensitic stainless steel is a type of stainless steel that is commonly used for pipe and fittings that require high strength, hardness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. It contains high levels of chromium (usually 12% or more) and low levels of nickel (usually less than 2%). Martensitic stainless steel can be further classified into two subgroups: heat-treatable and precipitation hardenable.
The heat-treatable martensitic stainless steels can be hardened by heat treatment to achieve high strength, hardness, and wear resistance but at the cost of reduced ductility, toughness, formability, and corrosion resistance. The most common grades within this group are 410 (UNS S41000) and 420 (UNS S42000).
Duplex Stainless Steel
Duplex stainless steel is a type of stainless steel that contains both austenitic and ferritic microstructures in roughly equal proportions. It offers a unique combination of high strength, toughness, corrosion resistance, and weldability. Duplex stainless steel can be further classified into two subgroups: standard and super.
The standard duplex stainless steels are the most commonly used for pipe and fittings due to their good corrosion resistance in aggressive environments such as those containing chlorides or acids. The most common grades within this group are 2205 (UNS S32205/S31803) and 2507 (UNS S32750).
