What is stainless steel used for? - Applications you should know
The stainless steel is actually an umbrella term encompassing a huge range of alloys: the
wide variety of stainless steel pipe allows use in a very wide range and a vast number of
Uses of stainless steel
Architecture and construction
The fact that 304 Stainless Steel Pipe has various types of finishes and is highly flexible,
corrosion resistant, strong, easy to work with, and moldable, allows it to be increasingly used
as a construction material in large-scale, high-impact buildings.
Although it has always been quite common for a53 grade b stainless steel to be used inside
buildings as an accessory (on handrails, countertops, etc.), it now serves on a larger scale as
an external cladding.
The incredible range of ways it can be molded, folded, and shaped makes it perfect for
creating amazing and experimental buildings.
Medical and surgical team
There are two ways that SS 316L pipe is used in the medical field. The first point refers to
the manufacture of objects such as dental instruments, surgical tables and metal kidneys.
The fact that alloy steel pipe can be sterilized and not corrode easily makes it an ideal
substance for objects that have to be sterile in order to prevent and treat infections.
As a second point, austenitic din 2391 st52 stainless steel is used in the manufacture of
objects that only require moderate force, such as pins, cannulas and steam sterilizers.
Martensitic steel, on the other hand, because it can be hardened, is more suitable for the
manufacture of instruments such as scalpels, forceps, and surgical chisels.
Another area that this SS 316 Pipe uses is that of surgical implants: objects such as nails and
plates to hold broken bones and replace joints.
Underwater drilling
The rugged yet lightweight nature of Carbon steel pipe makes it the perfect material for
building offshore oil and gas platforms.
If you did not know, crude oil is a very corrosive substance and therefore the most modern
platforms today must be made of a large alloy called super-austenitic steel.
Chemical and pharmaceutical industry
By its nature, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry deals with toxic, dangerous and
highly corrosive substances. Consequently, it is vital that the components, pipes and storage
tanks are constructed of high gradea333 grade stainless steel.
Super stainless steel square pipe is the most common in this sector due to its great
resistance. Furthermore, the fact that it can be produced in the form of large stainless steel
plates minimizes the need for welding. In this way, the integrity of the structure is
Heat and energy
Heating systems or those that store energy (such as solar energy) in the form of heat need to
be built with materials capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 500 degrees Celsius.
The a106 grade b stainless steel alloys with chromium and molybdenum are capable of
working at such extreme temperatures. That is why they are the material for the construction
of power stations of any kind.
