Instrumentation fittings are used to join tubing and piping together to create a process line. There are many different instrumentation fittings, but stainless steel 304N is one of the most popular. Stainless steel 304N is an austenitic chromium-nickel alloy that contains between 18-20% chromium and 8-10.5% nickel. Additionally, this alloy contains small amounts of carbon, silicon, manganese, molybdenum, and nitrogen. This combination of elements gives stainless steel 304N instrumentation fittings excellent corrosion resistance, weldability, formability, and toughness.
Stainless steel 304N instrumentation fittings are primarily used in piping systems because of their durability. They have excellent high corrosion resistance to many industrial chemicals and solvents in oxidizing and reducing environments. Furthermore, these fittings are highly oxidation-resistant at temperatures up to 870°C and have good thermal fatigue strength above 600°C. Due to the greater pressure handling capacity of stainless steel 304N instruments, they have proven to withstand higher operating pressures than mild steel instruments or tubing. These fittings also offer outstanding tensile and flexural properties for improved component performance. Additionally, stainless steel 304N instrumentation is easy-to-install and maintains its exceptional properties in various temperatures, making it ideal for control and laboratory applications.
