Stainless steel 316L valves are composed of various elements to meet their specific alloy requirements. This steel alloy contains mainly iron, an average of 16-18% chromium, 10-14% nickel, 2-3% molybdenum and tiny amounts of other elements like nitrogen, silicon and carbon. The combination of these metals forms a corrosion-resistant material that is very strong yet relatively lightweight. Its exceptional corrosion resistance and strength make it ideal for industrial piping systems and consumer products.
316L stainless steel valves are a common component of industrial equipment and machines. These valves are remarkably reliable in large-scale production due to their highly corrosion-resistant properties. This corrosion resistance is derived from stainless steel’s high chromium content, making it an ideal component to use in water pipelines, oil and gas transmission systems and any other application where survival of extreme chemical or temperature elements is essential. Other notable properties of this metal include its weldability, durability and strength, making it an excellent choice for various applications, including handles, locks, hinges and springs, due to its availability in different grades and thicknesses. Each step is designed for specific applications depending on the requirements at hand.
