316ln stainless steel valves are made from iron, molybdenum, chromium, nickel and manganese. It is designed to be highly durable and robust, withstanding high temperatures and pressures for various applications. These valves have exceptional corrosion resistance due to the addition of nitrogen which helps prevent rusting by forming a protective layer. The low amount of carbon makes this type of stainless steel less hard but also more resistant to welding-induced corrosion. With such an impressive composition, it’s no wonder why 316ln stainless steel valves are a popular choice for plumbing, food processing and chemical storage products!
The 316ln SS valve is a cost-effective and versatile solution for numerous applications. Its properties include excellent corrosion resistance in fresh and saltwater, good oxidation resistance, non-magnetic properties and durability. Since it can be used in elevated temperature environments up to 1700°F without affecting its hardness, it's possible to gain a longer service life with this particular type of steel valve. Additionally, these valves offer increased process safety when used in high-purity systems as they are not prone to the leaching of metals or other components into the fluid stream. Applications where 316ln ss valves are an ideal choice range from industrial equipment, pumps and compressed air systems to fire protection and hazardous chemical processes.
Yes, 316LN stainless steel valves can be welded using standard welding methods, including TIG, MIG, and stick welding. It is important to use filler materials that are compatible with the 316LN alloy and to properly clean and prepare the surfaces to be welded.
The main difference between 316L and 316LN stainless steel valves is the addition of nitrogen to the 316LN alloy. This addition improves the mechanical properties and corrosion resistance of the material, making it suitable for use in high-stress and high-corrosion environments.
Yes, 316LN stainless steel valves have excellent corrosion resistance, particularly in environments that contain chlorides or other corrosive materials.
