317 Stainless Steel washer is a popular and practical choice for numerous applications due to its chemical composition of 18-20% chromium, 3-4% nickel, 0.2-3% molybdenum, and small amounts of manganese, sulfur, phosphorus, and silicon. It is known for its remarkable corrosion resistance against both acidic and alkaline solutions and chlorine salts. Adding a higher molybdenum content of about 304 grades enhances the metal's overall strength levels at elevated temperatures - meaning this type of stainless steel is particularly well suited for boisterous operating conditions.

Stainless Steel Washer317  is a highly corrosion-resistant, reactive stainless steel washer often used in machinery and equipment production. It provides excellent aqueous corrosion resistance due to its higher molybdenum content and exhibits better pitting and crevice corrosion resistance than regular 304-grade steel. In addition, SS 317 Washer has increased yield and tensile strength compared to standard 304 grades, making it ideally suited for applications in highly corrosive environments such as water processing, chemical processing, and food-related industries. Its high degree of passivation ensures outstanding protection from acidic elements, chlorides, and halogens.

FAQ's for Stainless Steel 317 Washer

The primary difference between 316 and 317 is that 317 has higher levels of molybdenum in its composition. This makes it more corrosion resistant than its counterpart, especially in acidic environments where chlorides are present. It also has a higher tensile strength and yield strength than other grades of stainless steel.

Yes, you can use 317 stainless steel for welding. Although it has low carbon content, it can still be welded without issue due to its higher levels of alloys such as molybdenum and chromium. These elements improve the quality and durability of the weld joint when compared to other grades of stainless steel.

Common applications include chemical processing equipment such as heat exchangers, piping systems, tanks, pharmaceutical equipment and food processing equipment due to its superior corrosion resistance properties when compared to other grades of stainless steel.
