STAINLESS STEEL PIPES
STAINLESS STEEL PIPES
- a hollow product made of stainless steel. It has a certain length, constant cross section and wall thickness.
If you decide to start manufacturing stainless steel pipe products or just buy a stainless steel pipe for personal use - this site is just what you need. The company Steinles Steel Ukraine will delight you with the richness of choosing a stainless pipe in the city of Kiev.
Before you buy a stainless steel pipe and carry out any further actions with it, you should know some details of the selection and further operation of the stainless steel pipe product.
Remember one important rule: not all stainless steel pipe is the same. Stainless steel pipe is different. In operation, the stainless pipe remains stainless under certain conditions. If these conditions are not met, the corrosion process may begin. Therefore, it is very important to choose a steel grade. Our company supplies stainless steel pipes in two steel grades: AISI 304 (food grade) and AISI 201 (technical grade). AISI 304 stainless steel pipe has a high degree of corrosion resistance. AISI 201 pipes have a much lower degree.
In our warehouse, the pipe is classified into several types:
➖ steel grade, as mentioned above:
AISI 201 and AISI 304
➖ in cross-sectional shape:
❶ stainless round pipe
❷ stainless profile pipe, which in turn is divided into several subtypes: square, rectangular, flat oval.
The entire stainless steel pipe that is in our warehouse has a surface roughness of 600 GRIT, which in clear language means mirror, polished, glossy.
By the manufacturing method, the pipe supplied by us to the Ukrainian market is welded. TIG welding method (Tungset Inert Gas). This method is used more than others for the production of high-quality welded pipes. The source of the heat generator for melting the edges is an arc that forms between the tungsten electrode and the pipe. The shielding gas directed to the welding torch envelops the melting zone from the outer surface of the stainless pipe and at the same time, but in a different way, flows inside the stainless pipe to protect the melting zone and from the inside, holding it with a plug. In the TIG welding method, due to the effect of heat only on the outer surface of the stainless pipe, the melting zone is inevitably surrounded by a large zone of thermal irritation, as a result of which the seam is wider. But for the same reason, the TIG seam is more durable and easier to remove. The speed of TIG welding is low and, therefore, the price of a stainless pipe will be higher than when using other types of welding. The seam obtained by the TIG method is dense, uniform, without voids and shells. The weld coefficient of such a pipe = 1 (the strength of the weld corresponds to the strength of the main material of the pipe).
Stainless pipe application:
The scope of stainless pipes with this welding method is quite wide: this is decor, structures, transport, food industry, chemical, petrochemical, gas, energy, paper industries, heat exchangers, evaporators, desalination plants, pharmaceutical industry and many other areas.
Pipes manufactured to ASTM A554.
