Stainless pipe for the pipeline
Conventional steel pipelines, previously universally used for laying water pipes, heating systems and various other utilities, had a number of drawbacks, the most important of which was susceptibility to corrosion. That is why steel pipes had to be replaced every 10-15 years. In addition, metal oxidation products deposited on the inner walls sharply worsened the quality of drinking water and reduced the pipe throughput diameter.
All this has led to the fact that in modern water supply systems, stainless steel pipe is increasingly being used as structural elements. Corrosion-proof pipe is ideal for installation of water supply and heating systems. And this is understandable, because it is not only able to serve without replacement for many years, but also provides high hygiene in contact with drinking water. Due to the indifferent attitude to acids and alkalis and excellent mechanical strength, stainless steel pipelines are the best option for use in food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Despite the higher cost of the starting materials, the costs of laying heating and water pipelines from stainless steel are ultimately comparable to the costs of completing pipelines from another material, taking into account the absence of maintenance costs and the minimum layout time when using a crimping system. But, even stainless steel can oxidize if the chlorine content of the drinking water transported through the water supply lines exceeds the permissible limits. In this case, foci of rust form on the inner surface of the stainless pipes. However, with the normalization of the composition of the aquatic environment, these areas are inhibited and subsequently the material, as before, resists rust. For prophylaxis, sections of water pipes through which a concentrated chlorine solution is supplied to disinfect water supply systems should be washed periodically in order to neutralize the harmful effects of chlorine.
All these qualities make it possible to assert that a stainless pipe is ideal for heating and water supply systems. You can buy a stainless steel pipe from us in Kiev by contacting our sales department.
