Classification and Application of Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings

Because of the main characteristics of stainless steel: weldability, corrosion resistance, polishing performance, heat resistance, etc., stainless steel pipe fittings have good corrosion resistance, and stainless steel pipe fittings can still maintain their excellent physical and mechanical properties at high temperatures.

1. Classification of stainless steel pipe fittings

Stainless steel pipe fittings belong to a kind of pipe fittings. They are made of stainless steel so they are called stainless steel pipe fittings. They include: stainless steel elbows, stainless steel tees, stainless steel crosses, stainless steel reducers, and stainless steel caps.

According to the connection method, it can be divided into four categories: socket stainless steel pipe fittings, threaded stainless steel pipe fittings, flanged stainless steel pipe fittings and welded stainless steel pipe fittings. Stainless steel elbows are used where pipe fittings are turned; flanges are used to connect pipes and pipes to each other, connected to the end of the pipe, stainless steel three-way pipes are used where three pipes meet; stainless steel four-way pipes are used where four pipes meet; stainless steel reducers are used where two pipes of different diameters are connected.

2. Pipe Fittings Application

Stainless steel pipe fittings can be electroplated with paint or oxidation-resistant metals (for example, zinc, nickel, and chromium) to ensure the surface of carbon steel, but, as people know, this protection is only a thin film. If the protective layer is damaged, the steel below will begin to corrode and is resistant to weak corrosive media such as air, steam, water, and acid, alkali, salt and other chemically corrosive media.

Stainless steel pipe fittings are used most often in pressure vessels and chemical industries. The general oil refinery equipment factory has a large demand. Other aspects, such as chemical, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and other industries can be applied. It is widely used in industrial transportation pipelines and mechanical structural parts such as petroleum, chemical industry, medical treatment, food, light industry, and mechanical instrumentation.
