Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings contain 10.5% chromium of its total weight. The other name for Stainless Steel is Inox Steel. The name Inox translates to inoxidizable steel in French. The resistance properties of SS pipe fittings is well-known. Reducing acids cannot corrode Stainless Steel easily. It can also resist pitting in chloride solutions. Thus, SS is usable in applications where high strength and corrosion resistance is required.
Pipe Fittings are come in a variety of types such as Tee, Cross, Reducer, Cap, Elbows, Stub End. The Low maintenance of SS make it usable in many applications. Stainless Steel is used in common household items like utensils to industry specified applications. Chemical plants, chemical tankers, paper mills, water treatment and road tankers. SS also finds heavy usage in medical industry. Phosphoric and nitric acids are well resisted by Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings. Stainless Steel comes in four types martensitic, Austenitic, Ferritic and Duplex Steel. Austenitic steels make up for the largest group of SS family. It makes up for about two-third of Stainless Steel production.
