The Stainless Steel 317L Plates contain molybdenum and lower amount of carbon. This makes it austenitic stainless steel enrich with numerous features. With the carbon and molybdenum you will also find the use of nickel and chromium in it. All these elements improves it corrosions resistance property. This saves the plates from attack of the acetic, sulfurous, citric, and tartaric and formic acids. As carbon involvement is lower in it that makes it works against the sensitization like high creep and welded. Beside this, its tensile strength also gets enhanced when it goes under the elevated temperature.
Let’s go in more deep!
Actually, Stainless Steel 317L Plates are non-magnetic in nature under the annealed temperature but when it comes in the welded field it change it property from non-magnetic to magnetic. Talking about the applications where it is used highly in food processing equipments, paper and pulp industry, petrochemical industry and textile industry and many
