With the rapid development of the stainless steel tube industry, it has become more and more common in application. Today, I will introduce the application field of stainless steel tubes to help you understand more about the use of stainless steel tubes.
stainless steel tube

1. Automobile industryStainless steel is mainly used in the exhaust system, accounting for more than 1/2 of the total amount of automotive stainless steel, 80% of which is ferritic stainless steel. The exhaust gas produced by the car engine passes through the exhaust gas intake pipe, the front pipe, the hose, the converter, and the center pipe, and finally flows out of the muffler. Common steel grades for exhaust systems are 409L, 436L, etc. Automotive mufflers mainly use stainless steel welded pipes. It is estimated that stainless steel tubes used in automobiles account for about 1.5% of the total downstream use of stainless steel tubes, while the ratio of stainless steel seamless pipes to welded pipes is about 2:1.
2. Petrochemical industry including the fertilizer industryThere is a huge demand for stainless steel tubes. The industry mainly uses stainless steel seamless tubes. The specifications include: 304, 321, 316, 316L, 347, 317L, etc., the outer diameter is about ¢18-¢610, and the wall thickness is 6mm- About 50mm (generally choose medium and low-pressure pipelines with specifications above Φ159mm), the specific application fields are: furnace tubes, material conveying tubes, heat exchanger tubes, etc.
3. Fluid transportation such as water and gasStainless steel tubes and their water delivery equipment are the most advanced basic water purification materials in the world today, with strong anti-corrosion properties, which cannot be compared with cast iron pipes, carbon steel pipes, and plastic pipes.
The best material for the water industry such as water preparation, storage, transportation, purification, regeneration, seawater desalination, etc. The annual demand is about 25,000 tons.
4. Equipment manufacturing and maintenanceThe annual consumption of stainless steel tubes is more than 20,000 tons. Such industries mainly use sanitary or antibacterial grade stainless steel tubes. Hygienic seamless pipes made of imported SUS304 and 316L can meet the special requirements of various media in the fields of food and biopharmaceuticals. Antibacterial stainless steel has the advantages of stainless steel and good antibacterial properties, and the demand is increasing in the fields of kitchen equipment, workbenches and utensils in the food industry, medical equipment, tableware, and towels racks in daily life, and brackets for refrigerators.
The above is the application range of stainless steel tubes, I hope to help everyone.
