The high content of chromium and nickel in the 310 Stainless Steel Seamless Pipe gives the steel excellent resistance to oxidation and high strength at high temperatures. It is commonly used in applications for water handling and for the food manufacturing, petrochemical, and chemical industries as well. Wherever there is a need for piping to protect itself from normal rusting, the 310 Stainless Steel Welded Pipe can be used safely.
Type 310S is an austenitic stainless steel that is low carbon. Type 310S, which is a lower carbon version of Type 310, is known for its ability to withstand high temperature applications and also provides users a range of advantages, including:
- Outstanding corrosion resistance
- Strong resistance to aqueous corrosion
- Not susceptible to cyclic heating and thermal fatigue
- Superior in most environments to Form 304 and 309
- Strong resistance at temperatures up to 2100 degree F
Because of Type 310S’s excellent properties a wide range of industries use Type 310S for a number of applications including Furnaces, Oil burners, Heat exchangers, Welding filler wire and electrodes, Cryogenics, Kilns, Food processing equipment.
Stainless steel 310/310s pipes
Stainless steel pipes of grade 310 are essentially stainless steel of medium carbon that can be used for higher temperature applications such as heat treatment equipment and parts of the furnace. The bearing temperature is 1035 degrees C in continuous service and can tolerate a temperature of 1150 degrees C in intermittent service. Compared to grade 310, 310S is often referred to as the low-carbon edition.
Stainless Steel 310/310S Applications
It is used in kilns, fluidized bed combustors, tube hangers and steam boilers, lead pots, and refractory anchor bolts. The usual applications of grade 310/310S are It is also used for machinery, muffles, cryogenic frameworks, and retorts for food production.
Grade 310/310s Properties
These grades consist of 20% nickel and 25% chromium. This is what makes it incredibly corrosion and oxidation resistant. Grade 310S is actually a low-carbon variant that is less flat than fragile. In facilities, it also exhibits sensitization. The highest and medium content of chromium and nickel makes stainless steel capable of minimizing the H2S-containing sulphuric atmosphere.
They are used in moderate carburizing atmospheres like in petrochemical environments. In more extreme atmospheres, heat resisting alloys are used. For quenching using frequent thermal shock liquids, grade 310 is not recommended at all. Due to poor magnetic permeability and hardness, this grade type is also exercised in cryogenic applications. These grades, in common with austenitic SS, are not at all hardened by heat treatment.
Grade 310/310S Chemical Compositions
There are various chemical compositions of both grade 310 and grade 310S stainless steel, which are summarised in the following paragraphs. Carbon, silicon, sulphur, manganese, phosphorus, nickel, and chromium are found in grades 310 and 310 S. This chemical composition is different for each element.
Mechanical Properties of Grade 310/310S
The mechanical properties of grades 310/310S are summarised with 205, 520, 40, and 225 respectively as- grade 0.2 percent proof stress, tensile strength, elongation and hardness.
Physical Properties of Grade 310/310S
The physical characteristics of stainless steel 310/310S are summarised as- respectively, at room temperature density, electrical resistivity, shear modulus, poisson ration, electrical conductivity, and melting point. Relative magnetic permeability, coefficient of expansion, and thermal conductivity are other physical characteristics that make it amazing.
