Specifications of Stainless Steel Tubes:

316L stainless steel is Mo-contained material, the overall mechanical performance is better than 301 and 304. In the high temperature environment with sulfuric acid(C%<15% or C%>85%), 316L stainless steel sheet has a good performance. Meanwhile, 316L stainless steel also has good resistance to chloride corrosion performance, it is usually used in the marine environment.

the low carbon version of 316 and is immune from sensitisation (grain boundary carbide precipitation). Thus it is extensively used in heavy gauge welded components (over about 6mm). There is commonly no appreciable price difference between 316 and 316L stainless steel.

Applications of Stainless Steel Pipes/Tubes:

Conditions for nuclear fuel reactor environment is extremely harsh. The inner tube environment will undertake a high temperature. The liquid sodium reach up to 600 ℃. the internal pressure will reach to 100 times of atmospheres; the whole flux for the tube reach to 10 to (14) neutron irradiation ~ 10 ~ (15) nv . In such harsh conditions, materials should have good corrosion resistance and good durability under thermal stress conditions and thermal shock which result from thermal cycling and temperature difference . Therefore, many countries have been doing many test and research cladding tube. Based on these studies, the current deformation rate of 316L stainless steel tube reach to 15 to 20% in the application of fast fuel reactor. In fact, the actual production and application of 316L stainless steel seamless steel pipe can undertake higher temperature than 304. It also can undertake more corrosion resistant and occupy a certain market share.
