Common Applications

316 stainless steel‘s superior corrosion resistance and strength make it a popular choice in industries where resistance to corrosive environments is crucial. When you want to use 316 stainless steel in marine, you must understand that it is subject to pitting and crevice corrosion in warm chloride environments and to stress corrosion cracking above about 122°F (50°C).

♦ Marine applications: Due to superior resistance to corrosion by seawater and salt spray, it is used in boat fittings, marine hardware, offshore structures, and coastal architecture.
♦ Chemical processing: With excellent resistance to corrosive chemicals, it is employed in chemical reactors, storage tanks, piping systems, valves, and other equipment.
♦ Food and beverage: 316 stainless steel can be used for food processing equipment, storage tanks, brewing equipment, and dairy processing.
♦ Pharmaceutical and medical: It is widely used for surgical instruments, medical implants, laboratory equipment, and pharmaceutical processing equipment.
♦ Automotive and aerospace: With solid strength, it is used for exhaust systems, fasteners, structural components, and aerospace fittings.
♦ Petrochemical industry: It is employed in refining equipment, heat exchangers, pressure vessels, and piping systems.
♦ Oil and gas: 316 stainless steel is employed in pipelines, storage tanks, valves, and other equipment.
♦ Heat exchangers and condensers
♦ Architectural applications: It is used in building facades, handrails, decorative elements, and interior design features.
♦ Water treatment: It is employed in piping systems, valves, water storage tanks, and filtration equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Are you a factory, manufacturer or trader?

A1. Foshan TOPSON Stainless Steel Co., Ltd. is a professional stainless steel factory with nearly 15 years of experience in stainless steel production. All our goods are dispatched directly from the TOPSON mill.

Q2. How can you ensure the quality of your product?

A2. Our stainless steel sheets and coils have to go through TWO/THREE checks in the manufacturing process, including production, cutting sheets (If requested) and packing.

Q3. Can you do any surface treatment?

A3: Sure. We have multiple advanced machines to make mirror finish (8K), No.4 finish (satin), hairline finish, vibration, colored (PVD or LIC), and so on. We can also work with some factories to make thick mirror plates, like 4mm or 5mm.

Q4. Is 316 stainless steel suitable for all temperature environments?

A4. No, 316 stainless steel is usually regarded as the “marine grade stainless steel”, but is not resistant to warm seawater. It is subject to pitting and crevice corrosion in warm chloride environments and to stress corrosion cracking above about 122°F (50°C).
