Stainless Steel Fittings


Stainless Steel Fittings

Stainless steel fittings are ideal for water supply networks due to their corrosion resistance. They are also used in situations where heat and chemical resistance is required, where cleanliness is important, and where lower maintenance costs are essential.

Advantages of Use

There are countless advantages to using stainless steel pipes and fittings, with the most obvious being corrosion resistance. Here are some of the other reasons why stainless steel fittings are used in water supply networks:

  • Stainless steel has a chromium component of about 10% which makes it resistant to corrosion. Chromium forms a thin, invisible layer on the surface of the steel when exposed to oxygen. This makes it impervious to water and air

  • The chromium content also helps stainless steel reform when it is scratched

  • Stainless steel fittings in higher grades can withstand extreme temperatures, whether they are extremely hot or cold environments

  • Stainless steel can also be fabricated easily, this is true for most grades

  • Due to quick fabrication, customers are able to get stainless steel fittings delivered promptly, preventing delays on projects

  • Due to being able to resist corrosion and temperature changes so well, stainless steel fittings can be made thinner, reducing material costs and making installation easier
