Stainless Steel Process Equipment
Types of Stainless Steel Process Equipment
There are two main grades – grade 304 and grade 316. Grade 304 is known for its high tensile strength of roughly 621 MPa (90 ksi). Grade 316 stainless steel also has a tensile strength of 579 MPs (84 ksi), making the two grades reasonably similar in this regard.
They also both have a high maximum operating temperature. Grade 304 has a maximum temperature of 870°C (1598°F) and Grade 316 has a maximum of 800°C (1472°F).
When comparing 304 vs. 316 stainless steel, one major difference is resistance to chlorides such as salt. Grade 316 is more resistant to the elements, making it a more desirable stainless steel for things like maritime applications.
