Uses of Stainless Steel 316 Round Bar

Stainless Steel 316

Belonging to series 300, SS 316 has the same contents as other grades however with a slight difference. The chromium is between 16.5-18.5%, Carbon is 0.07%, Nickel is 10-13%, Molybdenum is 2-2.5%. The Ultimate Tensile Strength is 50000-70000 MPa at 20°C, and the Yielding Strength is 20000 MPa at 20°C. The Molybdenum content in SS316 is more so that makes it much more resistant to pitting and corrosion and the fluctuating temperature would have no effects on SS 316. This grade of Stainless steel is used mostly for applications after the alloy itself.

Round Bars

Stainless Steel Round Bars have the size of 5mm to 500mm with a diameter ranging from 0.1mm to 100mm and length can be from 100mm to 1300mm and beyond. The general shape of bars is Round Bars, Square Bars, Flat Bars, Threaded Bars, Hollow Bars, Hexagonal Bars, Triangular Bars. These round bars are generally used to make other stainless steel products for example small pipe fittings, small tools, instruments, etc. the round bars are also used to make pipes and tubes. The Stainless Steel round bars are optimum bars because of the properties of many metals used to make the alloy.


Applications of Stainless Steel 316 Bars

Because of its high corrosion resistance, the alloy is commonly used in plants and businesses. The Petroleum Refinery uses Stainless Steel round bars for making it into pipes and using it to convey the crude oil to the plant for converting it. The Boilers use this alloy for outer covering because it can withstand steam and fluids or any substance. Cooling towers also use this alloy because of its resistance against water and steam for the very same reason it is also used in making steam exhausts. The Electric Generation plants use this alloy grade because it is compatible with electricity. Paper Production, Waste Treatment, Pharmaceutical, and Food Processing equipment make use of Stainless Steel in all shapes and sizes. The Food and Beverage industry also uses pipes made of SS 316 round bars for they are able to resist any reaction to edibles.
