Stainless steel is that, the ‛L’ series has 0.03% maximum carbon content. This lower carbon level is preferred for welding conditions. Low carbon levels increase the resistance to inter granular corrosion (IGC). 316L is variant established to overcome the problem occurred in earlier days in stainless steel application. Alloy 317L is the modified version of 316L which has high strength and corrosion resistance. SS 317L SEAMLESS PIPE contains 3.0% to 4.0% of molybdenum. It has superior resistance to many organic and inorganic chemicals.
Alloy 317L is a molybdenum containing, low carbon austenitic stainless steel with increased additions of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum for better corrosion resistance and increased resistance to chemical attack for sulfurous, acetic, formic, citric, and tartaric acids. These are applicable in various areas such as paper pulp machinery, chemical processing & petrochemical equipment, condensers in fossils, nuclear fuelled power generation stations, textile equipments etc. Reliable pipes & tubes ltd. is leading 317L stainless steel tube manufacturers in India. As their name ‘Reliable’ their manufactured products are also reliable and affordable. They have been honoured with ISO 9001:2008 certification for quality compliance. They have increased their production capacity by 20%. They have become primal choice of their clients due to their good product quality, service, competitive price, modern technologies and skilled workforce.
As the stainless steel chemical changes by the effect of mechanical properties, and corrosion and heat resistance the steel properties also changes. This affects the performance of the steel material differing applications and ultimately the price. A standard 316l chromium-nickel stainless steel tube containing 2.0% molybdenum is less expensive than 317l stainless steel tube which contains the higher molybdenum which is 3 to 4% but it is high in strength and corrosion resistance than the 316L stainless steel tube.
