Features and Uses of Stainless Steel Pipes

Stainless steel pipes are hollow cylindrical or tubular sections frequently used for the purpose of moving fluids. These can also be used in architectural applications. On the other hand, pipe fittings are objects that are known for holding the pipes that complete the plumbing system in any structural application. Pipe fittings enhance the functionality of the pipes and help in the direct flow of liquid, steam and gaseous products. There are several stainless steel pipe suppliers in South Africa. The following are some of the common types of pipe fittings:

  • Extension/joint fittings: Examples of this category are locknuts, couplings, offsets and unions. These are designed to connect or extend the pipes.
  • Shutoff fittings: These are used to plug off the end of the pipes
  • Directional fittings: These are designed to change the directions of pipes

 

The following are the characteristics of stainless steel pipes:

These are categorised as alloys of chromium and steel and hence are quite durable and strong metals. Chromium gives stainless steel the property of corrosion resistance. Due to this highly beneficial property, stainless steel pipes and fittings are highly durable, require low maintenance, are easy to clean and can withstand the harshest conditions for the long periods of time. As stainless steel pipes are extremely lightweight and can be recycled easily, it is the ideal metal to cater to piping requirements. The shapes of the pipes can be crafted as per your preferences.

Stainless steel pipes have an extensive range of commercial applications in domestic regions, offices and industrial projects. These pipes and fittings serve highly beneficial purposes in areas which need a high level of resistance to withstand internal and external factors. Due to the high resistance against corrosion and heat, stainless steel pipes are equipped to handle this stress and perform well under the toughest conditions.

The following are some of the common industrial, indoor and outdoor applications of stainless steel pipes and fittings:

  • Residential and commercial buildings: The stainless steel pipes are used in the supply and exhaust systems, water plumbing systems, and in the manufacture of curtain rods.
  • Stainless steel pipes are used to transport materials like chemicals sulphur, oil and gas in various commercial industries.
  • Automotive industry: Stainless steel pipes are used to build the air and water flow systems of locomotive industries.
  • The pipes are used to manufacture sewerage systems, industrial water lines and water mains.
  • The pipes are used in heating, air conditioning and ventilation equipment.
  • Stainless steel pipes are also used in manufacturing industries and scaffolding applications.

Stainless steel pipes are available in a variety of diameters and sizes. There are various types of stainless steel currently available in the market. Due to consistent innovation and high levels of effectiveness, these have become an essential part of people’s daily lives. Stainless steel pipes have huge commercial demand as these are cost-effective and provide an ideal solution in the manufacturing and processing of various industrial products.
