304 / 304L Tube

304 / 304L Tube

Characteristics

304 / 304L stainless steel tube is a cost-effective tube used for both structural and pressure applications. It is available as seamless, for pressure applications, and welded, for structural applications.  304 alloys exhibit high corrosion resistance, high strength, high temperature resistance and high workability. In addition, they are easy to sanitize and sterilize. Higher carbon levels in 304L decrease the weldability of the alloy.

Applications

Seamless 304 / 304L stainless tube is used for pressure operations such as moving liquids and gases in processing operations in the water treatment, chemical, petrochemical, food processing, diary  and marine industries. Welded 304 tube is used as hand rails, legs for office, kitchen, and hospital equipment and as architectural supports.
