Complete Guide on Stainless Steel 304L Forged Fittings

Fittings made of stainless steel 304L are used to connect pipe sections with other fluid control items such as pumps and valves to form pipelines. Stainless Steel 304L Pipe Fittings are commonly connected with metal pipes that transport fluids.

Forged stainless steel 304L fittings have a high carbon content. It makes the steel more suitable for use in situations involving high temperatures. These fittings are created by a process known as forging, which gives stainless steel the exact shape and size of a forged fitting.

High tensile strength, oxidation and corrosion resistance, workability, formability, and extended service life are all characteristics of these forged fittings. All of these characteristics aid Stainless Steel 304/ 304L/ 304H Forged Fittings in maintaining their qualities and withstanding high temperatures without being destroyed.

Applications and Uses forged stainless steel 304L fittings

  • Petrochemicals
  • Oil and Gas
  • Chemical Manufacturing
  • Power Plants
  • Industry of Energy
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Pulp and Paper
  • Food Processing
  • Aerospace
  • Refining

They are frequently employed in so many sectors because of all of these advantages. Because of its high temperature-carrying properties, it is employed in the oil and gas sector to prevent leakage and damage.

Our skilled staff thoroughly inspects these fittings to ensure that they are free of damage. These Stainless Steel Forged Fittings must pass a series of tests to demonstrate their effectiveness. They are neatly put into hardwood boxes and with adequate cartons after the test.

CORROSION RESISTANCE: The 18 to 19 per cent chromium in 304 alloys provides resistance to corrosion in oxidizing situations. The nickel content of 9 to 11 per cent in 304 alloys provides resistance to moderately strong organic acids. Although the 304, 304L, and 304H may be considered to perform equally in most corrosive environments, the lower carbon Alloy 304L may have a lower corrosion rate than the higher carbon Alloy 304. For usage in settings sufficiently corrosive to produce intergranular corrosion of welds and heat-affected zones on vulnerable metals, Alloy 304L is preferable.

HEAT RESISTANCE: Excellent oxidation resistance when used intermittently up to 1600°F and continuously up to 1690°F. If water corrosion resistance is necessary, continuous usage of 304 in the 800-1580°F range is not suggested. Grade 304L has a higher resistance to carbide precipitation and may be heated to the temperatures listed above.
