Stainless Steel Pipe

Stainless steel pipe is largely used in piping systems to transport fluids or gasses. These pipes are manufactured from a steel alloy containing nickel and chromium, which give stainless steel its corrosion-resistant properties. Stainless steel pipe resists oxidation, making it a low-maintenance solution suitable for high-temperature and chemical applications. Because this material is easily cleaned and sanitized, stainless steel pipe is also suitable for food, beverages, and pharmaceutical applications. 

Stainless steel pipe is commonly manufactured using a welding process or extrusion. The welding process involves shaping steel into a tube shape and then welding the seams together to hold the shape. Extrusion creates a seamless product and heats a steel rod and then pierces it through the middle to create a pipe. Stainless pipes are used extensively in plumbing systems for transporting water in residential and commercial buildings. Their corrosion resistance ensures clean water delivery and prevents contamination. These pipes are also employed in structural applications where strength and corrosion resistance are critical.

Stainless steel is highly versatile and can be used for a range of indoor and outdoor applications. Using stainless materials for your pipe project provides several advantages, including:

  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Long-lasting
  • Low-maintenance
  • Scratch resistant
  • Handles high flow rates
  • Easy to machine
  • Easy to sanitize
  • Superior corrosion resistance
  • Recyclable, environmentally-friendly material 

Stainless pipes come in different shapes and sizes, including round, square, and rectangular, with varying thicknesses and diameters.
