Stainless steel tube is a kind of economical cross-section steel. It is an important product in the iron and steel industry. It can be widely used in life decoration and industry. Many people on the market use it to make stair railings, window guards, railings, furniture, etc. In which industries are stainless steel tubes used? Let's take a look together.


Here is the content list:

  1. Auto industry.

  2. The petrochemical industry includes the fertilizer industry.

  3. Transportation of fluids such as water and gas.

  4. Equipment manufacturing and maintenance.

  5. Aerospace Engineering.


Auto industry.


Stainless steel tubes are mainly used in the exhaust system, which accounts for more than 1/2 of the total amount of stainless steel in automobiles, and 80% is ferric stainless steel. The exhaust gas generated by the automobile engine flows out of the muffler through the exhaust gas intake tube, front tube, hose, converter, and center tube. Commonly used steel grades for exhaust systems are 409L, 436L, etc. Automobile mufflers mainly use stainless steel welded tubes. According to calculations, stainless steel tubes used in automobiles account for about 1.5% of the entire downstream consumption of stainless steel tubes, and the use ratio of stainless steel seamless tubes and welded tubes is about 2:1.


The petrochemical industry includes the fertilizer industry.


There is a huge demand for stainless steel tubes. The industry mainly uses stainless steel seamless tubes. The specifications include: 304, 321, 316, 316L, 347, 317L, etc. The outer diameter is about ¢18-¢610, and the wall thickness is 6mm-50mm Around (usually select medium and low pressure conveying tubes with specifications above Φ159mm), the specific application areas are furnace tubes, material conveying tubes, heat exchange tubes, etc.


Transportation of fluids such as water and gas.


Stainless steel tubes and their water delivery equipment are the most advanced basic water purification materials in the world today. They have strong anti-corrosion performance. Cast iron tubes, carbon steel tubes, plastic tubes, etc. cannot be compared with them.

Stainless steel tubes are the best choice for the water industry such as water preparation, storage, transportation, purification, regeneration, and desalination. The annual demand is about 25,000 tons.


Equipment manufacturing and maintenance.


The annual consumption of stainless steel pipes is more than 20,000 tons. This type of industry mainly uses sanitary or antibacterial grade stainless steel pipes. The sanitary seamless tube made of imported SUS304 and 316L can meet the special requirements of various media in the food and bio-pharmaceutical fields. Antibacterial stainless steel has the advantages of stainless steel and good antibacterial performance. The demand for kitchen equipment, workbenches and utensils in the food industry, medical equipment, tableware and towel holders in daily life, and brackets for refrigerated cabinets is increasing.


Aerospace Engineering.


The scope of application of stainless steel tubes in the national economy is extremely wide. Because the steel tube has a hollow section, it is most suitable as a tube line for liquid, gas, and solid transportation. At the same time, compared with round steel of the same weight, the steel tube has a large section coefficient and high bending and torsion strength, so it has become a variety of machinery and building structures. Important material on the site. Structures and parts made of stainless steel tubes have a larger section modulus than solid parts under the same weight. With the development of new technologies such as atomic energy, rockets, missiles, and aerospace industries, stainless steel tubes have become more and more important in the defense industry, science and technology, and economic construction.


Foshan TaiYuDa Steel Group Co., Ltd. conducts many different tests on the stainless steel tube for connection before it leaves the factory, and the quality qualification rate is guaranteed. If you are in the stainless steel tube business, you can consider our cost-effective products.
