Stainless Steel 316 Pipe Fittings are made up of the molybdenum added chromium nickel austenitic stainless steel. R.C. Metal Corporation is a leading manufacturer of the ASTM A403 WP316 Elbow and other various types of the fittings. The 4% molybdenum addition in the composition provides extra corrosion resistance to the Stainless Steel 316 fittings. They are especially corrosion resistant to chloride ion corrosion stress cracking. So the fittings are much suitable for the marine and sea water applications.

The 316 Stainless Steel Elbows are also used in food grade applications and the chemical applications. The strength of the material is similar to that of 304 grade stainless steel with 205MPa minimum yield strength and 515MPa minimum tensile strength. The ASTM A403 Grade WP316 Fittings are wrought products and range from 1/16 inches to 2 inches in outer diameter sizes. The material also comes in various wall thicknesses and pressure classes.
The 316 Stainless Steel Weld fittings can operate up to 870 degrees Celsius temperatures. The material has manganese, silicon, carbon, sulfur and nitrogen in the composition as well. The applications of the SS 316 pipe fittings can be seen in the petroleum, oil and gas, petrochemical, boiler, heat exchanger and condenser components as well. The ASTM A403 WP316 Buttweld pipe fittings also come in lower carbon versions as the 316L fittings. Please feel free to inquire us on any different types of the 316 Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings and their pricing.
