Stainless Steel 316L Pipe Fittings are made up of a lower carbon version of the 316 material. R.C. Metal Corporation is a leading supplier of these fittings in different sizes and types. There are different types such as the SA403 WP316L Elbow which is used to change the direction of a pipe line. The elbows come in different variations as well. The usual ones are the 90 degree elbows where the 45 degree ones and short radius and long radius versions are also available. The Stainless steel 316L Fittings have lower carbon than that of 316 grade. The 316L is already corrosion resistant with molybdenum in the composition. The low carbon content of the SS 316L pipe fittings make them less vulnerable for carbide precipitation while welding.

This allows for the fittings to be less prone to intergranular corrosion and localized corrosion. The ASTM A403 Grade WP316L Fittings are also resistant to chloride iron corrosion stress cracking. For this reason they are used in the sea water desalination, marine engineering and in sea water applications. There are food grade 316L Stainless Steel Pipe fittings that are used in food processing industries. The applications of the fittings range from petrochemicals to pharmaceuticals.
The Stainless steel 316l elbow is reduces the excerpted pressure onto the walls than the bends by gradually changing the direction of flow. There are different specifications of these fittings such as the ASME SA403 WP316l fittings which is a specification for forged and wrought pipe fittings for high pressure applications.
