Stainless steel tube and pipe application

Stainless steel tubes are named for ordinary steel pipes. Because of their special corrosion resistance, stainless steel is called stainless steel pipe. Because of its good stainless properties, stainless steel tubes are used in a wide range of applications. We are often seen in Petrochemical Field, Chemical Industry Field, Electric Power Field, Nuclear Power Field, Automotive Field, Ship Field, Others Fields.



1.Petrochemical Field:
When stainless steel tubes are used in the petrochemical industry, they are mainly used in chemical pipeline transportation systems, such as high-pressure boiler tubes, petroleum piping, petroleum cracking tubes, gas or liquid conveying pipes, heat exchange tubes, etc., requiring stainless steel pipes under high temperature and high pressure. Wet, acid service should have very good performance. The petroleum and petrochemical industry is the pillar industry of the national economy, and it plays a pivotal role in the national economy. Therefore, it will receive more and more attention in the future petrochemical industry.


2, Chemical Industry Field

Stainless steel tubes are used in a wide range of Chemical Industry Fields. Often simple stainless steel tubes are used for chemical pipeline transportation, chemical equipment parts, and general chemical plants choose TP321 material (1CR18NI9TI) when selecting stainless steel tubes. The specifications range from 89MM to 426MM, mainly based on pressure fluid pipelines. Before the 1980s, our country mainly imported, until the 1990s, China's production technology gradually matured. At present, most of the materials are produced in China and a large part of it is exported to other parts of the world.


3, Electric Power Field
Stainless steel pipes are also widely used in Electric Power Field applications. It is often used in various types of thermal power stations, hydropower stations, nuclear power plants. When used in power stations, it is divided into two parts. The first part is used for various high-temperature and high-pressure wastewater inside the power station, the transportation of exhaust gas, and the second part is used for underground wastewater. emission. China is a big power country. Every year, new power plants have a huge demand for stainless steel pipes.


4, Nuclear Power Field
Stainless steel pipes are used in Nuclear Power Field. Nuclear island systems require a large number of stainless steel tubes. Nuclear islands are the general term for nuclear reactors and reactor-related systems in nuclear power plant containment, including nuclear steam supply systems, containment spray systems, and auxiliary systems. System, etc. It is expected that stainless steel pipes for nuclear power equipment will usher in good development opportunities in the next five years. In the PWR nuclear power plant materials, a large number of high-performance steel pipes, forgings, pipe fittings and other materials are required, and there are many types of materials involved, such as alloy steel, stainless steel, zirconium alloy, titanium alloy, and nickel-based alloy.


5, Automotive Field
Stainless steel pipes are used in automobile manufacturing and are mostly used for automobile exhaust emissions. In 2017, China's automobile production was 290,150,400 units, an increase of 3.19% year-on-year; in 2017, China's automobile sales reached 2,887,900 units, a year-on-year increase of 3.04%. In 2017, China's automobile production and sales increased by over 3% year-on-year, and the growth rate dropped by 11.27 percentage points and 10.61 percentage points from the same period of the previous year. As the demand for automobiles increases, so does the demand for stainless steel tubes for automobiles in automobile manufacturing.


6,Ship Field
Shipbuilding requires a very large number of stainless steel materials, such as steel, round steel, angle steel, stainless steel pipes, etc. Stainless steel tubes are mostly used for transporting beverages, as well as garbage discharges, railings, etc. when used in shipbuilding. The rapid growth of China's foreign trade has also provided a good development opportunity for the shipbuilding industry. China's shipbuilding industry is expected to become one of the most internationally competitive industries.


7, Others Fields

The application of stainless steel tubes in Others Fields has been introduced above. Because of its good stainless properties and corrosion resistance, stainless steel tubes have been used in industry. With the improvement of people's living standards, stainless steel tubes are also increasingly used. In life, such as railings, drinking water pipes, garbage discharge, waste water pipes, etc.
