Stainless Steel 304 (AISI)
304 stainless steel is the most common stainless steel. The steel contains both chromium (usually 18%) and nickel (usually 8%) metals as the main non-iron constituents. It is an austenite steel. It is not very electrically or thermally conductive, and is non-magnetic. It has a higher corrosion resistance than regular steel and is widely used because of the ease in which it is formed into various shapes.
Stainless Steel 316 (AISI)
Type 316—the second most common grade (after 304); alloy addition of molybdenum prevents specific forms of corrosion. It is also known for its increased resistance to chloride corrosion compared to type 304.
Stainless Steel 316L (AISI)
Type 316L—is an extra low carbon grade of 316, generally used in the fabrication of pressure vessels for boiling water reactors, due to its high resistance to corrosion. It is immune to grain boundary carbide precipitation. This makes it suited to use in welded components.
3-A Sanitary Standards
An independent, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to advancing hygienic equipment design for the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.
Alloy 904L is a low carbon high alloy austenitic stainless steel which is widely used in applications where the corrosion properties of AISI 316L are not adequate. The addition of copper to this grade gives it corrosion resistant properties superior to the conventional chrome nickel stainless steels, in particular to sulphuric, phosphoric and acetic acids. It also has a high resistance to pitting in chloride solutions, a high resistance to both crevice and stress corrosion cracking.
Hastelloy Alloy 22
The predominant alloying ingredient is nickel. The primary function of the Hastelloy super alloys is that of effective survival under high-temperature, high-stress service in a moderately to severely corrosive, and/or erosion-prone environment, including the pressure vessels, chemical reactors, distillation equipment, and pipes and valves in chemical industry.
