Stainless Steel Pipe Flanges
Stainless steel pipe flanges are extremely corrosion resistant. Stainless steel offers good thermal and electrical conductivity, but these properties are comparatively weak relative to other metal materials. 304 stainless steel is a chromium-nickel material with very good corrosion resistance. Type 316 stainless steel has a higher nickel content than 304 stainless, plus molybdenum, for even greater corrosion resistance. Pipe flanges create an access point in a line for cleaning, inspection or modification.
