Stainless steel heat exchange tube is a kind of tube with a wide range of applications. It has good corrosion resistance and anti-fouling properties, so it is very popular among people. Let’s talk about which materials are commonly used in stainless steel heat exchange tubes.
Zhejiang Mingxin Stainless Steel Co., Ltd. is a modern stainless steel pipeline system manufacturing enterprise integrating scientific research, production and sales. The company adopts advanced, efficient and mature production management mode. Leading materials for the production of high-quality stainless steel, to provide reliable and safe stainless steel pipes and pipe fittings for global users.
The two most common types are 304 stainless steel and 304L stainless steel. The advantages of these two stainless steel materials are different.
304 stainless steel is widely used in stainless steel heat exchange tubes. Its core function is to transfer the heat generated by the gas. The better the thermal conductivity, the better the heat exchange effect. 304 stainless steel has excellent thermal conductivity. In addition, the stainless steel heat exchange tube itself is difficult to process, and the internal structure and welding process requirements are high. Therefore, if you are not careful during the process, it will affect the quality of the whole machine, and the process is risky. 304 stainless steel can be used for hot processing such as stamping and bending. And there will be no heat treatment hardening phenomenon.
340L stainless steel has excellent weldability, and can maintain excellent intergranular corrosion resistance after welding and stress relief, and its thermal shock resistance is also higher than that of 304 stainless steel, making the quality of the whole machine more stable and reliable.
