A Stainless Steel Boiler Tube refers to a type of pipe that is specifically designed and constructed to withstand high pressure and temperature. These tubes are used in a variety of heat exchange processes, notably in boilers and superheaters. The term “boiler tube” generally refers to a small-diameter tube that can withstand high pressures and temperatures, and transport steam and other high-temperature fluids.
The stainless steel used in these tubes is typically a high-quality grade that can withstand the extreme conditions inside a boiler. The common grades of stainless steel used for boiler tubes include 304, 316, and sometimes higher alloy stainless steels depending on the temperature and pressure conditions. Each grade offers a different level of corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, and cost.
