Stainless Steel Manifolds - General Information

The many unique values provided by stainless steel make it a powerful candidate in materials selection. Engineers, specifiers and designers often underestimate or overlook these values because of what is viewed as the higher initial cost of stainless steel. However, over the total life of a project, stainless is often the best value option. Select a PSI level below. 3000 psi 5000psi 7000psi

What is Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by  weight. It is this addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion resisting properties. The chromium content of the steel allows the formation of a rough, adherent, invisible, corrosion-resisting chromium oxide film on the steel surface. If damaged mechanically or chemically, this film is self-healing, providing that oxygen, even in very small amounts, is present. The corrosion resistance and other useful properties  of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen..
