Stainless Steel (SS) is one of the most used component in pharmaceutical industry, there are many use of SS mainly manufacturing equipment, pipelines, holding tanks
Stainless Steel are considered for product contact or product non-contact because of its strength.
Generally product contact SS are made up of SS316 or SS316L and product non-contact are made up of SS304.
SS316 or SS316L are nonreactive, non-leaching, non-shredding in character
Below are the comparision between SS304 SS316 & SS316L
The difference in their structure is primarily the addition of molybdenum to 316 or 316L . Molybdenum further increases the corrosion resistance of the material, making it ideal for more acidic environments.Do you have any query on this Topic ? Post your query here !
