304 Stainless Steel vs. 316 Stainless Steel

304 Stainless Steel 

304 Stainless Steel is able to be welded and is the most commonly used stainless tubing across a variety of industries. T-304 is also malleable in the proper manner and has good corrosion resistance, but is not recommended for saltwater environment use. When properly maintained or reused, this form of steel offers strength, hardiness, corrosion resistance, and workability. This material is popular for use in industrial applications like machinery equipment and parts.

316 Stainless Steel

316 Stainless Steel Tubing also known as marine-grade stainless steel, is similar to T-304 in the aspects that it is also malleable and can be easily welded. The difference is that T-316 is recommended for applications that could face corrosive environments due to its inclusion of the element molybdenum, which gives this material a far superior corrosion resistance compared to other stainless steel grades. It is more commonly picked to use in saltwater and marine applications, and surgical equipment.

Welded vs. Seamless

The difference that makes a stainless steel tube welded or seamless is the way they are manufactured. Welded tubing comes from a strip of metal and is welded to make a tube while seamless tubing is made by extruding the steel from a bar of metal and then drawing it through a die to make the tubing.

These two processes lead the way for the nitty-gritty differences of these materials.

An advantage of the welded tubing option is that it’s normally the more cost efficient option when compared to the seamless option. Welded tubing is typically more cost effective because it’s less resistant to corrosion due to degradation that happens when welding all of the elements of steel together. Welded tubing is also more easily accessible because of not having to be drawn and annealed as much as seamless tubing.

An advantage of seamless tubing is its working pressure. There is a 20% increase in working pressure when you choose the same material and size in seamless tubing. Another advantage may be that it’s sometimes classified by users as the higher integrity product because there is no weld seam which could be viewed as a potential weak spot on welded tubing. Seamless tubing is often deemed more appropriate for critical applications.
