Application Advantages of Large Bore Thin Wall Sanitary Tube and Fittings
Large bore thin wall sanitary tube and fittings can be 100% recycled, and save water, reduce the transportation cost, reduce the heat loss, avoid pollution of sanitary fittings .
Large bore thin wall sanitary tube and fittings have longer service life. Know from the abroad analysis of stainless steel service condition, the service life of the stainless steel tubing can reach 100 years, at least in 70 years – as long as the life of the building.
The biggest advantage of large bore thin wall sanitary tube and fittings is its good corrosion resistance, it is the best of all kinds of pipes. Because stainless steel passivation with antioxidant effect, a layer of compact chromium oxide film Dr2O3 was happened in the surface, effective to prevent further oxidation reaction to occur.
The heat conductivity of large bore thin wall sanitary tube and fittings is 1/25 of copper tube, 1/4 of normal steel tube, it’s very suitable for the transport of hot water. Stainless steel 304 and stainless steel 316 are the most commonly used in water industry, they can meet the vast majority of water treatment and related conditions.
The tensile strength of large bore thin wall sanitary tube and fittings is 2 times than steel tubes, 8~10 times than plastic tubes. The strength of material determines whether the tube is strong and durable, safe and reliable. And the safety is the most important demand of building water supply. In the external force impact, there is just little possibility of stainless steel tube water leakage. The working pressure of building water supply system is generally greater than 0.6Mpa, it has higher requirement of the ability of pipe pressure. Thin wall thickness stainless steel tube has the excellent mechanical properties, able to withstand high water pressure, can reach more than 10Mpa, is especially suitable for high-rise buildings water supply.
Large bore thin wall sanitary tube and fittings generally won’t have local corrosion, the chloride content can be 200ppm of stainless steel 304, and the chloride content of stainless steel 316 can reach 1000ppm. This conclusion is based on the exposed experimental data and has already confirmed. The dilatation coefficient of stainless steel tubings are almost the same of copper tubes, but it’s 1.5 times of normal steel tubes. Compared to the normal tubes, the stainless steel tube has the characteristics of slower expansion and contraction.
