Why choose 316L for stainless steel water pipes?



Stainless Steel Pipe Mill Manufacturer for Water Pipes:According to a report published by the World Health Organization, almost 1/10 of global diseases are related to water. So how can we drink water healthily? First of all, start with the selection of high-quality water pipes, and stainless steel water pipes are currently recognized as the best direct drinking water delivery pipes on the market.

However, when users buy stainless steel water pipes, many people do not understand why stainless steel water pipes should choose 316L. We made a comparison between 304 stainless steel and 316L stainless steel:


304 SS

316L SS


7.93 g/cm3


High temperature resistance



Normal use at -40℃~120℃


Good processing performance, high toughness, can resist chemical oxidation

With the addition of molybdenum (Mo) element, its corrosion resistance, temperature resistance and compressive strength have been greatly improved


Widely used in industry and furniture decoration industry and food industry                                                              

It is widely used in medical, food industry, clock accessories and other high-precision instrument accessories, pharmaceutical manufacturing industry and surgical instruments, etc.

To sum up:   

    First of all, 316 stainless steel contains Mo, which has better corrosion resistance than 304 stainless steel under high temperature environment, so in high temperature environment, engineers generally choose 316 material parts.

   Secondly, 316 mainly reduces the Cr content and increases Mo2%~3%. Therefore, its corrosion resistance is stronger than that of 304, and it is suitable for use in the environment of chemical industry and seawater. Similarly, the cost of 316 is also higher than 304. Generally, 316 is used in places with higher requirements to replace 304!

With the continuous improvement of Chinese residents' environmental awareness and health concept, more and more families need to choose higher-grade and healthier domestic water systems to meet their high-quality life needs. For our physical and mental health, it is recommended that you choose 316L stainless steel water pipe, which is currently the best direct drinking water delivery pipe. 316L is also one of the metal materials that can be used for medical purposes and implanted in the human body. The inner wall is not fouled, long-term use can purify the water source, can prevent the secondary pollution of the water pipe, and ensure the health of household drinking water.
