Stainless Steel Pipe Supplier

stainless steel grades and applications

From transporting precious natural resources to processing the solids and liquids people consume every day, stainless steel pipe plays a pivotal societal role. Texas Alloys & Tool can deliver this high-performance metal alloy in various grades, profiles, sizes, and lengths to suit your construction, manufacturing, or fabrication needs. 

What is stainless steel pipe? 

Stainless steel pipe is an iron-and-chromium alloy with a hollow shaft. The chromium content forms an oxide film on the material’s surface, and it resists oxidation. While performance characteristics vary by grade, typical attributes of stainless steel pipe include: 

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Fire and heat resistance
  • Easy to clean
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Easy to fabricate
  • Exceptional aesthetic value
  • Recyclable

Benefits of Stainless Steel Pipe

Stainless steel pipe is a low-maintenance piping solution for corrosive, high temperature, and harsh chemical environments. It’s perfect for a variety of industries.

  • Architecture
  • Oil & Gas
  • Machine Shops
  • Metal Fabricators
  • Power Plants
  • Maintenance Departments
  • Food Processing 
  • Power Generation
  • Aerospace 

Easy to clean and sanitize, stainless steel pipe is often used to transport and process food, beverage, and pharmaceutical products. 

Your Stainless Steel Piping Source

Texas Alloys & Tool carries a wide range of stainless steel pipe products, enabling us to quickly and affordably meet client material needs. Whether you want aesthetic appeal, protection against harsh conditions, or a high strength-to-weight ratio, we can deliver the best stainless steel pipe for your project. 

Stainless Steel Sanitary Pipe

This piping type is resistant to corrosion, doesn’t tarnish, and is easy to clean. It’s commonly used for contact with food and sensitive products, or when sanitation is a high priority. 

Stainless Steel Mechanical Pipe

Ideal for the manufacture of stainless steel pipe fittings, cylinders, bearings, and other hollow formed parts. It’s strong and resists corrosion and chemical degradation. 

Stainless Steel Aircraft Pipe

These piping grades are perfect for applications that need strength and resistance to corrosion and heat in a lightweight package. They can be work work-hardened or welded.

Industry-Leading Grade Selection 

Material selection is one of the most significant decisions for any project. The performance characteristics of materials are critical to an application’s long-term success. Texas Alloys & Tool carries stainless steel piping in a variety of grades. 

Available Grades
Stainless Steel
303 Stainless Steel Type 303 is a non-magnetic, austenitic stainless steel grade. It’s easy to fabricate and offers outstanding resistance to heat and oxidation when exposed to temperatures up to 760 degrees Celsius. Quote »
304/304L Stainless Steel The most common grade of stainless steel pipe. It's corrorsion-resistant and develops a high strength with cold working.  Quote »
310 Stainless Steel A low-carbon austenitic stainless steel type. It has superb corrosion resistance and isn’t prone to thermal fatigue or cyclic heating. It exhibits good strength in temperatures up to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit. Quote »
316/316L Stainless Steel A stainless steel grade that features a heightened amount of molybdenum. It offers increased resistance to chloride corrosion. Quote »
Alloy 20 Stainless Steel Also called Carpenter® 20 and Incoloy® 20, this is an austenitic nickel-iron-chromium alloy. Performance characteristics include resistance to corrosion, crevice corrosion, and pitting. Quote »
416 Stainless Steel A highly machinable, low-cost martensitic stainless steel. It offers resistance to freshwater, acids, alkalis, and air. It’s less resistant to corrosion than austenitic steels. Quote »
440 Stainless Steel Type 440 Stainless Steel is a hardenable high-carbon chromium steel. It exhibits good corrosion and abrasion resistance. Quote »
630 Stainless Steel A corrosion-resistant stainless steel grade that’s magnetic and easily weldable. It loses some toughness at higher temperatures. Quote »
17-4 Stainless Steel 17-4 PH, also known as UNS S17400, is a martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel. It offers good corrosion resistance and high strength. Quote »
