Stainless Steel Nipples – Characteristics

Stainless steel nipples do not stain, rust, or corrode the way standard steel ones do. There are different grades of stainless steel that have an impact on the amount of resistance to corrosion and heat. In addition, stainless steel is different from carbon steel, determined by the amount of chromium within.

Choose For Your Application

Stainless Steel Nipples are high-quality stainless steel fittings that are perfect for low-pressure applications where you need corrosion resistance in water, oil, and gas. Stainless Steel Fittings have pressure ratings. These ratings are 150 psi for water, oil, and gas, and meet ANSI B 16.3 and MSS-SP114. Type 316 material has a higher corrosion and heat resistance than type 304 material. In addition, all connections are NPT threaded. Custom sizes can be specially ordered. Premium Quality Steel Nipples and Stainless Steel Fittings and Valves are consistent and maintain high quality. Popular applications use 304 and 316 Steel Nipples.

In addition to the nipples, Detroit Nipple Works can provide you with stainless steel pipe fabrication.  Pipe fabrication is creating a predesigned pipe for various uses in different industries. A stainless steel fabricated pipe can be used in industries such as irrigation, aerospace, and plumbing to name a few. Of course, stainless steel is not the only type of fabricated pipes, there are other materials such as:

  • hydraulic pipe

Stainless Steel Nipples and Pipe

Stainless Steel Seamless Pipes

Stainless steel seamless pipes are pipes formed from steel rods which are then pushed on a mandrel to form the desired shape. Without the weld, the seamless pipe provides many benefits over the more traditional one. One of these benefits is the uniformity of the shape of the tube. While the weld may affect the shape or diameter of the tube, the seamless does not have that problem. Of course, another benefit is the overall strength of the seamless tube.

A welded tube will always be weaker along the actual weld than a seamless tube. Due to the strength of the seamless tube, the pressure rating is much higher than the welded counterpart. Stainless steel tubing seamless or not is usually much stronger than other materials. In addition to the tubing, Detroit Nipple Works offers a large variety of fittings, nipples, and valves as well.

Popular Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings and Nipples

As mentioned earlier, we make a variety of 304 and 316-grade stainless steel nipples. These types of nipples are generally used in different industries from plumbing to appliances and for more specialized uses. There are different grades of nipples. One is the 316H grade, this represents the ability to work with higher temperatures. The L grade is preferable for industries that require welding because it contains lower carbon.

When it comes to stainless steel, there are five common types. Precipitation hardening, duplex, martensitic, austenitic, and ferritic are the different types.
