The 316 Nipple Stainless Steel nipple is a tough austenitic steel grade generally used in the appliance industry. It is a corrosion resistant nipple typically used for tubing and connections. They are built into applications such as kitchen sinks and oven parts along with many others. Most notably, 316 nipples are used in surgical equipment. The equipment uses 316 stainless steel nipples as connections or tubing within the framework as its dependable.
The Stainless Steel Nipple and it’s high resistance to corrosion is why any industry that handles water uses this type of nipple. By having such a trustworthy nipple, you never have to worry about it failing in certain applications. If you do not use a high resistance to corrosion nipple like this one, you are just asking for trouble.
The 316H grade is made to work in higher temperatures. This allows them to thrive in appliances such as microwaves and ovens. Both 316 and 316L types have composition and properties that comply with both steel types. The 316 grades, especially 316L as it contains low carbon, are great for welding and are often referred to as “marine grade” stainless steel.
316 stainless steel nipples are known to have a nickel content, including molybdenum, which provides better corrosion resistance. Many industries use 316 nipples such as the food industry, surgical equipment, pharmaceutical, and more. In addition, Detroit Nipple Works use 316 stainless steel for fabrication. Also, we do work with the other grades of stainless steel and other materials used throughout many industries like agriculture, health, food, medical equipment, manufacturing, heating, cooling, and many more applications.

Detroit Nipple Works has a huge announcement for you this summer ! We’ve just purchased new machinery and equipment that will double our capacity for filling high volume, high quality, special finish or custom application orders for steel pipe nipples.
Detroit Nipple Works specializes in the big stuff! As you may be aware, we do specialize in production and sales of products that are sometimes unique.

Oil and natural gas exploration and production for example. With this upgrade, we can produce more and fill orders faster than before.
Using 4″ to 12″ pipe in 304 or 316 stainless steel pipe presents no problem for us. Our machine is newer and more advanced, giving us the ability to keep up with Oil or Natural Gas industry contractors working in still high producing states like Texas and Colorado. This, of course, increases our capacity for 4 inches to 12-inch pipe nipples using other types of steel and a variety of materials.
We produce and sell a wide pipe and fittings in a wide variety of finishes. We recently filled a large special order of 316 stainless steel pipe nipples from California. Orders for stainless steel nipples on specialized finishes like; cold rolled or hot rolled, heat treated, pickled, oiled, pinch passed are not uncommon. This process is done at the mill as it is very caustic and requires a special industry and EPA approved environment.
