Why is Stainless steel 310 tube suitable for kiln?
Stainless steel 310 tube is an austenitic stainless steel with a medium carbon content. The chemical composition includes manganese, silicon, phosphorus, sulfur, chromium and nickel. This provides excellent mechanical properties such as high tensile strength of 520MPa, high hardness, elongation and high yield strength of 205MPa.
Stainless steel 310 tube is also highly conductive. The thermal conductivity is 14.2 at 100 degrees Celsius, and the melting range is above 1400-1500 degrees Celsius. All of these properties make 310 material highly resistant to heat, wear and corrosion, depending on its operating temperature. Since furnaces are one of the hottest elements in the industry, 310 tubing is well suited for these applications.
