It depends on the type of stainless steel. Stainless steels come in various compositions and are identified by numbers and letters. Electrodes should be chosen that match these. For example when welding 316 stainless use type 316 electrodes. In a lot of situations you can safely use the next higher number. 304 stainless can be welded with 308 electrodes, 308 stainless with 310 electrodes. 309 electrodes are generally used to weld stainless to carbon steel.
stainless steel has a high resistance to oxidization which causes rust. stainless is used in water pumps and more items in the kitchen. carbon steel is stronger but not used in a widely because it does produce rust at a rapid pace. also the tensil strenght and elasticity of stainless is better for industrial applications.
What causes rust stains on the outside of an oil heat chimney that already has an independtly confirmed stainless steel sleeve and cap?
To manufacture the stainless steel copper bottom utensils with 3% of copper deposit at the bottom of utensil & the grade of stainless steel is J -5 of 22 gauge. What would be the manufacturing cost per kg ? Shall I get the costing analysis of manufacturing process to know this process better. What kind of stainless steel grade have to be used to get best resuts? Ravikumar
Stainless steel fasteners are made of steel that has been mixed with at least a ten percent compound of chromium, and possibly other metals, so that the steel doesn't rust or corrode. This makes stainless steel fasteners great for outdoor conditions, where there is a lot of water or moisture. Especially if you are building something that supports a substantial amount of weight, such as humans, you will need to use stainless steel fasteners. Steel…
Heckler & Koch pistols with stainless steel slides have since been discontinued and as such tend to fetch relatively high prices on the used market when compared to their parkerized counterparts. A USP fullsize or USP Compact chambered in .45 ACP with a stainless steel slide can easily fetch $850 to $1,000 in the used market.
In making a chemical reactor out of stainless steel, you'd get good resistance to corrosion. You'd also get the durability and toughness that something like, say, glass, could not provide. As regards a nuclear ractor, there is a lot of stainless steel used in nuclear reactor plumbing to resist corrosion. And it is cheaper than, say, the zircaloy that is used in the core itself.
