Stainless Steel Piping Systems
A stainless steel pipe system is the product of choice for carrying corrosive or sanitary fluids, slurries and gases, particularly where high pressures, high temperatures or corrosive environments are involved. As a result of the aesthetic properties of stainless steel, pipe is often use in architectural applications.
Stainless steel pipe can generally be defined as a heavy wall thickness tubing, with dimensions as specified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Pipe dimensions are nominated by outside diameter indicated by the NPS (imperial) or DN (metric) designator and sometimes referred to as the ‘nominal bore’ – and wall thickness, is determined by the schedule number. The standard ASME B36.19 covers these dimensions.
Stainless steel pipe and fittings are supplied in the annealed condition to facilitate fabrication and ensure best corrosion resistance. Atlas Steels can also supply stainless steel pipe with an abrasive polished finish suitable for architectural applications.
Welded stainless steel pipe is manufactured from 2B or HRAP stainless steel strip – formed (to shape) and longitudinally welded to completed pipe. With the exception of very large pipe welds are made without the addition of filler metal. Standard welded pipe is in nominal lengths of 6.0 to 6.1 metres.

- ASTM A358M – Austenitic (large diameter)
- ASTM A790M – Duplex.
Seamless stainless steel pipe is produced from hollow billets, which are then drawn across dies until they reach the final desired pipe size and wall thickness. Standard seamless pipe is in random lengths of 6.0 to 7.5 metres.
