Difference between carbon steel pipe fittings and stainless steel pipe fittings

Different fittings with different materials, the main difference between carbon steel pipe fittings and stainless steel pipe fittings is steel materials, the stainless steel belongs to alloy steel.

What is Pipe fitting?
Pipe fitting

Pipe fitting is work that involves the installation or repair of pipes or tubes. Pipes and tubes are necessary for a wide range of reasons.

Carbon steel and stainless steel because of different ingredients, produced refined softness difference, while carbon steel are many types. Stainless steel pipe fittings from a sense that will not rust, carbon steel rust if not on anti-rust oil or painting. Carbon steel pipe fittings can do the larger size of the finished product.

Stainless steel tube pieces contained in the chemical composition of the surface of the pipe will remain for a long time will not rust, is not easy to be corroded. Stainless steel pipe fittings material to keep the tube does not produce the quality problems, and to ensure that the service life of the pipe fittings, pipe fittings in use can play an important role in Stainless steel of a different type, and contain different ingredients, different types of stainless steel have properties are also different.
