Stainless steel is not a single material but the name of a family of corrosion-resistant steels created by adding significant amounts of chromium to a steel alloy. Many different stainless steel alloys exist, commonly referred to by the grade numbers – e.g. 304, 316L which determine the mechanical and corrosion resistance.
The corrosion resistance and durability of Stainless steel make it an ideal choice for process industries and a wide range of architectural applications.
Stainless steel is a challenging material to metal spin due to its work-hardening properties, so careful attention to the choice of material grades, thickness and design parameters are needed before implementing a design. Spun stainless steel is used extensively for process hoppers, mixing bowls and chemical tanks.
