Why 316/316L stainless steel? Why austenitic and not ferritic stainless steel?
300 series stainless steel (austenitic) has much higher chromium and nickel content than 400 series (ferritic) stainless steel in its material composition.
Gasmaster Industries boilers uses ONLY 316/316L grades of stainless steel in its heat exchangers. 316/316L stainless steel is a product which has much higher resistance to corrosion than the 400 series of stainless steel. The ‘L’ designation means that the product has low carbon content which results in the continuity of its corrosion resistance properties after welding. The unstinting requirement for quality material comes with a heavy premium. 316/316L stainless steel is twice as expensive as 400 series material.
Constructed entirely of high grade stainless steel, this heat exchanger is a state of art , worldwide patented technology. The ingenious design allows for counter flow heat exchange resulting in the highest thermal efficiencies. The heat exchanger is thermal shock proof and is backed by the best warranty in the industry. 316L Stainless Steel heat exchanger ensures longevity and reliable operation. This award winning heat exchanger is a great choice for process application where food grade Stainless Steel is preferred. The compact footprint makes installation quick and easy.
