Stainless Steel Plate Property to Make Tanks
Stainless steel tanks are either made of 304 stainless steel or 316L to meet sanitary using degrees because we mainly provide tanks for pharmaceutical, food, beverage, nutrients and body care products. 316L is more expensive than 304 stainless steel material. The blow table gives a general idea of the difference between the 304 and 316L. And the difference among different country standards.
To skip the concept of what is 304 and what is 316L and their general mechanical properties can be compared. A major difference of 316L stainless steel is that it tends to be more anti-corrosive(due to its higher percentage of the element of nickels). Its ability to resist acids and chlorides is ideal for chemical processing and reaction. If your product is mild acid or of little salt content, 304 material is enough when you order stainless steel tanks.
