Industrial pipe fittings provide for smoother workflow and also help in reducing the cost of manufacture and working. Stainless steel alloy has many benefits for industrial processes. It has high strength, high resistance to corrosion and better fabric ability. Apart from these, the fittings made of stainless steel also provide benefits in the form of unique mechanical and chemical properties.

There is some difference between the properties of forged fittings that are made using different kinds of stainless steel. The 200 and 200 series are one of the 2 most widely used series that are used in industrial processes in the form of pipe and forged fittings. Because of their unique composition they have different properties.

Stainless steel 310 alloy and pipe fittings chemical composition

The 302 alloy and its pipe fittings are formed by combining different elements. It contains 26 % of chromium (maximum), 22 % of nickel (maximum), 2% manganese, 1.5% silicon, 0.25 % carbon, 0.045% phosphorus and also has 0.03% sulfur.

Stainless steel 202 alloy and pipe fittings chemical composition

The stainless steel 202 pipe fittings contain 18% chromium (maximum), 8.5 manganese (maximum), 5% of manganese (maximum) and 0.255 of nitrogen (maximum). Carbon and other metals/elements are added to balance the alloy.

Which one to choose

As we can see that the 310 alloy ahs got a higher proportion of nickel. Hence, the stainless steel 310 pipe fittings provide for better resistance to all kinds of corrosive environments and are efficient in oxidizing environments also. They can resist marine, a pittance, crevice and other general corrosions with ease and are used in petrochemical, oil, gas and in other industries. The 202 pipe fittings have more strength and are used in pharmaceutical, food, and other industries. The items made up of 202 alloys are also used extensively in other low corrosion indoor environments and are used in furniture, bins, etc.


All forms of pipe fittings of both the alloys are available in forms like tees, adapters, elbows, coupling, crosses, plugs, reducers, nipples, etc. the fittings are quality improved and sustain extensive and long term industrial processes with ease. Their usage is based on the industrial workflow environment which differs in different industries.

Online retail

The stainless steel 310 and stainless steel 202 pipe fittings are also retailed on the internet through the online web portals of suppliers and manufacturers. The online purchase is cost saving and the companies also offer discounts on the bulk orders. The web pages of the steel corporations describe the fittings in detail so that any industry can locate and purchase it easily.
