What is 310 stainless steel grade
310 Stainless steel grade contain 25% chromium and 20% nickel, making them highly resistant to oxidation and corrosion. 310 Stainless steel grade is a lower carbon version, less prone to embrittlement and sensitisation in service. The high chromium and medium nickel content make these steels capable for applications in reducing sulphur atmospheres containing H2S. They are widely used in moderately carburising atmospheres, as encountered in petrochemical environments. For more severe carburising atmospheres other heat resisting alloys should be selected. 310 Stainless steel grade is not recommended for frequent liquid quenching as it suffers from thermal shock. The grade is often used in cryogenic applications, due to its toughness and low magnetic permeability.
310 stainless steel are forged in the temperature range 975 – 1175°C. Heavy work is carried out down to 1050°Cand a light ﬁnish is applied to the bottom of the range. After forging annealing is recommended to relieve all stresses from the forging process.
