Material Availability: Metals
316 ss from inventory (this is NOT NEVER with Ti additives
(because that European TITANIUM MODIFIED stainless becomes like Swiss
cheese with some chemicals and environments.)
The 316 stainless that we use is "dual certified",
Meaning, that the chemical analysis is LOW carbon - (aka 316L)
but also mechanical properties (Yeild, and UTS) exceed straight grade 316.
And some finished inventory, plus some raw material for High pressure units,
mainly the oil industry.
Hydraulic / Fluid Power products are from carbon steel as standard, with
offshore units being from stainless.
Alloy 20. some samller volume units in stock/inventory, we hold more
not machined materials. plate and bar.
Duplex and Super Duplex stainlesses are stock / inventory in smaller volumes
We also hold bar stock in various sizes and some Zeron plate.
Some Hasteloy C276 component parts are on the shelf, and we hold
HC276 plate in the racks.
Titanium 2. is readily avaliable at reasonable cost and on short lead
times - but not held in Inventory
"Monel" We hold a little Cupro Nickel 400 grade.
Tantalum and Zirconium pieces are only made to order
PIPE, and also Tubes.
All cylindrical products are SEAMLESS (never with longitudinal welds)
PLASTICS, and plastic pipe limited to :-
PVC (and some "CPVC") plus Polly Propylene
Materials above 150mm diameter and up to 300mm are made from
inventory material but machined after receiving orders.
We do hold some glass filled PTFE bar in inventory.
"ANY MACHINABLE MATERIAL."
OTHER ADVICE :-
People are beginning to realize the disaster of German Ti modified Stainless.
We have GENUINE 316L stainless.
Many times the UNS numbers system do not show the differences.
We stress relieve "solution anneal" all stainless.
(stops work hardening stress cracking)
