ASTM A213 TP316L Tubing is now considered fully weldable but requires more care than other austenitic steels. We ensure these alloys, produced by our trusted steel mills and fabricators, are of the highest possible quality and fully tested to international standards. While it is true that the seams in such steel theoretically make it weaker than this alloy, manufacturing methods and quality control procedures are much better these days. That said, as long as that steel’s specified temperature and pressure tolerances are not exceeded, there’s no reason it shouldn’t perform as well as seamless tubing in a variety of industries. ASME SA 213 TP316L Tubes is an excellent choice for several products for many different industries including petrochemical, desalination, oil and gas, and chemical processing.
We as Siddhgiri Tubes is a prominent supplier of ASTM A213 Grade TP316L Seamless Tubes, where strength is perhaps the most important benefit of using this alloy. The ability to withstand greater strength is another benefit of not having a seam. That’s because the absence of a seam means the likelihood of naturally occurring contamination and defects along a weld is very low. The lack of welds means that this SA 213 Gr. TP316L Tubing doesn’t need to undergo as rigorous integrity testing as its welded counterparts. No heat treatment is required after manufacture as they self-harden during the process. It can also be used in salt water; however, it is most useful in extreme temperatures above 1000°F.
