ASME SA 312 Pipes, when manufactured to the required standards, is more than adequate for the long and rigorous duty cycles required when operating in a reactor environment. Nuclear power today is only possible thanks to the excellent properties of the available construction materials, and none is more important than the steels that carry the high-pressure steam and high temperatures that enable the operation of the turbines that generate electricity. There are different types of steels, characterized by their crystalline structure. For example, when nickel is added, the austenite structure stabilizes, making ASME SA 312 Pipes non-magnetic and less brittle at low temperatures.
We as Siddhgiri Pipes is a known manufacturer and trader of ASTM A312 Polish Pipes, which also has very good SCC resistance and good ductility compared to austenitic standard steels due to its ferritic properties. In contrast to similar steels, it also shows improved resistance to localized corrosion, particularly pitting, crevice corrosion and stress corrosion cracking. In some cases, the strength of this steel can be up to twice that of the most commonly used grades of steel. In terms of applications, these SA 312 Seamless Pipes are used for a variety of functions such as: transport of various liquids and gases, structural and mechanical components of processing plants, heat exchangers, cooling lines, etc. Many nuclear power plants are located on the coast and use seawater for cooling, which in turn requires special pipes that are resistant to the high corrosiveness of salt water.
