Stainless Steel 410s Pipes is a low carbon, non-hardening variant of Alloy 410 (UNS S41000), the all-purpose martensitic stainless steel with 12% chromium. Due to the low carbon content and minimal alloy addition, austenite formation at high temperatures is minimized, which limits the alloy's ability to harden. Even when quickly cooled from above the critical temperature, Stainless Steel 410s Pipes maintain their soft and ductile characteristics. When the alloy is subjected to high temperatures or welded, this non-hardening property aids in preventing cracking. When 410S is annealed, it is entirely ferritic. It has good corrosion resistance, comparable to that of 410, and good oxidation resistance.
Even after being quickly cooled from above its critical temperature, the alloy retains its softness and ductility. This indicates that it is appropriate for uses like pumps and valves. In some auto exhaust systems, it is also utilized.
The corrosion resistance of stainless steel 410S is often reduced by carbide precipitation, which makes it unsuitable for usage at temperatures above 300C.
The special characteristics and chemical makeup of Type 410S make it ideal for a wide range of applications in a number of key industries, including Petroleum refining, Petrochemical processing, Thermal processing, Gate valves, Press plates, Heat exchangers, Ore processing, and mining machinery.
