How to Choose the Right Type of Stainless Steel Sanitary Tubes

Choosing the right stainless steel sanitary tube type for your application can be tricky. Several types of stainless steel alloys are available, each with different characteristics that make them suitable for different uses. To ensure you select the right type of stainless steel for your project, it is important to consider the following factors:

  • Type of Service - Is the product going to be exposed to harsh chemical conditions? What kind of food or beverage will be inside? What other materials will it come into contact with? The type and amount of exposure in any given environment determine which alloy may be appropriate. The specific surface finish requirements must also be considered when determining which type would work best.
  • Cost - How much do you want to spend on this material? The cost per pound and per cubic inch vary widely between alloys and surface finishes. So, depending on budget constraints, one might need more than one option for their product. Lastly, considering whether or not weldability is required will help decide which material would suit your needs best. Some materials can only be joined by welding, while others are only weldable at certain temperatures. Also, some alloys cannot be welded at any temperature.

How to Choose Fittings

Sizes of stainless steel fittings

Stainless steel fittings vary in different sizes ranging from 1/8" to 36" for size A and 1/8" to 30" for size B.

Grades of stainless steel fittings


Commonly referred to as 18/8 stainless steel, this grade is also known as A2. This is according to ISO 3506 standards.


The second most common type of stainless steel used for surgical and food applications is SS316, also known as "marine grade."

This type of steel has a slightly higher resistance to chloride corrosion than 304. It is commonly used for the construction of nuclear reprocessing plants.

Most stainless steel watches are made of this grade. However, some brands, such as those made by Rolex, use a different type of stainless steel called Type 904L. This grade is referred to as "A4" by the IAO.

Schedule of stainless steel fittings

A wide range of stainless steel pipes can be ordered in different schedules. These allow you to visualize the thickness of the walls of the pipes.

Sch 10S

One of the most common types of stainless steel products is the Schedule 10 stainless steel pipe. Various types of materials can be used for this product, such as ferritic, austenitic, and martensitic.

The various characteristics of the pipe, such as its wall thickness, diameter, and length, can vary according to the standards set by different organizations such as ASTM, API, and ASME. The pipe's outer diameter, known as the SS 304 sch 10 pipe, can range from 21.3mm to 762mm.

Sch 40S

The commonly used type of stainless steel pipe is known as Schedule 40. It is used in various water, air, and oil applications. Due to its low price, it is widely used. The steel is highly resistant to corrosion and has an excellent operating temperature.

Its 304 sch 40 pipes thickness can also prevent chlorine ion corrosion cracking. This material has low carbon content and is ideal for localized and welding.

According to the schedule chart, a 4 inches pipe with an outer diameter of 4.5 centimeters and a wall thickness of 6.02-mm has a bore of 102.26 millimeters. On the other hand, a 1-inch pipe with a thickness of 2.77 inches has a bore of 33.4 millimeters.

Sch 80S

Various industries use sch 80 pipes, which are made of high-strength materials and are ideal for exposing pipes. Compared to the regular sch 40 pipes, the weight of schedule 80 is more. Since more materials are used in making these pipes, it is said that they are more expensive.

The dimensions of schedule 80 pipes are designed to withstand high pressure and temperature. This makes them ideal for applications requiring pipes exposed to high pressure and water. The thicker the schedule 80 pipes, the better they can resist higher pressure and temperature.

Also, they are ideal for industrial applications due to their high resistance to water and pressure. The 1-inch Sch 80 pipe's thickness is greater than that of the sch 40 pipes.

Sch 160S

The outer diameter and thickness of a wall can be obtained by considering the pipes' schedule and the National Performance Standards (NPS). For instance, Schedule 160 steel pipes are known for their excellent strength and resistance to corrosion.

These types of pipes also offer various advantages, such as low maintenance and ease of cleaning. It takes less time to prepare these types of pipes for fabrication than other materials.

Depending on the application, the dimensions of these pipes can vary. As their wall thickness and diameter increase, the pressure rating of these pipes can also increase.

The pressure of stainless steel fittings

A pipe fitting is a component used to connect two or more pipes. Since these are used in transporting liquids and gases, the pressure capacities of these fittings need to be specified. There are various classes of pipe fittings that indicate the maximum pressure.


The pressure rating of a stainless steel Class 150 fitting is usually assigned with a 150LBs pressure.


The pressure rating of stainless steel class 2000 can withstand pressures of up to 2000LBs.


The class 3000 stainless steel pipe fittings are used in high-pressure systems such as boiler systems, heat exchangers, and hydraulic systems.

These are supplied by ACE stainless supply. The pressure ratings of the pipe fittings indicate how much pressure they can endure.


These are stainless steel fittings that can withstand the pressure of up to 6000LBs

Stainless steel PEX fittings have become popular over the past few years. The superior strength and corrosion resistance of stainless steel are why this type of fitting is the preferred choice for contractors.

Male, female, and elbow PEX fittings are available in various sizes and are made from 304 stainless steel. These are used for connecting PEX tubing and PE-RT tubing.

These durable stainless steel PEX fittings are ideal for various types of plumbing and hydronic heating systems such as commercial and residential applications.

What we have at Ace Stainless Supply

Ball Valves

Our stainless steel premium quality PEX ball valve is designed to provide easy and quick flow control for your PEX pipe plumbing system. It features a crimp-fitting connection for the PEX hose. These cutting-edge valves are made of 316 stainless steel, and they feature four rings on barbed connections. These are not the same as other PEX products in the industry.

316 stainless steel is a high-quality construction material that resists corrosion and high acidity. It's ideal to facilitate high water quality for drinking and various other applications, such as liquid fertilizers and petroleum products.

Crimp PEX Fittings

Today, plumbers use PEX as the material of choice for their supply piping. Its lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and easy to join is why it's considered the best choice for this type of pipe.

However, its effectiveness also depends on how the tubing is connected. One of the most common methods of connecting the two is through crimp fittings. The various factors that make the installation of Crimp PEX fittings stand out are their conformal standards. We have six types of Crimp PEX Fittings:

1. Coupling

2. Transition Coupling

3. Drop Ear 90 Elbow

4. 90 Elbox

5. Adaptor

6. Plug


A great way to connect PEX pipes to various stainless steel PEX fittings is through stainless steel pinch clamps.

These accessories have an interlocking design, which provides a high-integrity connection similar to a copper crimp ring. These are commonly used on brass, poly PEX fittings, and stainless steel fittings.

Stainless Steel PEX Fittings Corrosion Resistance

A wide range of advantages is available when choosing stainless Poly PEX fitting for contractors. The primary one is its high corrosion resistance, strength, and flow rate.

Most plumbing systems used to be made with copper fittings and pipes. However, due to the increasing popularity of plastic PEX piping, the corrosion can no longer be ignored. Instead, it is now concentrated in brass fittings.

Compared to copper crimp rings or brass, stainless steel PEX fittings are more resistant to corrosion. This is because the PEX wall structure is very thin.

Frequently asked questions about Press fittings

What is Viega Press fit fittings?

These are the kind of fittings that have an O-ring that goes through over tubing whether wet or dry. Or in engineering language, a press fit, also called interference fit, is clipping two parts together using normal force, friction and cold welding. A crimping tool is used to press the fitting in a few seconds. When you use crimping tools, you will need a permanent connection between the joints. The fitting will not allow leakage since it tightens and fastens the joint permanently. Viega press fit fitting exists in stainless steel and copper, among others. Using press-fit tools, you can fit multiple plumbing elements concurrently.

How does the press fit?

The process is simple compared to the traditional one, which has helped reduce the installation time and made the joining process easy and straightforward. All you need to do is just cut the pipe to the required size, debar the inside of the pipe as well as the outside, mark the depth of insertion of the socket on the pipe, drive the conduit into the socket of joining, then using the pressing tool, press the joint and the connecting pipe. Just like that, and you are done. You saved the time you would have spent if you were to use the traditional method. If you are working with very high heights or tricky areas, you can quickly assemble the components with dry joints and then have the following later. In press fitting, sealant, tapes or solder are not needed, giving excellent work.


Several press fittings are available, and Viega offers the best solutions that anyone in the plumbing industry can take advantage of.

If you are into plumbing or other industrial activities requiring stainless steel pipe or pipe fittings, you need us. At Ace Stainless Supply, we provide a variety of these flanges. Call us to know more.

What are stainless steel flanges?

Stainless steel flange refers to flanges composed of stainless steel. ASTM A182 Grade F304/L and F316/L are common material standards and grades, with pressure ratings ranging from Class 150 to 2500 and 300 to 600 respectively.

Because stainless steel has greater corrosion resistance properties than carbon steel and consistently offers a pleasant look from butt weld, it is employed in more industries than carbon steel.

Classification of Flanges


A blind flange often referred to as a blind disk or flanged pipe plug, is similar to a flange cover. For the purpose of sealing the pipe entrance, blind flanges lack center holes. It serves the same purpose as a pipe stopper or pipe cap, then. The distinction is that a blind flange is an easily replaceable and maintainable piece of equipment.

Major Function; The primary purpose of the blind flange is to completely isolate the manufacturing medium. It stops the shut-off valve from closing too loosely, which can have an impact on output or possibly result in accidents.

The blind flange should be placed where isolation is necessary, such as at the equipment nozzle. It is frequently advised to employ a figure 8 blind flange (figure-8 blank) between the front and back of the shut-off valve or between the two flanges. Common round blind flanges are typically used for single-use items like pressing and purging.

Lap Joint

A lap joint flange, also known as an LTF flange, is shaped like a slip-on flange and has a curved radius at the bore that allows it to attach to stub end fittings and glide over the pipe. To allow the lap joint flange to easily revolve around the stub end, the pipe is often welded to this end in this configuration.

The benefit of this combination is that it will make exams and maintenance much more convenient. It will also be simple to install and remove.

Working Conditions; Typically, low-pressure applications require the usage of lap joint flanges. It is not appropriate when the flange pair must support heavy weights. Lap joint flanges may be necessary for some pipes, such as a metal pipe that has previously been lined with plastic.

Slip On

SO flange, also known as a slip-on flange. It's a type of flange that glides over the pipe and has an interior design that is only a little bit bigger than the pipe. The SO flange may be immediately attached to equipment or pipe by filet welding at the top and bottom of the flange since the inner diameter of the flange is slightly bigger than the outer diameter of the pipe. It is utilized to place the pipe within the flange's inner hole.

Types of Slip-On Flange Welding

The two types of SO flanges are SO welding hubbed steel pipe flange and SO welding plate flange. Its mechanical properties fall in between those of an integral and a looped flange. The processing is easy and the structure is straightforward. In different fluid pipelines, slip-on flange welding is therefore often employed.

In accordance with various face types, there are also elevated face types and ring-type joint face types.

Slip-On Flange with Raised Face

This sort of raised face slip on the flange has a little part that is extruded from the bottom face. To improve sealing performance, a gasket seat is placed in this location during installation.

The height of this elevated face will increase with the pressure ratings.

The RTJ Slip on Flange

In contrast to RF type, RTJ is made for high-pressure usage and has a tiny groove machined into the raised face section. This form is known as RTJ type, and its purpose is to install the gasket ring while also being used for sealing.

On-slip flange Slip welding is used to connect equipment, therefore any nomenclature listed below refers to the same flange:

  • weld flange that slips on
  • Flange weld that slips on
  • Slip welding the flange
  • weld on slip flange
  • flange SO


A pipe and a threaded flange are connected without welding. It has a tapered thread (screw) fitting within the flange bore that is installed on the pipe with equivalent exterior threads, making it comparable to a slip-on flange or a socket-weld flange. A seal weld may occasionally be used in addition to a threaded pipe flange.

Although threaded pipe flanges come in a variety of sizes, threaded fittings are often employed in pipelines with modest diameters. (Typically, below 4 inches.)

However, because there is no room for threading, it cannot be used with a pipe system that has thin walls.

Types of Threaded Flange

The threaded flange comes in two varieties. One method involves using a certain sealing surface and a lens pad to seal the two pipe ends. Ammonia manufacturing typically makes use of this kind of flange. It has, however, been utilized less recently, and a metal ring has taken the role of the lens pad.

The other version has two flange sealing faces and is sealed just like a typical flange.

Facing Types

For threaded flanges, raised face flange and ring joint flange are the two facing varieties available.

Increased Face Threaded Flange

The raised face flange may be easily recognized when the gasket surface area is above the flange's fastened line. It works with a variety of gaskets, including flat, semi-metallic, and metallic kinds in both rings and complete configurations.

The fundamental goal of a raised face flange design is to strengthen the strength of the seal by concentrating the pressure of the two matching flanges on a compact surface.

The increased face surface height varies according to the flange pressure level; for instance, the height is 1.6 mm (1/12 inch) for pressure classes 150 and 300 and 6.4 mm (1/4 inch) for pressure levels 400 to 2500.

Threaded Flange RTJ

When metal-to-metal sealing is required, the ring joint flange features a circular groove that may hold the ring joint gasket. Particularly when there are high-pressure and high-temperature circumstances.

Socket Weld

The socket weld flange, often known as an SW flange because of its recessed shoulder-like portion in the flange bore, is used to set the depth of the pipe placed into the flange. Originally intended for high pressure, small diameter pipe systems, socket welding flange.

Tips for Use

Pull back 1.6mm (1/16") of the inserted pipe, put the pipe end into the socket weld flange until the pipe bottom touches the shoulder region, and then perform fillet welding. The goal is to weld a fillet to separate the flange from the pipes or fittings, leaving an expansion space.

How Socket Welding Flange is Produced

In order to prevent cracking faults brought on by thermal pressures during heating operations, the socket welding flange was initially employed for stainless steel superheaters. However, after years of development, it has become a regular application for all sorts of materials.

Types of Socket Welded Flange Face

As with other types of welding flanges, socket welded flanges include the RF type and RTJ type (slip on, weld neck or blind flange).

RF Type

A little part of an RF socket weld flange that extends from the face surrounds the flange bore. This elevated portion will house the gasket seat.

Type RTJ

There is an RTJ style groove on the raised face surface that you may fit a gasket ring in to improve sealing abilities.

Welding Neck Flanges Come in Two Shapes

The two types of welding neck flanges are the long neck weld flange and the reducing weld neck flange, both of which feature a typical long neck with an even diameter.

Weld Neck Flange Reduction

It may be immediately welded to a smaller pipe because, as its name suggests, it functions as both a pipe reducer and a flange.

Extended Weld Neck Flange

When referred to simply as a LWN flange, the neck portion resembles an extended pipe that is joined to a flange. Therefore, it often functions as a nozzle for a column or a barrel.

A heavy LWN flange with a larger thickness and a different form is an alternative to a long welding neck flange with a regular thickness.

Face Type

Raised Face (RF) Type and Ring Type Joint are present, same as other flanges (RTJ).

A little piece of the bottom side of the raised face weld neck flange that surrounds the bore protrudes from the face. This elevated portion will house the gasket seat. The height of the elevated face will vary depending on the various pressure ratings. For instance, the elevated face height of the flange between 150 and 300 pounds is 1/6 inch; over 300 pounds, it will be above 1/4 inch.

The WN flange's ring-joint type features a specially constructed groove where a metal gasket seat may be installed to seal the connections. Therefore, high-temperature and high-pressure services require this type of SW flange.

Plate Flanges

A plate flange is a circular, flat disc that is welded to the end of a pipe to allow the flange to be fastened to another pipe. The terms flat flange, simple flange, flange slip, etc. are frequently used to describe it. It is common practice in fuel and water pipelines to bolt together two plate flanges with a gasket in the middle.

When building a pipeline, the length of the pipes is not always known. In order to unite two pipes that might not be completely matched, the plates can also be welded with a minor bias toward the shaft.

The inner mating surface of plate flanges has a serrated finish, which enables the plate to fit inside the gasket material.

No matter what materials are utilized to make them, plate flange designs are standardized in any given dimension. Thus, a 6-inch (15-cm) black pipe flange will perfectly fit a 6-inch stainless steel flange. This ensures that the two connected pipes will have a flawless seal

Orifice Slip Flange

To gauge product flow through the pipe system, utilize the orifice flange. It is possible to monitor the flow rate of liquids, steam, or gasses by measuring the differential pressure created when the orifice plate is inserted.

The required flow rate determines the central hole of the orifice plate, which is a thin plate.


All ASTM material grades are available in orifice flange assemblies, which are covered by ASME B16.36 and come with either a raised face or a ring type joint facing. They are available in the 300#, 600#, 900#, 1500#, and 2500# Classes but are not manufactured in 150# rated Flanges since these Flanges are not thick enough to allow for the drilling of the pressure taps.

Where to use stainless steel flanges

The normal carbon and iron components of stainless steel are present, along with nickel and minute quantities of additional metals. But one feature that sets it apart is the addition of chromium. Because it is metal alloy, the finish is stainless and provides corrosion resistance.

The majority of the more costly grades provide excellent corrosion resistance. Metals suffer damage from chemicals, rust, and other environmental elements.

Because of this, the flange of choice needs to be one that is resistant to these elements. In comparison to other entry-level metals that are carbon steel versions, stainless steel performs significantly better.

For the majority of uses, stainless steel works because it is strong, resilient, and can endure tremendous pressure. Aluminum may be the less expensive alternative when compared, but it is softer and less durable when subjected to high stress and drastic temperature changes.

Any piece of machinery or system is only as reliable as its weakest link. Joints and welds are notoriously weak locations and must resist extremely high pressure. It helps to choose the right quality of stainless steel flange to make sure that the system won't be compromised by warping or distortion.

How to weld stainless steel flanges

Stainless steel is a desirable option for a variety of demanding tube and pipe applications, including high-purity food and beverage, pharmaceutical, pressure vessel, and petrochemical usage. This is due to the material's resistance to corrosion.

The material's heat dissipation isn't as good as that of mild steel or aluminum, and shoddy welding techniques might reduce the material's corrosion resistance. Two causes include utilizing the incorrect filler metal and applying excessive heat input.

Stainless steel welding best practices can help you get better outcomes and make sure the metal keeps its ability to resist corrosion. Additionally, improving the welding process may increase production without sacrificing quality.

1. A low-carbon filler metal should be used.

The choice of filler metal is essential for regulating carbon levels in stainless steel welding. For stainless steel tube and pipe welding, the filler metal used should improve the weld characteristics and satisfy the application needs.

A reduced maximum carbon concentration is provided by filler metals with a "L" designation, such as ER308L, which helps maintain corrosion resistance in low-carbon stainless alloys.

When a low-carbon base material is welded with a typical filler metal, the weld joint's carbon content rises, raising the risk of corrosion. Stay away from filler metals marked with a "H," as they have a higher carbon content and are intended for applications that need more strength at high temperatures.

It's crucial to select a filler metal with minimal trace (also known as tramp) components when welding stainless steels. These are leftover substances in the raw materials used to create filler metals, which also include antimony, arsenic, phosphorus, and sulfur. They may have a significant impact on the material's ability to resist corrosion.

2. Recognize the effects of shielding gas on corrosion resistance.

The conventional technique for welding stainless steel tube and pipe uses gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) for the root pass. To assist avoid oxidation on the back side of the weld, this often calls for a back purge of argon gas.

With stainless steel tube and pipe, however, utilizing wire welding methods is becoming increasingly typical. It's critical to comprehend how the different shielding gases impact the material's corrosion resistance in these applications.

When welding stainless steel using the gas metal arc welding (GMAW) technique, combinations of argon and carbon dioxide, argon and oxygen, or three gases (helium, argon, and carbon dioxide) have historically been utilized.

Since carbon dioxide can add carbon to the weld pool and raise the danger of sensitization, these mixtures frequently comprise primarily argon or helium and less than 5% of carbon dioxide. For GMAW on stainless, pure argon is not advised.

3. Think about various techniques and waveforms

Stainless steel tube and pipe welding has been made simpler by GMAW methods as they have developed. Advanced wire methods can provide comparable quality and significantly higher productivity in many stainless applications, even though some applications would still require the GTAW process.

In some austenitic stainless steel applications, the back purge can be eliminated by using a modified short-circuit GMAW process, such as Miller's Regulated Metal Deposition (RMD) for the root pass.

When compared to employing GTAW with back purging, especially on larger pipes, the RMD root pass can be followed by pulsed GMAW or flux-cored arc welding fill and cap passes.

4. Pay close attention to appropriate fit-up and weld preparation.

Due to stainless steel's extreme sensitivity to heat input, adequate joint preparation and fit-up are essential for managing heat to preserve the material's characteristics. The torch must stay in one place for longer when there are gaps or an unequal fit between the pieces, and more filler metal is required to fill those gaps.

As a result, heat accumulates in the troublesome location, potentially overheating the component. Additionally, a poor fit-up might make it more difficult to fill gaps and achieve the required weld penetration. Make sure the stainless steel item fit-up is as near to flawless as you can.

5. Recognize the effects of shielding gas on corrosion resistance.

The conventional technique for welding stainless steel tube and pipe uses gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) for the root pass. To assist avoid oxidation on the back side of the weld, this often calls for a back purge of argon gas.

With stainless steel tube and pipe, however, utilizing wire welding methods is becoming increasingly typical. It's critical to comprehend how the different shielding gases impact the material's corrosion resistance in these applications.

How to measure stainless steel flanges

It's crucial to choose the right flange. For a precise match, measure your flange according to the instructions below and compare the results to the dimensions of the flanges offered by The Metal Company. The Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD), which may indicate whether the flange bolt holes will line up, is one of the most crucial metrics.


From one side of the internal hole to the other side of the hole, measure across the center


From one exterior border of the flange to the other, measure across the center.


From one bolt hole's center to the other's, take a measurement. This can also be determined by measuring from the outside edge of the bolt hole to the interior edge of the bolt hole on the opposite side.


In the center of a bolt hole, measure from edge to edge. Typically, this will be a tiny bit bigger than the metric bolt being used.


Measure the distance between the edges of the flat face.

Tips for choosing Flange for piping

1. Size

Consider the flange's size and measurements if you want it to fit correctly. To guarantee the right size, you must pay close attention to how the flange interacts with the pipes and gaskets. Several common dimension concerns are listed below:

  • Thickness
  • pipe size
  • Bolt circle dimensions
  • diameter inside
  • Minimum bore size
  • external diameter

2. Material

One of the popular varieties of pipes on the market are those made of forged carbon steel. Flanges made of bronze, cast iron, aluminum, and stainless steel are also available. Flanges made of specialty metals like Monel, Inconel, and chrome-moly may also be found.

The pipe systems and industrial use determine the sort of material that is employed. It is done to make sure that they will be long-lasting and robust enough. However, the flanges and pipes are often constructed of the same material.

3. Classification

According to ASTM or ASME standards, there are many categories under which all flanges fall. A particular flange type's characteristics affect how well it performs in various industrial settings. There are several pressure classifications and kinds of steel pipes. Metal flanges are categorized from 150 to 2500# rating. The following are some typical categories used in the petrochemical industries:

  • 2500# (and above for API) (and higher for API)
  • 1500#
  • 900#
  • 600#
  • 300#
  • 150#

The various categories differ in accordance with the flange size, design, material, temperature, and pressure tolerances. The pressure ratings could fall as the temperature rises.

4. Pressure Class

Understanding the marginal pressure level at which the flange can sustainably and securely operate is made easier by pressure class. There are many pressure levels accessible for each standard, ranging from high-pressure to low-pressure tolerance. The products to which the flange will be linked must have the same pressure level as the process' valves and pipelines.

Check Piston

Piston valves are a type of stainless steel valve best suited for applications requiring precise flow rate and direction control.

Piston valves consist of a cylindrical housing with a piston inside controlled by a stem and actuator. The stem controls the movement of the piston, while the actuator controls the pressure and timing of the valve's operation. The stem typically has multiple ports to allow for varying degrees of flow control.

Piston valves are often used in systems where accuracy and repeatability are essential. They are especially useful in systems where temperatures and pressures can vary significantly, such as in some water treatment plants. The valve's design ensures precise control of the flow rate and direction, even when there is a wide variation in temperature or pressure.

Piston valves are also available in various sizes and materials to suit specific applications. Depending on the type of application, these valves can be made from brass, cast iron, stainless steel, or even plastic.

If you are looking for precise control and accuracy in your system, then piston valves may be the right choice for you. They are a reliable and cost-effective option that can handle various pressures and temperatures.

What are the Advantages of Stainless Steel Valves?

Due to their many advantages, steel valves have become an increasingly popular choice among industrial professionals. Stainless steel is a strong, corrosion-resistant alloy that is extremely durable and can withstand high temperatures. This makes it the perfect choice for many applications, including those in the petrochemical, marine, and power generation industries.

Compared to other valve materials, stainless steel valves offer several benefits. They are more resistant to corrosion, require less maintenance, and can last longer than other valves.

Additionally, stainless steel valves are non-magnetic, making them ideal for use in magnetic field applications. This also helps to reduce the risk of wear and tear from metal particles or sediment buildup.

Stainless steel valves are also lightweight and cost-effective compared to other metals. They are generally easier to install and service, saving time and money. Plus, they are better able to handle extreme temperature changes, making them suitable for use in hot or cold environments.
