Hydraulic steel fittings come in either carbon or stainless steel options.It can be difficult to make broad generalizations on the differences between carbon and stainless steel because there are so many varieties of each.
What ultimately defines stainless steel is the chromium content in the steel which must be at least 10.5% to qualify as stainless.
Stainless steel fittings have been around for quite a while. Owing to their amazing properties, stainless steel fittings are extremely popular in Canada. Stainless steel is a hard metal and does not lose its shape when molded. Also, since it is non-corrosive, it is used for manufacturing high-pressure stainless steel fittings across the globe.
There are some other reasons that account for the increasing demand forhigh-pressure hose fittings made up of stainless steel for industrial purposes. Some of them are discussed below:
Adaptability to temperature changes:Many metals can experience significant expansion and contraction when introduced to severe temperature changes. This expansion/contraction cycle can
lead to loosening of connections and metal fatigue over time. Stainless steel experiences less expansion and contraction impact than other metals.
