Transportation and LNG Ship
Various types of stainless steel are also increasingly widely and successfully used in freight containers, For loading LNG (LNG), chemicals, beverages, etc. 304L stainless steel is used as the container of LNG in freight transportation, not for corrosion resistance, but for the purpose of considering the mechanical properties under low temperature. For the container of marine chemicals, the purpose of stainless steel is mainly to consider its corrosion resistance. 316L is generally used for the goods loaded on ships, such as acetic acid, syrup and xylene Stainless steel, and duplex stainless steel such as 2205 is used at the higher end.
Automobile and high-speed railway are one of the fastest developing application fields of stainless steel at present. The body structure is mainly made of high-strength stainless steel, such as 301L, which can greatly reduce the dead weight of the vehicle and enhance the strength of the body structure. Using stainless steel as the panel and decorative parts of the vehicle can reduce the maintenance cost. At the same time, stainless steel also has the advantage of heat resistance and is widely used in the exhaust system of the vehicle.
