Stainless steel is very common in life, from construction to product packaging, storage containers, kitchen utensils have the presence of stainless steel, due to the excellent properties of stainless steel materials, it has become our daily life from construction to transport and household appliances in the basic part. In fact, most of our most impressive architectural structures contain stainless steel in it.
So how does this material be used for liquid containers? Medium-sized bulk containers (IBCs) are designed for the storage and transport of liquid and particulate matter, such as food ingredients and pharmaceuticals. Stainless steel used in the manufacture of many IBCs, there are many beneficial reasons that you can find below.
The main advantages of Stainless Steel Containers is its versatility. The precise composition of the material can be varied to suit a particular application and include many other benefits, such as strength and ductility. Other major advantages of using stainless steel include:
Corrosion resistance - All stainless steels are corrosion resistant and therefore do not rust like any other metal. For atmospheric conditions, low alloy grades are most suitable; and high alloy grades are better resistant to corrosion in acid, alkaline and chloride environments. The latter is especially true at elevated temperatures and pressures.
Temperature resistance - many stainless steel grades can withstand fouling at high temperatures and temperatures and maintain strength. On the other hand, even at low temperatures, many other grades will also show excellent strength.
Manufacturing - Most stainless steel can be cut, shaped, welded, manufactured and machined.
Strength - Cold work hardening performance of stainless steel can reduce the thickness, weight and cost of the material. The material can also be heat treated to build extremely high strength components.
Hygiene - The hygienic nature of stainless steel makes it ideal for hospitals, food processing equipment and pharmaceutical plants.
Life - This durable and low maintenance material lasts for a long time. In fact, it is the cheapest choice compared to the life of other materials.
