We are seeing specifications requiring 316L SST for machined parts in valves, etc., to be used in some corrosive services. We have, in the past, generally utilized only 316SST. There is no welding required for such parts. My questions addresses the difference in corrosion resistance between 316 and 316L.
I would appreciate a quick lesson on these two versions of stainless steel.
