Type 304 Stainless Steel Cabinet
One of the most corrosion resistant and commonly used type of stainless steel, Type 304 is in the family of austenitic alloys of stainless steel that exhibits excellent corrosion resitant properties, especially when maintained annually. Type 304 stainless is resistant to oxidation in non-chloride environments, and is typically used in applications such as on-shore refineries and production facilities where corrosion is likely.
Type 304 stainless steel is standard 18/8, designating the inclusion of 18% chromium and 8% nickel, with a mixture of other metals. The chromium, infused during manufacture of the material, creates an invisible layer on the surface of the steel to prevent rusting. Type 304 stainless steel is also non-magnetic. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and has an extremely long useful life, so it is an excellent choice for companies looking to decrease their impact on the environment. Specific Systems Type 304 cabinets are constructed using 16-gauge type 304 stainless steel with a bright, unpolished 2B milled finish. This finish is smooth enough to resist particle adhesion and is easily maintained.
As a standard feature, 12-gauge type 304 stainless steel is used inside the cabinet as mounts for motors to increase the level of corrosion resistance throughout the unit. 304 stainless steel is also used in the manufacture of the standard drain pan in every unit.
