The term “SS 316H Bar Tolerance” refers to a particular kind of material tolerance that is only used about SS 316H Bars. When it comes to the design criteria for these kinds of bars, this particular form of tolerance establishes the range of allowable deviations in dimensions as well as other properties. The grade, the form, and the applicable specifications for the given application each have a role in determining the degree of variance that is acceptable. In a general sense, SS 316H Bar Tolerance refers to characteristics including diameter, length, width, straightness, camber (tilt), twist, and various other forms of dimensional variance.

Application of stainless steel 316H bar?
Stainless steel 316H bars are mainly used for applications where higher tensile strength is required. This grade of stainless steel has superior resistance to corrosion and pitting, making it ideal for marine and chemical processing environments. The combination of high carbon content and molybdenum also provides excellent creep and stress rupture properties at elevated temperatures, which make it perfect for high-temperature applications such as furnace parts, oven liners, heat exchangers, flanges, and piping. Additionally, the Stainless Steel 316H bar can be used in architectural structures that require added protection against extreme weather conditions like rain, snow, salt water, or coastal climates.

Where is ASTM A479 grade 316H flat bar used?
ASTM A479 Grade 316H Flat Bar is primarily used in many industries, particularly well-suited for use in highly corrosive environments due to its high molybdenum content and its resistance to chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking. Specifically, it is often used in architectural applications such as wall cladding, or as a material for equipment exposed to brine solutions, hypochlorite, acids, and other chemicals found in water treatment plants. Generally also used in power generation plants due to its good mechanical properties and excellent weldability. Common uses of ASTM A479 Grade 316H Flat Bar include frames for offshore oil rigs, electrical components, springs, fasteners, and car body parts.
Diameter of the stainless steel 316H rounds and BS 1.4301 rectangular bars ranges from 8mm – 57mm as per ASTM A276 standards
What is ASTM A276 type 316H rod hardness?
ASTM A276 Type 316H Rod hardness is determined through a series of tests, such as Rockwell Hardness, Brinell Hardness, Vickers Hardness, and Knoop Hardness. ASTM A276 Type 316H Rods generally have good mechanical properties that make them suitable for use in high-temperature applications. The most commonly reported Rockwell Hardness of ASTM A276 Type 316H Rods ranges between 86 and 92. Brinell Hardness ranges between 310 to 369 MPa, Vickers Hardness is between 269 to 331 HV and Knoop Hardness ranges between 564 to 655. ASTM A276 Type 316H Rod has a hardness of approximately 217 HBW (Brinell Hardness), 85 HRB (Rockwell Hardness B scale), and 95 HV (Vickers Hardness).
