Seamless Steel Channel Description

Stainless steel channel is a kind of structural steel for construction and machinery, and its section shape is grooved, like the letters U or I, and is also known as parallel flange channel. Channel steel is mainly used in construction, curtain wall engineering, machinery equipment, and vehicle manufacturing. The channel profile has good welding, riveting, and overall mechanical properties.

The stainless steel channel contains a vertical part called “web.” At each bottom of the web, there are 90-degree parts, called “flange,” inside With radius corners to increase the intensity, ideal for many types of structural applications. Stainless steel channels have a flat surface and a high degree of finish and are widely used on all projects.

The stainless steel channel can be used with other metals to form a specific purpose, shape, and size to meet the project’s needs better. For special shapes, the overall physical-mechanical performance needs to be considered. Standard and special-shaped parts can be made by hot rolling, extruding, or laser welding.

Stainless Channel Beam Benefits

The stainless steel channel is made of stainless steel, so it has the advantage of stainless steel material and is more corrosion resistant. It is commonly used in projects in corrosive environments such as acids, Chemical and sea water environments. Some of the key benefits of the Stainless steel channel include:

Higher intensity: The stable steel channel has a higher strength-to-weight ratio in construction and materials.
Beautiful appearance: Stainless steel is rust-free, easy to maintain, can maintain a clean and long-lasting appearance
Deep machining: The SS channel can be deep processed in various common ways, such as cutting, welding, forming, etc., making it easy to process. High processing precision.
Corrosion resistance: Stainless steel is resistant to saltwater, acid-base solutions, etc., ideal for handling chemicals and waste.
Clean and hygienic: Stainless steel is easy to clean and has a higher degree of finish, making it the first choice for items such as kitchen and other food processing plants.
Heat resistance: The stable steel channel maintains strength in high temperatures without distortion.

Stainless Steel Channel Applications

Thanks to its excellent corrosion resistance and strength, the Stainless steel channel is widely used in the construction of various food processing and pharmaceutical production equipment and projects in coastal areas, including seawater treatment, offshore oil drilling, etc. TMP’s channel steel is also widely used in the following construction and manufacturing projects.

Supporting walls: Stainless steel U/C channels are often used to build support walls for warehouses, production workshops, and other structures, replacing traditional concrete. In traditional wooden buildings, the 316/316L channel can also be used to provide additional support.
Roof: The Stainless steel channel profile can be used as rafters to support the roof.
Door-window frame: SS channels are used in the door and window frame and are clean and not prone to rust.
Trailers: Trailers such as box trailers, boat trailers, and caravans are usually manufactured from 316H steel grooves. Some of the vehicle frames are also built by channel profiles.

Stainless Steel Channel Names in Europe

Stainless channels are the most common steel profile, and due to their shapes and sizes, there are different names and standards in different European regions. Channels are divided into European regions: UPN, UPE, and UPA; their main differences are as follows:
UPN: Stainless steel channels with inclined flanges
UPE: SS channels with complete parallel flanges. No inclined flanges, a slightly wider flange
UPA: Same as UPE, just the web and flanges have the same continuous thickness

U-Channel vs C-channel

U-U-Channel and C-channel are similar and look a little different. They all have a vertical “web,” At each end of the web, there’s a flange, the flanges are completely parallel, or the flange is tapered. The flange has specific radios that provide additional strength and stability at the web connection. Typically, the flanges for U-channel are parallel, and the flanges for C-channel are tapered.

Terms for Stainless Steel channels

Terms for Stainless Steel Channels

Also known as channel depth, this is the length between the top of one flange to the bottom of the other one

Flange Width
The width measures the overall width of the channel.

Flange Thickness
Sometimes referred to as leg thickness, this measurement provides a thickness measurement

Web Thickness
The web thickness measures the web thickness of the painless steel channel.

Radius corner
The C-channels have a film on the inside; Manufacturers may not always provide the radius of the fillet.
