The SS Type 347 is austenitic steel stabilized with columbium or tantalum for better temperature resistivity. It has many traits matching with the Type 304/L. Some manufacturers also use niobium, which offers excellent interangular resistance against corrosion when the steel is exposed to temperatures ranging from 800F to 1500F.

With better temperature and corrosion resistance, this steel can serve a wide range of applications. The steel is better suited for the [arts that are welded together and are not required to be annealed subsequently.

  • How does steel behave when exposed to cold forming?

SS 347 is very easy to form and draw and like most other austenitic steels its work hardens and requires annealing right after it severe forms

  • How to harden SS 347 with heat treatment?

Type 347 is not going to harden by heat treatment. Only cold working works for this.

  • How to weld SS347?

You can weld ss 347 by using standard fusion-resistance techniques. For the best results, you can use 347/348 electrodes or filler rods.
