Type 316 stainless steel plays crucial role in the continuation of ocean research
:  : Apr 15,2021

The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, managed by Scripps Institute of Oceanography, is one of the world's largest research piers. Since its initial construction in 1916, scientific experiments at the pier have furthered understanding of global oceans. Replacing the pier's railings with Type 316L stainless steel posts and cable infill ensures that the research projects can continue safely into the future.

316 stainless steel has strong resistance to atmospheric corrosion, long-lasting durability, and can cope with atmospheric corrosion at high temperatures. High-strength supporting force to meet the load-bearing requirements of the bridge, in addition to its weak magnetic processing, which plays an indispensable role in scientific research.
