General Information

Principal Design Features

Similar to 321 stainless, 347 uses columbium as a stabilizing element to maximize its principal feature: resistance to intergranular corrosion. It can be used in applications requiring repeated heating in the range of 800 and 1650 F (427-899 C).


Applications

High temperature gaskets and expansion joints, rocket engine parts, aircraft collector rings and exhaust manifolds and chemical production equipment.


Machinability

Slightly tougher than 304 stainless, this material will produce the same tough stringy chips. The use of slow speeds and constant positive feeds will minimize this alloy's tendency to work harden.


Corrosion Resistance

Organic media, atmospheric conditions, very weak acids, milk and other dairy products will have little affect on 347. Far superior to unstabilized chromium-nickel steels in terms of corrosion in the range of 800-1500 F(427-816 C).For maximum corrosion res


Welding

347 may be welded by all commonly used fusion and resistance methods. Oxyacetylene welding is not recommended. When necessary, use AWS E/ER347 filler metal.


Hot Working

Working temperatures of 2100-2250 F (1149-1232 C) are recommended for forging, upsetting and other hot work processes. Do not work this alloy at temperatures below 1700 F ( 927 C). Material must be water quenched or fully annealed after working to reattai


Cold Working

Although this material requires higher initial forces than 304 stainless, it is quite tough and ductile and can be readily stamped, blanked, spun and drawn.


Annealing

1850-2000 F (1010-1093 C), water quench. This procedure will result in maximum ductility. For maximum corrosion resistance, see the note on stabilizing anneal under corrosion.


Hardening

This alloy does not harden by heat treating. Elevated properties may only be obtained through cold reduction.
