Olathe, Kans.—Tompkins’ complete line of hydraulic adapters is available in 316 Stainless Steel. While the initial cost may be somewhat higher when compared to traditional plated steel adapters, stainless steel offers several significant advantages to standard plated steel.
Advantages of stainless steel
316 Stainless Steel can provide an extra measure of protection in climates and applications where steel, bronze, and other materials could corrode and potentially fail. It is particularly effective at preventing the pitting type corrosion so prevalent in sea coast environments and offers critical durability and performance advantages in industrial applications where it may be exposed to acids, alkalis, and other chemicals.
