    Why Not Stainless Steel SS316 Compression Fittings

    No one of manufacturer had idea to build set of adapters, extenders and fittings from stainless steel/inox material.
    They durability compare to available compression fittings and cleaning can't compare at all. They could last as long you could replace o-rings.

    Stainless steal have specific sound and feeling, dominant to other similar materials when you keep him in hand and touch.

    Tanks and atomizers for electronic cigarettes are made mostly from stainless steel+borosilicat glass/pyrex.
    Cheaper version are made from brass usually.

    There is a tanks worth 150-160$ and more if they have gold plated parts, but they are stainless steel with extremely precise thread produced to unscrew and close every day even few times. Because of that I could estimate that compression fitting from such material would dominate on market.


    They could be matt, brushed or mirror polishes, as victorinox knives...
    I can't find reason why they no one have idea to build stainless steal fittings without printing, with engraved logo of company if want...

    If these parts can, then why no fittings... except saving cost.
    Any company who launch something like that even if they cost
    10 euro per fitting will outperform competition and probably cause and others to launch similar stuff.
    Stainless steel could be used with all materials, he can corrode maybe but not under this conditions in watercooling loop.
    Cleaning them from out or inside would be much easier with simple detergent for disches, alhocol, water. Not sensitive on anything similar.

    I would immediately use them from EKWB if they launch SS fittings.

    As I understand it SS is more difficult in the manufacturing and bending process, so cost up. Also if you have copper blocks to connect to then you'd be asking for trouble IMO. It would want to be consistent throughout. But I'm not a metallurgist, so what do I know? Would look sweet though I'd agree. What about chrome plated brass as an option?

    Corrosion can't be problem in SS316L vs copper, sunction pipe on some EKWB Reservoirs same as pump parts are stainless steal and can't be installed only with EKWB Fluid Gaming (Aluminium series) in their warning. That mean stainless steel 316L could freely be used for 100% compression fittings. Whole suction pipe on XRES 100/140 Glass is Stainless Steal but other XRES Combos contain stainless steal.

    I predict more that price is reason. Better to say probably difference in price of 1kg stainless steel and 1kg brass is much different.
    But that would be best series of compression fitting on the world. I would build completely flat fitting with small engraved logo of company and two place for tightining as you see on Moonson fittings. Everyone would like such fittings. There is a several type of stainless steal and 100% some of them could be used with cooper and other materials.

    Brass is much softer and easier for deformation and much harder to wash, easier lose color and shine, much harder clean dirt than from stainless steel.
    Stainless steel is widely used in food industry and equipment for preparing food, easier to keep him clean than other materials.

    These small parts, drip tips from 100% stainless steel worth 2-3$ peace. That mean price of compression fitting can't be more than 3-4 times higher, eventually. Again that's acceptable price for people who need 10 fittings and few adapters.
