How It's Made Stainless Steel
How it is Manufactured
Usually they recycle old stainless steel, or steel and melt it in a furnace with chrome and nickel. Then move it to a refining furnace while pipes in the refining furnace add argon and oxygen gas to convert some of the impurities into gas. Then its poured out into a long piece of steel, cooled a bit then cut into slabs. Then its reheated and power washed to get dirt that has collected on the surface off and run through rollers to flatten the slab. The still hot slab is then rolled into a coil on a spool. The coiled steel goes through an acid wash to get off access scale on the surface then its left to cool.
