Large Stainless Steel Hollow Balls With Different Material Brief
Hollow balls with material of #201 #304 #306 are able to get a remarkable weigth saving and keep the properties of the correspondent solid balls (mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, magnetism). The low density value allows balls to float.

In short, type 201 Stainless Steel Hollow Spheres are more cheaper but is not as effective at preventing corrosion. If you are looking for more durability at a lower cost for your project and are not worried about exposure to corrosive elements, 201 Stainless Steel Large Ball is a great option for you. 304 Stainless Steel Ball with its higher nickel content is more common in the industry, but it requires more cost due to the rising cost of nickel which makes this type of stainless steel spheres less susceptible to corrosion. While 201 Stainless Steel Hollow Sphere has the lowest resistance to corrosion, and type 304 Metal Ball is more resistant, type 316 Stainless Steel Gazing Ball has the most.
316 Stainless Steel Hollow Ball is ideal for situations with more saline and chloride exposure. Therefore, Haixu Co., Ltd. recommend to choose metal sphere with 316 stainless steel if your project requires one with high resistance to corrosion.
