stainless steel tube is one of the most versatile metal alloy materials available. Its high strength and corrosion resistance make it ideal for a wide range of applications.
304 and 316 are the two most common stainless steel grades for tubing applications. Stainless steel tubing is widely used in chemical, industrial, medical and oil and gas industries. It can reliably withstand the hot, corrosive nature of many chemicals and liquids without degrading.
There are several ways to produce seamless stainless steel tubes, including extrusion, gun drilling, and piercing. However, extrusion is the most cost-effective and reliable method.
When choosing a finish for your stainless steel tube, choose something that will provide an optimal balance between visual appeal and corrosion resistance. For example, a mill finish can be applied to create a durable surface that is easy to clean, or you may want to go with a 180 grit finish, which produces a smoother surface that does not reflect light as much.
The sizing and shape of your stainless steel tube should also be carefully considered. Sizing will affect the weight of your product, which can have a significant impact on operations and maintenance.
