  • How Does the Hole Get Inside Hypodermic Needles?

    Did you know that suppliers for hypodermic needles use a very special process to create the small, but strong needles? Each needle must contain a narrow, hollow center inside the needle for collecting blood or administering medication. The process of creating these tiny, hollow metal pieces made from stainless steel is quite interesting, and most companies will use a similar process to create their own needles. If you have ever wondered how hypodermic needles are created, look no further. First, the factory takes a long stainless steel billet and heats...

  • Getting Tubular with Stainless Steel!

    Stainless Steel Tubing image courtesy of Penn Stainless Products. Today I have to go to the dentist. I hate going to the dentist. I dread going to the dentist. Just thinking about going to the dentist puts me in a bad mood, rich with anxiety, fear and foreboding. Like most people, going to any sort of dental or medical office is not a particularly fun experience nobody likes being the patient (not considering the few weirdos who do) having to withstand being poked and prodded, lectured to about what you...

  • Hypodermic Tubing Saves the Day

    I write this as I think about a recent, relatively minor, though none the less upsetting occurrence that happened this weekend, involving my mother and, to an unsurpirsing extent, stainless steel hypodermic tubing. During her usual Sunday morning walk, my mother slipped on a patch of ice and fell, shattering one of the major bones in her arm. This was followed by a full day's worth of hospital fun time, entailing painful readjustments, x-rays, needles and, as it happened, an intensive four and a half hour reconstructive surgery. Stainless steel...

Industry Information

Hypodermic Tubing

Hypodermic tubing is commonly used as the medium for introducing medicine or drugs under skin. Either as a method of injection or removal, hypodermic tubing allows for the rapid delivery of fluids. As a result, this type of stainless steel tubing is usually formed into hypodermic needles for medical applications. It is a slender, hollow, cylindrical length of stainless steel, typically 316 or 304 grade, with a puncturing point made at one end to form a needle.

In terms of needle applications, there are a variety of diameters of hypodermic tubing that work best for certain requirements. For instance, large diameter hypodermic tubing are used for blood donation because the wideness of the needle allows for the removal of blood at a much quicker pace than would be allowed by an average or small diameter hypodermic tube. Small diameter hypodermic tubing, on the other hand, should not be used for blood donations because the small size of the needle will rupture the red blood cells and make the blood unable to be utilized by recipients. In addition to needle applications, hypodermic tubing is also utilized for spacers, hypodermic guide wires, cannulas and hypodermic capillary tubing in the medical, mechanical, electronic, chemical and aeronautical industries.

Hypodermic tubing is differentiated from other types of tubing by its own set of gauge sizes. For example, fractional tubing is measured by outside diameter and wall thickness, using common fraction sizes like 1/4" outside diameter combined with a .035" wall thickness. Hypodermic tubing comes in thin, regular and heavy wall varieties. Hypodermic tubing may be offered in 6", 12", 24" or 36" lengths. However, hypodermic tubing, or needle tubing, is categorized by gauges, which are determined by the outside diameter and the inside diameter of the tube. Hypodermic tubing can range from .005" to .259" outside diameter and .002" to .239" inside diameter. Hypodermic tubing gauges are generally found numbered between 3 and 35, the smaller the number, the larger the diameters. For medical applications, the largest usable gauge size is 7, while the smallest usable gauge size is 33. Hypodermic tubing gauges are rooted in the Birmingham Gage, which is otherwise known as Stub's Iron Wire Gage and also measures the thicknesses of pipes. Hypodermic tubing manufacturers should have gauge size charts available to assist in deciding which type of hypodermic tubing is needed for a specific application.
