  • Designing a Tube Mill

    Stainless steel tube mills are simply mills designed to shape and manufacture stainless steel products. The mills vary in size depending on the application, but all mills require a large amount of pressure to shape the durable metal. Manufacturers of stainless steel tube mills must go through a thoughtful design process before they manufacture any specific mill design. When creating a new tube mill, the following considerations are necessary: Product application: The designer must think about what kinds of products will be made using that mill. The designer must also...

  • Painless Tubing Is Stainless Tubing

    I often wonder how the heck people survived back in the day without the help of things like cars, phones and amazon.com, let alone without basic electricity and modern plumbing. The notion of not having running water a mere hop, skip and jump away from me at all times (not counting my once-a-year camping trip) makes me fidget with fright and that's not even considering the loads of more specific advancements we have made in, for example, irrigation, plumping, heating, and tubing systems in general. Stainless tubing, while seemingly insignificant...

  • The Skinny on SS Tubes

    I was just given a stainless steel water bottle for Christmas and told to throw out my inferior pile of plastic and aluminum water bottles that I had grown accustomed to buying and using. In researching what the big fuss was over stainless steel, I came to understand that it had to do with the unique and desirable characteristics of stainless steel. SS tubes, like "Dick", "Nick" and "Sue", is a shortened version for stainless steel tubes, a type of hollow, cylindrical tool used to transport fluids and gases from...

  • Stainless Tubing In the Realm of Music

    Musical instruments are created from a variety of metals, woods, and even plastics. The material out of which an instrument is constructed not only affects the look of the instrument, it also affects the way the instrument itself functions. A metal instrument will necessarily sound different from a plastic or wooden instrument; a tuba will sound unlike a clarinet, for example. There are many reasons for the difference in sound, of course, but the material makes an important difference. I was thinking about how organs are constructed; pipe organs are...

Industry Information

Stainless Tubing

Another term for stainless steel tubing, stainless tubes are hollow, cylindrical objects used as equipment components or as the medium through which fluids pass. The most common grades of stainless steel used to fabricate stainless tubing are 304 and 316 stainless steel. These grades are used for their extremely high corrosion resistance as well as their ability to be used in applications requiring sanitary grade materials.

Benefits of using stainless steel for tube fabrication include the ease of cleaning, low maintenance and long run cost-effectiveness. Even though stainless steel may require a higher initial cost than other metals, maintenance and replacement costs are lower. In addition, stainless tubing is less expensive than titanium, which is a metal with similar properties and applications. Mainly used in the medical industry, stainless tubing is used is referred to as hypodermic tubing, and is the medium for transferring medicine from a bottle to under the skin and into the bloodstream. Stainless steel is used because its smooth and crack-free surface is very easy to sterilize. Stainless tubing is also used in a variety of applications in the dental, automotive, petrochemical, papermaking, and semiconductor industries, to name a few. While stainless tubing is usually round, square types are often manufactured to make stepladders, display racks and bar foot railings.

Stainless tubing is constructed through welding or seamless tubing procedures. Welding involves roll forming stainless steel and connecting the formed portions along a seam through fusion. Seamless tubing, in comparison, involves the creation of stainless steel tubing through piercing a round blank. In general, welding achieves a higher degree of precision without secondary operations. The degree of precision required, however, depends on the industrial application of the tubing. Another method of fabricating stainless tubing is through extrusion. Perhaps the most easily available type is the seamless stainless steel pipe or tube, which is formed by extrusion. In extrusion, a solid billet is drawn over a piercing rod, which creates a hollow shell without any seams, unlike welding, where seams are unavoidable. Seamless tubing and piping is the most reliable when it comes to retaining high amounts of pressure, as it is much less likely to split. The use of stainless steel in the production of tubing is widespread due to the advantageous properties of stainless steel. Stainless steel is the most common material used in the manufacturing of tubing, providing excellent corrosion resistance and little required maintenance and cleaning. Stainless tubing is also cost-effective in the long run. Even though stainless steel may require a higher initial cost than other metals, maintenance and replacement costs are lower.
