Stainless Steel Tube

 

 

Tube

Stainless Steel has inherrent characteristics that lend themselves to applications that require tubular sections:

  • Resistant to corrosion
  • Reduced oxidation
  • Resists high temperatures
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Very low risk of contamination

Various forms of stainless tube are available and can be cut-to-length service, utilising our in-house processing facilities.  Available forms are:

Ornamental

Ornamental stainless tube is a welded product and is therefore not suitable for anything more than minimal bending.

Typical applications include:

  • Boats - ladders, railings, awning poles
  • Decorative Fixings
  • Exhaust Systems
  • Ornamental tube is available in grades 304 and 316 and can have a brushed, dull polished or bright polished finish.

Hygienic

 Hygienic stainless steel tube is a welded product that has had the internal weld bead removed to reduce the risk of contamination, and is more suitable for bending than Ornamental Tube.  Typical apllications are:

  • Dairy
  • Brewery
  • Food processing

Hygienic tube is available in grades 304 and 316 and can have a brushed, dull polished or bright polished finish.
