Stainless Steel Tubing consist 10.5% Chromium of their total weight. Stainless Steel is also known as Inox steel. The name Inox translates to inoxidizable in French. SS Tubing do not corrode easily in reducing acids. Chloride pitting is also resisted by Stainless steel tubes. These properties make SS Tubing usable in many applications that require high strength and resistance to corrosion.
Tubing are made in three ways viz. Welded, Seamless and drawn-over. The minimal maintenance costs of Stainless Steel Tubing make them usable in many industries. Stainless Steel is used in man household applications like culinary devices, to industry spec applications. Many industries like chemical plants, water treatment, paper mills, chemical tankers, road tankers and more use Stainless Steel tubes. SS products also find heavy usage in medical field applications. Stainless Steel Tubing resist phosphoric and nitric acid attacks effectively. SS is found in four types Martensitic, Austenitic, Ferritic and Duplex. Where, Austenitic stainless steels are the largest group of the SS family. Up to two-thirds of stainless steel production is done using Austenitic steels.
