Protective Coatings for Stainless Steel Tubing: Application Makes the Difference

When you need surface-treated stainless steel tubing, not all coatings are created equal. Many coatings can suffer from uneven application, which is especially true for tubing because it can come in many different forms. Or, they may require burn-in or seasoning when applied to stainless steel. That takes time. The best performing protective coatings typically [...]

Laser Scanning Technology Delivers Smoother Tube Surfaces

The HandyTube laser microscope image depicts height variation and measures high/low point averages. Blue areas are low, green mid-range and red high. Gauging tube surfaces to achieve a desired smoothness can be a painstaking and time-consuming process. Many tubing suppliers use profilometers to measure surfaces, but this technique involves a long setup time, [...]

Precision Tube ID Surface Condition & Cleanliness: High-Purity Results

Developers of chromatography, analytical laboratory equipment and medical instrumentation need to ensure they select the correct tubing for their application. The demands of laboratory and production applications require high quality tubing to maintain the critical purity of chemical processes and testing. Tubing that does not meet the stringent specifications of the application typically experience quality problems caused by contaminates. This results in frequent, labor intensive and costly replacement of components because of corrosion of the inside of the stainless steel tubing. […]
