The Advantages of Seamless Coil Tubing

If you specify tubing for fluid delivery systems, you should go seamless. In a new video, we explore the quality and performance advantages of seamless stainless steel and nickel alloy coil tubing over welded tubing. The reason why: seamless tubing doesn’t suffer from the welding defects that can cause leaks, holes or failure points. Watch [...]

ECM: A Cut Above The Rest

The geometry of the tube end can make or break your tube’s performance in sensitive industries like chromatography, semiconductor manufacturing and aerospace. The tube end determines how the tube interacts with a variety of complex assemblies, which means there can be little room for error in how they’re cut. Traditional saw-cut methods are too abrasive [...]
