Steel tubing has become very important part of many industries. It has been used for the construction on industrial as well as domestic level. With the advanced technology its manufacture has changed and become more reliable. In industries people prefer steel tubing because of its many benefits such as if can handle temperature and are more powerful and strong. In the past people were using plastic pipes for gas but know they are using steel tubes, it is also being used in home appliances. Automobile industry is also using it for the internal parts of vehicles such as fuel injection and suspension and vehicle control systems. It’s used has increased very much in automobile industry from 90’s.
Stainless steel is made of the mixture of steel alloy and chromium. The addition of chromium make sure that the material remains rust free which makes it durable that is the reason for it being called stainless steel. The best part about this steel is that it does not affect other metals if touched by them and does not need lot of maintenance because of being oxidation resistant. This is best to be used for piping and tubing manufacture.
There are many kinds of pipes which are being made by stainless steel. Pipes and tubes have been classified differently for different purposes but it is hard to understand which type of pipe will be useful for which purpose. For tubing and piping applications, type 304 stainless steel is a common selection because it is highly chemical and corrosion resistant. However, type 304 stainless steel is not compatible with applications where temperatures fall between 800 and 1640 degrees Fahrenheit because it is prone to carbide precipitation, a result of the material’s .08 percent carbon content limit.
For those applications which need to resist rust, general type of stain less steel is being used. Ferritic or martensitic types of steel made by common chromium are manufactured to be either heat-treated or annealed. Austenitic Stainless steels can also be very rust resistant because it a much large amount of chromium than other type of steels.
Solid chromium or chromium is being mixed with nickel for the manufacturing of Stainless Steel Pressure Pipe which also includes seamless and welded pipe, electric fusion welded pipe for high-pressure applications, large diameter welded pipe for corrosive or high-temperature applications, and seamless and welded ferritic and austenitic stainless steel pipe.
Steel Houston has the biggest and the best quality of steel products. Stainless Steel Sanitary Tubing is for those appliances in which it comes to contact with food, liquid and other products and it is important that it remain rust free for the sake of people’s health. This type of steel is very easy to clean. Stainless Steel Mechanical Tubing is being used in cylinders, hollow formed parts and bearing. This type of steel can be made in different types of shapes such as rectangular as well as rectangular. Stainless Steel Aircraft Tubing is being used in aircraft because it is heat resistant as well as rust resistant and also because these crafts required power and control.
