Hypodermic tubing is known as an effective component for applications requiring strength, uniformity and corrosion resistance. Stainless steel 316 hypodermic tubing is full-hard, welded and drawn small diameter tubing available in a wide variety of gauge sizes and wall thicknesses. This stainless steel is distinguished from 304 in its addition of molybdenum, which makes it more corrosion resistant than 304 alloys. Component Supply stocks production quantities of hypodermic tubing in the sizes indicated on the chart below in both 30" and 60" lengths. applied in the medical, mechanical, electronic, chemical and aeronautical fields. Hypodermic tubing gauges are based on the Birmingham Gauge, also known as Stubs Iron Wire Gauge, which references the outside diameter. As wall thickness changes for a particular gauge size, the inside diameter changes while the outside diameter remains constant.
Markets & Applications ▼
316 stainless steel hypodermic tubing can be used in air, water, oil, natural gas and chemical circuits. 316 applies particularly for processing equipment in the oil, chemical, food, paper, medical and pharmaceutical industries. This tubing can be incorporated into any standard liquid or gas circuit using our hypodermic tubing adaptor ferrules.
