304 and 316 annealed seamless stainless steel tubing is available in 30"e; and 60Q" lengths. It is suitable for applications demanding higher strengths and tighter tolerances. Without a seam or weld point, this annealed tubing can withstand higher pressure and resist corrosion. This tubing has a high degree of ductility, and therefore has excellent drawing, forming and spinning properties. Because no welding is involved, no microscopic changes occur in the grain structure, and there is less particle accumulation in the tubing. This material can be flared without splitting. Note: the 316 contains less chromium and adds molybdenum making it more effective in resisting corrosion in certain environments. The 304 also has effective corrosion resistance but is more economical than the 316.
Markets & Applications ▼
Critical functions for annealed stainless steel tubing include applications in the following industries:
- Paper manufacturing
- Food processing
- Gas and nuclear
Annealed tubing is an excellent choice for applications where high pressures and exposure to corrosive environments are prevalent. It can also transport liquids and gases in chloride environments. In higher temperature applications where pressure is a concern, this tubing provides a better option than braid reinforced plastic or rubber tubing, such as silicone.
