If you are looking for a stainless-steel tube that fits specific requirements, the fabrication process is the easiest way to get it. There are plenty of companies that provide traditional steel tubing, including variations with simple bends. However, there are many occasions when you can’t just go to any supplier for standardized tubing. Sometimes you need something very specific like a tube with a tight radius or complicated bend. In addition, this may involve precise welding and fabrication. Regardless of whether it is stand-alone custom parts or part of a larger machine or fabrication, Detroit Tube Products is your go-to source for stainless steel tube fabrication!
You might be wondering why stainless steel is such a popular material for tubes. First of all, let’s clarify what this steel is. Regular steel is an alloy combination of iron and carbon. However, stainless is a low-carbon steel that has at least 10.5% of chromium. The additional chromium allows this steel to appear stainless and have unique properties. Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant as well. Depending on the alloy grade, this steel can resist acids, alkaline solutions, and chlorine. Stainless Steel can also be fire and heat-resistant, maintaining its strength in high temperatures.
In addition to all of its resistances, stainless steel has an aesthetic appearance that is both modern and attractive. It’s extremely hygienic as well, making it perfect for industries that need to meet specific hygiene standards such as hospitals and food processing plants.
However, the best part is how easy it is to use this material in fabrication! Stainless steel has formability and machinability that allows for versatility in the fabrication process. This takes other steel tube fabrication to the next level.
All the unique properties that this steel provides make it essential for a variety of applications. There are plenty of industries that need stainless steel tubes, including industries that we serve! Some have very interesting applications like:
Although many believe that stainless steel fabrication will be too expensive, its long-term value makes it the least expensive material on the market. Its long-life expectancy exceeds carbon steel and aesthetically it is unmatched. For that special project or production contact the experts at Detroit Tube Products!
