Instrumentation Tubing

High quality, low-carbon austenitic stainless steel tubing manufactured to instrumentation and hydraulic standards. Sandvik® tubes are noted for their quality and low lifecycle costs for the following reasons:

  • Sandvik® control every step in the tube production process, ensuring consistent quality in the product.
  • Sandvik® have well-equipped corrosion testing laboratories, used for research purposes and for control of the influence of the production
  • High surface smoothness and close dimensional tolerances ensure there are no leakages when connecting straight tubes with couplings.
  • Sandvik® products are characterised by the ovality, eccentricity and controlled hardness required for superior performance for hydraulic and instrumentation systems.

All Sandvik® Materials Technology products are Quality Assured to BS EN ISO 9001 : 2000

  • Grade 316L seamless stainless steel tube compliant with ASTM A269
  • Higher molybdenum content – minimum 2.5% compared with minimum of 2.0% – than ASTM 316L standard
  • Corrosion properties and pitting resistance are much improved by high molybdenum content

Typical Applications:

  • Process
  • Oil
  • Electronic
  • Chemical
  • Food Manufacture
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Engineering

Sandvik® seamless stainless steel tubes are also well-suited for other applications where smooth surfaces and tight tolerances are required.
