This 304/304L stainless steel dual-certified round tubing is suitable fortransport of fluids and gases in food processing environments. The tubing iswelded and drawn for a smoother bore than non-drawn welded tubing and a moreconsistent wall thickness than seamless tubing. It has greater corrosionresistance than 302 stainless steel and is annealed to restore formability forbending or flaring. This welded and drawn round tubing meets American Societyfor Testing and Materials (ASTM) A269 specifications for quality assurance andis suitable for use in applications such as transporting beer, wine, and milk. Metal tubing, also called fractional tubing, is used to transfer liquids, air,or solids, and it is characterized by a round shape and a hollow center. Metaltubing is commonly made with various grades of austenitic stainless steel,aluminum, copper, brass, and titanium materials and their alloys. Constructiontypes include seamless, welded, or welded and drawn. Seamless tubing has noseam or weld point, which enables it to better withstand high pressure andresist corrosion. Welded tubing, made by rolling and welding metal sheetstock, is weaker than and not as rounded as seamless tubing, but it has a moreconsistent wall thickness for tighter wall tolerances. Welded and drawntubing, also known as “drawn over mandrel” (DOM), is typically welded tubingthat is drawn through a die and over a mandrel to create a smooth innerdiameter, which gives the tubing comparable corrosion resistance to seamlesstubing while still offering welded tubing’s tighter wall tolerances.Compression, vacuum, sanitary, and flared fittings connect tubing or redirectflow in a fluid handling system. Metal tubing is used in HVAC and plumbingsystems and for applications in the aerospace, automotive, chemicalprocessing, food and beverage, manufacturing, and medical industries.
