Information About our Thin wall Stainless Steel Vacuum Tubing 

304 Stainless Steel is strong and does not corrode like carbon steel. 304 Stainless tubing does not need to be painted like carbon steel to protect it from corrosion. 304 Grade stainless steel vacuum tubing is also known as A2 steel in Europe and the far east. Here are a few examples of how stainless vacuum tubing can be used; 

      Prevent corrosion

      FDA Applications Food Applications

      Prevent contamination or bacteria

      Recycling a valuable product 

In the processing industry, 304 stainless steel plays a big part in moving materials through a plant in order to be processed. The materials are typically moved by dense phase, pneumatic conveying, pressure or vacuum conveying methods. Our thin wall stainless tubing can be used for any of these processes.


There are several methods of making 304 stainless tubing. One method of making the stainless steel tubing is by extrusion.  The extrusion process is the best way to make 304 stainless steel tubing because the tolerances of the process can be controlled to very fine precision.  Another method of making 304 stainless steel tubing is by rolling the tubing on a series of dies to form a round part. This method of making 304 stainless steel tubing is also called cold forming. Once the 304 stainless steel tubing is formed into a round shape it is then welded together. After the 304 stainless steel tubing is welded it is typically trimmed to remove any burrs that may have occurred during the welding process. The tolerance of the materials is not as good as the extrusion or seem less method. However, the roll welded method keeps the cost affordable. There are two or three methods used to weld the 304 stainless steel tubing together. One of the methods to weld the stainless steel is butt welding. This method of welding the stainless requires a high current and can be very capital extensive. Another method of welding 304 stainless steel tubing together is electric arc wire welding. This is more economical and is the preferred method of welding 304 stainless steel tubing. Our stainless tubing is acceptable for any pneumatic conveying or vacuum application that utilizes 304 stainless steel tubing.
 Our couplings and fittings are rated for 15 PSI for use in vacuum or pressure applications.
