A Closer Look at Stainless Steel Tubes

Posted on January 30, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

Stainless steel tubes come in many different shapes and sizes.

For some people going to the dentist stirs up feelings of anxiousness and fear.  It brings up memories of being lectured about brushing and flossing properly in a similar scolded manner as when your teacher used to send you to the principal’s office.  But some of that fear could be diminished significantly when you realize the dental and medical equipment is made from stainless steel metal.

Why Steel Tubing is Right for Medical, Dental and Automotive

Stainless steel is a strong, stain resistant metal.  This metal is an ideal choice for a dentist or medical office.  If you look around your dentist’s office you see these machines pumping fluids and gas.  Inside these machines are circular tubes pushing the material through.  These are forms of steel tubing.  It is the same kind of tubing you find in exhaust pipes, engines and other necessary automotive parts.  These tubes are also effective in producing needles, hydraulic systems and fuel lines.  There is a wide array of techniques to create these tubes out of steel metal.  In some cases, manufacturers take a flat round disc of sheet metal and spin it on a horizontal surface.  This process is known as spinning.  There is another way to create steel metal tubes through a series of piercing a rod to form a circular, hollow show.  This is the most common method to create stainless steel tubing with attention to exact measurements, details and customized orders.

Duplex stainless steel pipes are used in offshore processes in the Oil and Gas Industry.

Stainless steel seems to be a hot topic in the press lately.  The media has been highlighting how stainless steel is a wise decision when choosing to “go green” at the office and/or home.  So what are the different uses for stainless steel tubes?  How can you incorporate stainless steel into your next construction project?  Here we take an inside look at two types of stainless steel tubes and their uses.

Heat Exchanger Tubes

Heat exchanger tubes are used in a wide array of industries including chemical, nuclear and natural gas processing.  They are designed for heat transfer processes and mostly applied in heating, cooling, condensation and evaporation of liquids, gases and steam.  Heat exchanger tubes are always a cold finished product and they are known to be extremely resistant to aggressive mediums such as acid.

Duplex Stainless Steel Pipes

The Oil and Gas Industry understands the numerous benefits to using duplex stainless steel pipes.  For instance, it has superb resistance to an extensive variety of corrosive mediums found in both offshore and onshore locations.  The other benefit is its elevated strength holds up under high pressures confronted at great depths.  Think undersea extractions.

2 Benefits to Building with Steel

Posted on November 21, 2011 by Reda Abouleish


Builders are always thinking of new ways to create sustainable and durable structures.  They are thinking of ways to keep the environment safe while matching the needs of consumers.  Going green is at the forefront of their mind but so is cost.  With the economy in a slump, builders are trying to find cost-effective means to deliver a high quality product without breaking the bank.  A material that assists builders in addressing these concerns is steel.


Steel is a material that lasts through the most extreme temperatures and weather.  There is little to no risk of a building falling apart when natural disasters strike.  The steel remains intact providing the client with peace of mind.  Additionally, when choosing stainless steel there is no risk of the material decaying like wood or attracting termites or rodents.  Stainless steel is a solid choice when building different venues, living spaces, office buildings, medical centers, storage areas and more.

Cost Effective

Working with steel decreases your overall costs.  It reduces the amount of subcontractors needed to work on your project.  You do not need roofers, framers and siding contractors.  This keeps your projected completion time on track.  The less people to worry about the better you are at time management.  The delays are minimized ensuring you are not wasting money on unexpected additional time and labor.  This is a significant advantage over other materials.
