Autoclave Engineers offers a complete selection of austenitic, cold drawn stainless steel tubing designed to match the performance standards of Autoclave valves and fittings. Autoclave high pressure tubing is manufactured specifically for high pressure applications requiring both strength and corrosion resistance. The tubing is furnished in random lengths between 20 feet (6 meters) and 27 feet (8.2 meters). The average is 24 feet (7.3 meters). High pressure tubing is available in five sizes and a variety of materials. Special longer lengths are available. Consult factory.
Inspection and Testing
Autoclave Engineer’s high pressure tubing is inspected to assure freedom from seams, laps, fissures or other flaws, as well as carburization or intergranular carbide precipitation. The outside and inside diameters of the tubing are controlled within close tolerances. Sample pieces of tubing for each lot are tested to confirm mechanical properties. Hydrostatic testing is also performed on a statistical basis and is conducted at the working pressure of the tube. Autoclave will perform 100% hydrostatic testing at additional cost if desired.
In addition to the type 316 and 304 stainless steel tubing listed in this section, Autoclave has limited stock of hard-to-obtain shorter lengths of the following tubing materials in some sizes: Monel 400*, Inconel 600*, Titanium Grade 2*, Nickel 200*, Hastelloy C276* - (* Trademark names)
