Milling About: Stainless Steel Tubing

I think if we ever got to see a list of everything into which stainless steel is incorporated, and all of the products made from stainless steel it would be an overwhelming sight. That is because we rely so heavily on stainless steel for its durability, adaptability, style, and integrity. Stainless steel doesn’t just appear ready-made, however; there is a lot of work that goes on to make stainless steel as fabulous as it is. Continue reading

Stainless Steel and the Space Program

With the nature of the United States’ ambitions for space exploration changing, I wonder how much the number of lab experiments will increase. Granted, NASA has always done experiments in labs to determine how something might or might not work once it’s in space, but now that the Space Program as we knew it over the last half-century has changed, will NASA continue to conduct all manner of interesting experiments where recreating the conditions of space is the name of the game?

The Business of Stainless Steel Tube Manufacturing

When nurturing and maintaining a successful business, stainless steel tube manufacturers, like any manufacturer, have two separate but essential features to consider: the factory workers and the sales team; both must be given an equal amount of reflection and respect, because both are vital to how well any given manufacturer will do. As a lack of demand for stainless steel tubing is not going to happen any time soon—even despite a suffering economy—stainless steel tube manufacturers will maintain a level of relevancy in today’s modern society and so will will only have each other to compete against. A stainless steel tube manufacturer that provides a healthy, happy work environment for both its factory workers and sales team will, no doubt, be more successful than one that does not.

Why Stainless Steel? Facts, Applications and Compositions by Eagle Stainless Tube

The many unique values provided by stainless steel make it a powerful candidate in materials selection. Engineers, specifiers and designers often underestimate or overlook these values because of what is viewed as the higher initial ost of stainless steel. However, over the total life of a project, stainless is often the best value option. Stainless steel is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at 10% or more by weight. It is the addition of chromium that gives the steel its unique stainless, corrosion resisting properties. The chromium content of the steel allows the formation of a tough, adherent, invisible, corrosion-resisting chromium oxide film on the steel surface. If damaged mechanically or chemically, this film is self-healing, rovided that oxygen, even in very small amounts, is present. The corrosion resistance and other useful properties of the steel are enhanced by increased chromium content and the addition of other elements such as molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen.
