Tube vs. Pipe
Taking the time to select the right material for your system will save you time, maintenance, and money. Many facilities depend on fluid delivery sent through piping systems. Unfortunately, cutting, welding, and threading hard pipe is not a quick process. It is slow and labor intensive. A better alternative may be stainless steel tubing. Stainless steel tubing, instead of hard pipe, can greatly simplify installation and plant maintenance. That's why Swagelok Michigan | Toledo created this guide designed to supply you with the knowledge you need to make an educated decision. With all of these resources, you can create a system that fits your exact needs.
