Crafting Excellence: The Precision and Quality Behind Our Polished Stainless Steel Tubing

By Brian Piekarski, Owner of Badger Sanitary and Stainless

In the intricate world of stainless steel tubing, precision and quality are not just buzzwords; they are the pillars on which every product is meticulously crafted. As the owner of Badger Sanitary and Stainless, I am excited to share the distinctive features of our polished stainless steel tubing – a testament to our commitment to excellence.

Precision Manufacturing by Stringent Standards:

Our polished tube is not just a product; it’s a result of adherence to the highest industry standards. Manufactured in accordance with ASTM A270 and 3A sanitary standards, our tubing undergoes a meticulous process that ensures it meets and exceeds the expectations of precision and cleanliness required in industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, and dairy.

Enhanced Weldability for Seamless Joints:

Quality begins with the choice of materials. Our tubing is made from cold-rolled stainless steel strips with specially controlled chemical elements to enhance weldability. This deliberate control ensures that our tubes facilitate seamless joints, contributing to the overall structural integrity of the final product.

Virtually Undetectable Longitudinal Weld:

The weld bead is cold-worked to a full finished condition, resulting in a virtually undetectable longitudinal weld. This attention to detail not only adds to the aesthetic appeal of the tubing but also eliminates potential weak points, ensuring a high level of reliability and performance.

Bright Annealing for Structural Integrity:

To further enhance structural integrity, our tubes undergo bright annealing to a minimum of 1,900°F in a controlled atmosphere. This meticulous process preserves the material’s strength and corrosion resistance, crucial factors in industries where the integrity of components is paramount.

Mechanical Polishing for Impeccable Finishes:

Our commitment to excellence extends to the surface finish of our tubing. Using Sanitube’s state-of-the-art process, the tubes are mechanically polished to a 180 grit (20 μ-in. Ra maximum) interior and a 150 grit (32 μ-in. Ra maximum) exterior finish. This ensures a smooth and clean appearance and contributes to improved corrosion resistance.

Detailed Line-Stenciling for Traceability:

Traceability is a key aspect of quality assurance. Each tube is meticulously line-stenciled with essential information, including OD, wall, ASTM specifications, grade, and heat number. This attention to detail facilitates easy traceability, assuring our customers of the quality and specifications of each product.

Transparent Pricing and Weight Structure:

We believe in transparency. Our pricing and weight structure are straightforward – provided per foot. This ensures that our customers clearly understand the costs associated with our top-notch polished stainless steel tubes.

In conclusion, our polished stainless steel tube is more than a component; it’s a testament to our unwavering commitment to precision, quality, and excellence. At Badger Sanitary and Stainless, we take pride in delivering products that not only meet industry standards but also set a benchmark for craftsmanship and reliability.
