High Strength, 304/304L Stainless Steel Tubing
This SAE standard covers both “welded and cold drawn” and “seamless” stainless steel pressure tubing in the as-cold-drawn high strength condition intended for use as high pressure hydraulic lines and other applications requiring corrosion resistance. Welding, brazing, or other thermal processing methods that subject the tube material or assembly to elevated temperatures may compromise the strength of the tubing.
Users and manufacturing committees have requested an SAE document to standardize stainless steel bulk tubing. This document is created to support the SAE need for a stainless steel, bulk tubing standard, which provides users with information and requirements regarding tubing material, dimensions, performance, and recommended attachment methods.
