Advantages

Packaging: All Top line electropolished tubing is packaged using protective 6 mil poly sleeving with air tight end caps. The tubing is then packaged in wood or tri-wall corrugated cartons for maximum protection during shipment.

Finish: Electropolished Tubing is standard with a 15Ra max ID and 30 Ra OD (BPE surface finish code SF4). The same product is available with a 10 Ra maximum surface finish ID.

Annealing: All tubing is bright annealed to a minimum of 1900 F (1040° C) and rapidly quenched.

Cleaning: All Top Line electropolished tubing is rinsed with low TOC de-ionized water. The tubing is then dry purged with 99.998% pure Nitrogen which is filtered to .003 micron at the point of use. The cleaning and packaging is done in a class 100 cleanroom. The SF4 tubing meets the 02 cleaning specifications. Certification must be asked for at time of order.

100% BPE Compliant with full material traceability.
