What are the Advantages of Stainless Steel Tubing?

Is stainless steel a better material for tubing and pipe than carbon steel or brass? Stainless steel tubing offers many advantages over other types of tubing:
  • Corrosion: Stainless steeling tubing is very corrosion-resistant. The chromium in the stainless steel forms a self repairing barrier on the exterior of the steel, resulting in resistance to corrosion.
  • Smaller pipes: Stainless steel pipes are very efficient, so it is possible to use pipes with thinner walls. Because you are able to use thinner pipes, less material is required.
  • Strength: Stainless steel is a very strong metal, so stainless steel pipes are able to withstand damaging and abrasive environments.
