Proper tubing is essential to the
performance of a tubing system.
Consider a system's pressure, flow,
temperature, environment and
compatibility with the process
fluids when choosing the tubing
material, size and wall thickness.
The wall thickness
selection should be based on the
operating pressure, temperature and
shock conditions. Fully annealed
tubing is recommended. Stainless
Steel Tubing having a hardness of
less than Rockwell Rb90 should be
