Major players in both the aerospace and nuclear power industries rely on Superior Tube for precision tubing to protect their control systems and instrumentation. Thousands of feet up in the air, pilots rely on the information provided by pitot tubes in order to reach their destinations safely.
Meanwhile, control and measuring devices critical to the safe functioning of nuclear reactors also require our high quality tubes. Within reactor cores, our instrumentation and control tubing encases equipment for monitoring various factors such as pressure, temperature, density differences and fuel burn up rates. It’s an extremely demanding environment where durability and reliability are absolutely critical.
Superior Tube supplies instrumentation tubing in straight and coiled tube forms. The most common materials used are special grades of stainless steel and nickel alloys. Superior currently produces instrumentation tubing from up to 1.5” in outside diameter down to less than .020” OD.
