Nuclear Control Rod Tubes
Superior Tube has a long history of supplying high quality metal tubing to the nuclear power industry going right back to its inception after World War II. It’s an area where strict compliance and integrity are absolutely critical. We have a track record of developing new solutions and helping the nuclear energy sector to advance.
Our tubes are deployed in the cores of nuclear reactors, where they must endure in an extremely demanding environment for the entire life cycle of each reactor. Control rod and cladding tubing are critical safety components, as they are responsible for controlling the nuclear reaction and energy output within the core. Superior currently produces control rod tubing from 1.0” in outside diameter down to around .250” OD. If you have demand of products within or outside of this range, please contact us so we can provide a solution.
