Specialty Coil Solutions & Custom Tube Assemblies
HBR Industries, Inc. uses the best engineering practices, proven manufacturing tools, and first rate man power capabilities to create specialty coils and custom tube assemblies for all applications. Our expertise lies in turning customer designs into tangible products.
Working from customer design specs, HBR manufactures custom coils and custom tube/rod assemblies to meet even the most complex requirements. Thanks to our precision manufacturing capabilities, there is essentially no limit to the style of custom coil we can produce. Custom and specialty coil types we produce include:
Coils & Tube /Rod Assemblies that Meet YOUR Requirements
HBR focuses on low volume production runs and prototypes for unique, specialized projects. All our custom tube/rod assemblies and specialty coils are made to order and manufactured to our customers’ exact design specifications.
We can create custom coils with odd or non-standard shapes, close tolerances, and other unique characteristics, as your design dictates. RF match coils, copper cooling coils, and other custom coils are complex components, and HBR knows what it takes to get the job done right.
How Do I Know What Tube or Coil Material to Use?
There is no one “perfect” material for all applications. So how do you know what material is right for your specialty coils and custom tube assemblies?
For the most part, material selection depends on two factors: what media your tube/rod coil assembly will be transmitting, and what function it will serve. For example, stainless steel’s natural corrosion resistance makes it ideal for use in harsh or corrosive environments; thanks to its inherent conductivity, copper is the preferred material for RF match coils and similar applications.
Stainless Steel 304 & 316
HBR can provide stainless steel 304 or 316 as an option for your tube/rod coiling applications. HBR usually will do ½” O.D. (outside diameter) and under for stainless steel tube/ rod. The most common form of 304 stainless steel is 18-8, or 18/8, stainless steel, which contains 18 percent chromium and 8 percent nickel. The main benefits of 304 is that it is a lower cost corrosion and oxidation resistance option. Stainless 304 can withstand corrosion from most oxidizing acids. 304 is easy to sanitize, so it is regularly used for manufacturing kitchen equipment, wheel covers, stainless hardware, storage tanks, along with many other applications.
Stainless 316 is composed of 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum. 316, with its increased nickel content, has better corrosion and oxidation resistance over 304. Stainless 316 is also chlorine resistant. 316 stainless steel is commonly used in many industrial applications involving processing chemicals, as well as high-saline environments such as coastal regions and outdoor areas where de-icing salts are common. Due to its non-reactive qualities, 316 stainless steel is also used in the manufacturing of medical-surgical instruments.
