Stainless Steel Tube/Rod Coiling
HBR Industries, Inc. produces stainless steel tube/rod coils to help meet the needs of your customer’s application requirements. Our technical capabilities and years of experience enable us to provide custom stainless steel tube/rod coiling to match your exact design specifications.
Stainless Steel Tube/Rod Coils Made to Your Specifications
HBR Industries, Inc., works with stainless steel tube up to 1/2” in outer diameter, and can produce bends and coils within or beyond the normal tolerances of the tubing itself. All common grades and alloys can be used in stainless steel tube/rod coiling, and we can assist you in selecting and obtaining the ideal material for your application. No matter what your design requires, we have the capabilities to produce custom stainless steel tube coils for your unique needs.
Stainless Steel 304 & 316
HBR Industries, Inc., now offers stainless steel 304 or 316 seamless or welded as an option for your tube/rod coiling applications. 304 stainless steel is the most common form of stainless steel used around the world, largely due to its excellent corrosion resistance and value. It contains between 16 and 24 percent chromium and up to 35 percent nickel, as well as small amounts of carbon and manganese. The main benefits of 304 are that it is a lower cost corrosion and oxidation resistance option. Stainless 304 is regularly used for manufacturing kitchen equipment, wheel covers, stainless hardware, storage tanks, along with many other applications.
On the other hand, 316 is the second-most common form of stainless steel. It has almost the same physical and mechanical properties as 304 stainless steel and contains a similar material make-up. However, the key difference is that 316 stainless incorporates about 2 to 3 percent molybdenum. The addition increases corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides and other industrial solvents. In addition, stainless 316 is also chlorine resistant. Due to 316’s superior corrosion resistance, it is commonly used for outdoor structures, high saline environments, and medical-surgical instruments.
Stainless Steel Tube Coil Applications
Stainless steel tube/rod coils are ideal for use in potentially corrosive environments and for transferring liquids and gases for cooling, heating, and other purposes.

What’s the Difference Between Tube & Rod?
A tube is generally defined as any long, hollow cylinder used to transmit fluids, liquids, or gases. Tubes can also be used to deliver electricity to protected electrical or optical cables/wires. It is usually thought of as being straight or mostly straight, though tube can be bent into numerous angles to direct it where it needs to go.
Rod is generally defined as a think straight solid bar, stick, and pole made of wood or metal.
Coil, in this case, is a Tube or Rod that has been bent, curved, wound, or otherwise formed around a hollow “center,” into something resembling an oversized spring. The individual layers or levels of a coil may or may not touch each other; the distance between each successive layer is called the pitch. Depending on design requirements, tube coil may or may not include spacers between each level to maintain the proper pitch. Coils are preferable to multi-piece piping that may be used for the same purpose because the lack of joints provides a more secure, leak-free path for the media that is being transmitted. Coils also reduce friction, allowing for increased flow rates.
