Fine Tubes is a leading global manufacturer of high precision metal tubing in a wide range of stainless steel, nickel, titanium and zirconium alloys. The company has the unique capability to manufacture tubes in seamless, welded or welded and redrawn form, in straight lengths or coils, used in critical nuclear applications.

  • Stainless steel, nickel, titanium and zirconium alloys
  • Seamless, welded or welded & redrawn (Weldrawn®) finish
  • Size range up to 50 mm (2 in) outside diameter
  • Straight lengths up to 65 ft. (20 m) and coils up to 33,000 ft. (10,000 m) long

Nuclear applications

Our high precision seamless, welded and redrawn tubing ensure high quality, long life-cycles and safety in supercritical nuclear applications including

  • Primary and Field Instrumentation
  • Control Rod Drive Mechanism
  • Fuel Cans or Cladding Tubes
  • Flux Thimble Guide Tubes
  • In-Core Heat Exchangers
  • Steam Generators

Instrumentation Tubes

Instrumentation tubing is deployed in the nuclear and turbine islands of nuclear reactors and encases equipment monitoring various parameters such as pressure and temperature.

Nuclear Fuel Tubes (Cans)

We manufacture nuclear fuel tubes (cans) in stainless steel (20/25Nb) and zirconium alloys (704 - UNS R60704) in seamless form. Deployed in the fuel cans of Advanced Gas-cooled Reactors, our tubes withstand extreme heat, pressure and radiation.

Heat Exchanger Tubes

Fine Tubes supplies thin wall heat exchanger products in Nickel alloys, Duplex and Super duplex as seamless, welded or welded redrawn form.

Condenser Tubes

Fine Tubes has the flexibility to produce thin wall condenser tubing in seamless, welded and welded redrawn formats in the following grades:

  • Titanium (Ti CP Grade 2) in seamless only.
  • Duplex (S31803)

Cooling Tubes

We supply seamless stainless steel stator bars used for water and hydrogen cooling in generators within the turbine island.

Global presence

Along with US-based sister mill Superior Tube, Fine Tubes exports products to over 35 countries worldwide, offering 70 plus years of engineering expertise to support global customers in developing competitive tubing solutions for their toughest technical challenges.
