Other stainless steel grades are available upon customer's request.
Younglee's stainless steel high purity tubing usually is supplied with bright annealed surface and mechanical polished surface, and our stainless steel Ultra-high purity tubing (UHP tube) has an electropolished inside surface finishing of roughness max Ra 0.25µm ( 10 µin.) .
|Surface Treatment||Inner Surface Roughness||Outer Surface Roughness|
|Bright Annealed (BA)||Ra 0.4μm (16Ra) to Ra 0.8μm (32Ra) upon request|
Ra 0.8μm max
|Mechanically Polished (MP)||Ra 0.4μm (16Ra) to Ra 0.8μm (32Ra)upon request||Ra 0.8μm max |
or upon request
|ElectroPolished (EP)||EP SS tubing with Ra 0.25μm (10Ra) Max.||Ra 0.8μm max |
or upon request
All the high purity & ultra high purity (UHP) tubes are with ends capped with PVC caps; every BA tube is packed individually in a single polyethylene bag, and EP stainless steel tubing (electropolished stainless steel tubing) is individually double bagged, then bulk bagged in a clean room, and then packed in wooden cases.
As a professional high purity tubing manufacturer & supplier, Younglee manufactures and supplies both imperial size and metric size of high purity tubing. Here below is some popular sizes.

Questions & Answers
UHP tubing is the short for Ultra High Purity tubing. UHP tubing usually is electropolished stainless steel tubing with ultra high purity, cleanliness and smoothness inner surface. The inner surface roughness of UHP tubing can be as good as Ra0.25 μm or 10RA(10μin). The most popular material for UHP tubes is stainless steel 316L (EN 1.4404).
Our high performance stainless steel tubing factory is a leading China High purity & Ultra-high purity tubing manufacturer. Our high purity & UHP tubing has advantages as below.
- Top quality raw materials
Our raw material stainless steel are from China top quality stainless steel manufacturers such as Baosteel, Tisco, Youngxing.
- TQM Quality Management system to ensure the quality
All working process are under control by our Total Quality Management system, which ensures the quality of the high purity & UHP tubes and pipes 100% meet customers’ requirements.
- Our factory has a variety of professional inspection facilities, including:
Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM),Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy(EDS), Particle Counter, Surface Roughness Gauge, Micro Vickers, Metallography Microscope, Moisture Analyzer, Tensile Testing Machined etc.
- Our UHP & high purity tubes and pipes are with high purity, high cleanliness, and high smoothness.
- High corrosion resistant performance
- Suitable for orbital welding
- Full size range and accept customized size
- Flexible and fast delivery time
If customer agrees or wishes, we will mark each tube with laser marking, the marking usually including:
- Manufacturer Name: Younglee (if the customer wants, we can also mark with themselves’ company name)
- Corresponding Standard as: ASTM A269/ A632/ A270; EN 10216-5
- Steel Grade: 316L / 1.4404
- Dimension: O.D(outer diameter) x W.T (wall thickness) x length
- Heat Number.
If the customer wish, the above markings will be on the packing bags or with a label. This is sometimes for the electro-polished stainless steel tubing.
Each tube will be capped in the ends with plastic caps, for BA and EP high purity tubing, every tube is packed individually in a single polyethylene bag; and every UHP electropolished tubing will be packed in double polyethylene bags. And then the well packed tubes will be put into a wooden case.
We can pack the high purity stainless steel tubing and ultra-high purity SS tubing in an class 10 clean room.
Our Bright annealed and electropolished (EP) high purity tubes & pipes are chemically cleaned and passivated to keep nonvolatile residue levels to comply with ASTM G93 or SEMI E 49.6.
The Ultra-High Purity (UHP) tubes &pipes are rinsed with 18MΩ di water and purged with 99.9995% filtered nitrogen and are packed in an class 10 clean room.
