1.4404 Sanitary Stainless Tubes

1.4404 Sanitary Stainless Tubes

The sanitary stainless steel tubes are used for the dairy, food, and beverage industries require a higher purity tubing than standard instrumentation grade. Sanitary stainless tubing offers a highly polished ID and OD to ensure cleanliness to prevent particulate entrapment. Baosheng offers a domestic tubing product manufactured which utilizing state-of-the-art TIG  welding or seamless cold drawn process to produce a high quality tube featuring the superior fit and finish quality needed to ensure a problem-free beverage system.

Forming & Welding

A precision cold rolled strip, slit to our specified thickness and width, is fed through a series of contoured roll stands. These progressively form the strip into tubular shape. The formed strip is then fed through the weld box, where a single torch fuses the edges together using a Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding process. Fine control over welding parameters – torch settings, gas flow, material speed, etc – enables us to weld a wide range of specialty alloys while ensuring high integrity of the weld zone. After welding, the as-welded tube shells are then cut to specific lengths and weights according to the final tube requirements.


Annealing is used to soften the metal before further cold working or fabrication processes, and improves the overall metallurgical microstructure of the tube. During tube reduction or cold drawing, it can become hard and somewhat brittle. To be able to draw the tube again, stresses formed during cold working need to be removed to return the material to its normal state.

During annealing the tube is heated to a controlled temperature (up to 1200 ℃) and soak time. Through this process the tube remains in shape, but the grains in the structure of the tube reform into a regular unstressed pattern. The resulting annealed tube is softer and suitable for redrawing.

Our closely controlled annealing and heat treat processes are audited regularly by our nuclear, medical, and aerospace customers.


Drawing and annealing generally results in some degree of bowing, producing a slight bend in the tubing. At Baosheng Tube we use multiple roll mechanical straighteners in the first stage of finishing. The straightener applies pressure and flex to the product in order to remove bends or bows, resulting in a straightness level of 1.00mm per meter, or better. Straightening can introduce slight changes to the size and mechanical properties of the tubing, so these aspects are very carefully controlled during the process.

OD Polishing/Grinding

When specified by our customers, we can polish or grind the outside diameter of their tubes using multiple head belt grinding machines. Polishing is done to improve the cosmetic appearance of the surface, providing a bright, uniform surface finish. Belt grinding is used to remove a small amount of metal from the OD in order to eliminate minor flaws and imperfections, which may result from cold working. Both polishing and grinding reduce the final outside diameter and wall dimensions, so precise controls are used to ensure a uniform size with an extremely high quality surface finish.

ID Grit blasting

Grit blasting is used to condition the ID surface, similar to the way grinding conditions the OD surface. An abrasive medium is forced through the tube using compressed air, resulting in a uniform surface finish free of minor cold working flaws. Grit blasting can alter both the ID size and wall thickness, so once again we use precise controls to ensure a uniform size. An extremely high quality finish is achieved. Non destructive testing and inspection

Baosheng Tube inspects all lots of tubing before shipment to ensure that every aspect of the customer’s order has been met. Our in-house inspection capabilities include:

  • Alloy identity verification (Positive Material Identification, or PMI)
  • Visual inspection
  • Dimensional inspection using non-contact techniques such as laser micrometers and air gages whenever possible
  • Surface roughness testing
  • Immersion ultrasonic testing to exacting standards
  • Encircling coil Eddy Current testing
  • Dye penetrant examination
  • Hydrostatic pressure testing
  • Burst pressure testing
  • Destructive mechanical and metallurgical testing: Yield StrengthUltimate Tensile Strength Elongation Rockwell and Knoop Hardness testing Metallographic analysis for grain size, structure, micro-cleanliness, and flaws Manipulation testing such as bending, flattening, and flaring
  • We also work with several qualified independent labs that can perform additional metallurgical testing not listed above, if required by our customers

All shipments include a full Test Certificate showing all required test results and verifying compliance with the order requirements.


All products will be identified in accordance with you requirements. Stamps usually include information such as our lot number, raw material heat number, dimensions, material and other pertinent information. For many products this information is marked in removable ink along the length of the tubing in the lot. For those products that are too small or too thin, the information can be included on material tags or box labels.


Straight lengths of weldrawn tubing can be individually sleeved in paper or plastic and/or packaged in our unique cardboard spacers to ensure no damage occurs during transit. Coiled weldrawn tubes are horizontally packed using paper or cardboard separators to prevent tube-to-tube contact. All tubing is packed in either wooden crates lined with wax craft paper, tri-wall clay-coated reinforced cases, or standard cardboard boxes. Plastic end caps that prevent foreign material from getting inside the tubes are also available upon request.


When requested, we can arrange for shipment and delivery to your dock, or ship your tubes to a third party and, if needed, can arrange for expedited shipments. We currently export to over 30 countries all over the world and use Incoterms® as our international framework for shipping.
