Multiple tube mills and unmatched flexibility

Using state-of-the-art mills, we have the ability to produce large diameter, light-wall tubing. As this is a difficult process requiring very specific equipment, we are one of only a few companies in America that offer this kind of tubing. Furthermore, our mills are capable of producing smaller round tubing as well as square and rectangular tubing that can be manufactured to fit nearly any application. This flexibility ensures that, no matter what your needs are, we can produce tubing to your precise specifications.

In-house laboratory and on-staff metallurgist

At Sterling Pipe & Tube, we understand that quality is paramount. We know that our clients rely on us to deliver dependable, high-quality tubing and we take that responsibility seriously. As a result, we employ a full-time metallurgist to analyze the quality of our steel and assist customers in finding the correct grade for their needs. Within our in-house laboratory, we also perform a series of tests such as coating analysis, micro hardness profiling, weld characterization, corrosion analysis and more. With the assistance of our metallurgist and laboratory, we are able to provide a level of assurance to our customers that is simply unmatched in the industry.

Here at Sterling Pipe & Tube, we don’t just want to meet our customers’ needs, we want to exceed them. Our dedication to client satisfaction is evidenced by our commitment to ensuring the quality of every steel tube that we sell.
