What is instrumentation tubing?

Instrumentation tubing is a type of tubing that is specifically designed and manufactured for use in industrial applications where precise measurement and control of fluids or gases is required. These tubes are commonly made of materials such as stainless steel, copper, or plastic, and are available in a range of sizes, wall thicknesses, and lengths to suit different requirements.

Instrumentation tubing is used in a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverage production, among others. It is commonly used to transport process fluids, as well as to connect instruments such as pressure gauges, flow meters, and temperature sensors to the process system.

Because of their critical role in process control and measurement, instrumentation tubing is manufactured to high standards of quality and precision. They must be able to withstand high pressure, corrosion, and temperature variations, while maintaining accuracy and reliability in the measurement and control of process parameters.
