Zirconium Tube/Pipe Description
Zirconium (Zr) is a silvery metal with a density of 6.52 g/cm3. Zr has a very small neutron absorption cross-section and a relatively high melting point (1855 °C or 3371 °F), making zirconium a great material for nuclear power rods. As more and more people get familiar with Zr and its compound, more applications have been found. Zirconium metal and Zirconium alloys have advantages in specialized chemical environments - primarily acetic and hydrochloric acids. The corrosion resistance of Zirconium comes from a tightly adhered oxide that forms almost instantaneously.
Zirconium Tube and Zirconium Pipe are made of metal zirconium and other metals. Due to the excellent nuclear performance and corrosion resistance of zirconium, zirconium alloy tubes and pipes are often used in nuclear fuel assemblies and internal structures of water-cooled reactors and are important nuclear materials. Pure zirconium tubes and pipes are mainly used to make chemical equipment.

Applications of Zirconium Tube/Pipe
Due to its strength under high temperature and excellent corrosion resistance (especially for acetate acid) zirconium tubes/zirconium pipes are ideal for use in, but not limited to:
-Chemical and biological reactors
-Various corrosive fluid transmission pipeline systems
Packaging of Zirconium Tube/Pipe
SAM's Zirconium Tubes and Zirconium Pipes are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
Comment from our customer
We ordered our zirconium tubing from Stanford Advanced Materials because we were promised delivery in half the time of the other competitive bids. When we received the parts, not only were they on time, but the quality was first-rate. We recommend Stanford Advanced Materials as a company that delivers what they promise!
