For Antibacterial 304 Stainless Steel Pipe, the Thinner of the Wall, the More Expensive It is?

May 24 2023

I don’t know if there’s any doubt when we buy the same material of antibacterial stainless steel pipe in the market, we will be surprised that the price about thin-walled and thick-walled are different. It’s not what we had in mind, the former is actually more expensive than the latter. Why is that?

Except for the material, the precision and the surface, there are a number of factors to consider in determining the price of a product. As for304 stainless pipe, thickness of the wall is also an important factor affecting its price. Under the same circumstance, generally speaking, the price of thin-walled are higher than thick-walled. Cost is the main problem.

1. Theproblem about calendering

Calendering process is a very important technology in the manufacture of stainless steel pipe, and the technology of the product has a great impact on its price. The exact thickness of stainless steel tube can not be separated from the quality of its steel strip calendering, however, the cost of calendering is divided according to the difference in thickness. So the input cost varies with the thickness of the strip. If the thinner thickness and more precise calendering are required, then it will require more processing fees. This leads to increase price with the thin-walled of304steel pipedirectly.

2. Theproblem about rate of finished product

Each pipe of thickness has its own range, it will affect the success rate of production. When the actual thickness is 0.40mm and above it, this kind of precision stainless steel pipe is more popular. The rate of finished products of such pipes is relatively high in the process of pipe making and polishing. But the truth is that customer needs are constantly changing, some will require thin-walled tubes. Something like that stainless steel precision pipe of the actual thickness is 0.25mm to 0.31mm, the steel strip is relatively thin, it needs a lot of making and polishing, therefore,the rate of finished product becomes lower. The higherofthe rejection rate, the more expensive it is.

3. Theproblem about rate ofdamage

The thinnerofthe product, the more likely it is to break. Somestainless steel 304 pipesof thin-walled will be damaged during storage and transportation, because of the force majeure. Because it has a thin inner wall, damage is inevitable no matter what the manufacturer does to protect it. The rate of damage with thin tube is higher than that of thick tube. This involves the issue of compensation for damage, so the price of thin-walled tube will be very expensive.
