Default 8" OD stainless tubing

Looking for 8" OD thin wall (around 11 ga) 304 or 316 tubing. Need three to six feet. Felker in Wisconsin makes it but wants $100 crate fee on top of the cost of the tube. Must be 8" OD tube not pipe (8 5/8" OD)

Anybody know of any sources that may have drops?

Thanks.

8" tube is a tough one. Most process plants use sch 10 when they get up that big. 8" tube is high $ stuff.

$40 to $50 per foot is what we're finding.

A little test filter. The tube will be used for the vessel, clear plastic tube for show and steel or stainless tube when the fluid being filtered would attack the plastic.

Could try Columbia pipe or galloup. That is generally where we get our pipe from. Could also try northland process piping. They are a large stainless piping contracter and may have any drops. If it was smaller or sch 10-80 I could help you out.

Etna Supply
Columbia pipe
The Macomb group
J.O. Galloup Company

All major pipe vendors.

Please note, O.D. tube 8-inch is very rare, that is why it is expensive.

If it were me and I was going to be making very many of these filters I would figure out how to do it out of 8" sch 10. Way cheaper and more readily available.

Maybe try a heavy truck junkyard. There might be some semi tractors with 8 inch stacks.

Rong. Its for a pair of stacks like this. Single stacks just look goofy.


The plastic tube is driving the design that is why its 8 OD.
O-rings seal on the outside of the tube so a weld seam or any deformities on the outside of the tube are not going to fly.

Thanks for the sources. We normally use Galloup, Ferguson and Satterlund depending upon what piping products we're buying. Looks like Northern might be useful for some other work we farm out.

Try this place. I have used them a lot. They will cut to any length, and have a random drop section.
