What Are The Key Features of Capillary Tubes?
Capillary Tubes are the tubes of small internal diameter that holds liquid in it by capillary action while Capillary Tubing is a conduit consisting of a long hollow object (usually cylindrical in shape) which is used to hold liquids or gasses. This tubing can be manufactured with the help of a number of material.
Capillary Seamless Tubing is available in a number of materials such as stainless steel, nickel alloys and titanium. Stainless Steel Capillary Tubes are characterized by their tight tolerances and an inside surface that is free from oil, grease and other particles. Refrigeration and Air conditioning systems are the major areas of Capillary Tubes uses.
High Precision Capillary Tubes are cut to pre-determined lengths so that these tubes can hold a known fluid volume when filled. Advantages of using High Precision Capillary Tubes as the throttling device in the refrigeration and the air conditioning systems is that it is a simple device that can be manufactured easily and it reduces the maximum amount of the refrigerant that can be charged in the refrigeration system.
Capillary Tubes function are notable in Instrumentation systems which includes manometers, differential pressure transducers, Bourdon-tube gauges, Pressure meters & sensors among others. The most commended feature of these tubes sturdy construction, easy installation and dimensional accuracy apart from the high corrosion resistance. These features combined with reliable and robust performance allow it to be used in thermometers.
Capillary Welded Tubing also has a highly commendable tensile strength of 760 MPa, with a wall thickness ranging between 0.03 mm to 1 mm. They are offered in various sizes such as 2 inch, 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 3/4 inch, 3 inch etc. by various manufacturers. All the products are offered in 200, 300, 400, 900 Series and all of them meet the Capillary Tube specification.
