Precision grinding of both inside and outside diameter of tubing up to 0.375″
Specialized grinders cut almost any angle on tube diameters producing razor-sharp ends.
Grinding, combined with cyclical electro-polishing creates a smooth finish.
We cut and grind to your specifications and work with you to get the end result you are looking for. Prototyping is something we like to see, talk to us about your specific project. There is no project too small.

At Colorado HypoTube we perform both Citric & Nitric chemical passivation as defined by ASTM A-380 and ASTM A967 as well at electro-chemical processing of stainless steel tube, wire and parts. These passivation processes are used for cleaning, descaling and sanitation of stainless steel.
Pre-cleaning is an important part of the process. Grease, oils, biologic and chemical contaminants should be removed before the acidic immersion process.
Most jobs at Colorado HypoTube, Inc. are passivated in a Citric solution based
on CitriSurf 22.
Proper agitation and temperature control is also vital to the process. The solution needs to be maintained at the proper temperature and some form of agitation must be applied during the immersion cycle. At Colorado HypoTube we use heated ultrasonic tanks in the passivation process so the parts are assured to have complete, consistent coverage of the solution.
Several thorough rinses in Deionized water leaves a virtual spot-free finish. Parts and tubes and are generally dried at 230°F to assure all surfaces are dry before shipment.
