Razor-Edge Tubing | Colorado HypoTube, Inc.

Here at Colorado HypoTube we offer precision grinding of both inside and outside diameter of tubing up to 0.375.”
Our specialized grinders cut almost any angle on tube diameters
producing razor sharp ends.
Grinding, combined with cyclical Electro-Polishing creates a smooth bright finish.

Electro-Polishing | Colorado HypoTube | Westminster

We offer Electro-Polishing at Colorado HypoTube:

Electro-Polishing is a process that involves submerging a stainless steel part into a solution of Phosphoric acid and other chemicals while applying an electrical current. Variables include time, temperature and current that interact with the total surface area of the part being treated.

Electro-Polishing can be used to clean, shape or polish stainless steel as required and always leaves the part passivated and free of contaminates.

Variations in current and temperature can be manipulated to round edges, remove burrs or even bring parts to a sharp point. HypoTube can be brought to a razor edge with skillful application of this process.

Passivation | Colorado HypoTube, Inc

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.

Our daily need for passivation within our own processes means our systems are always at the ready to passivate your parts quickly and efficiently. And that equates to short turnaround times and ultra-competitive prices for all your passivation needs.
