Chicago Tube

  • Chicago Tube
  • Romeoville, IL
  • Extra Large Weldment with Tight Tolerances

48" diameter, 240" long out of 10 gauge 304 stainless. We fabricated 4 cylinders and welded them end to end to get to the specified length. Inside was #4 mirror finish.

large weldment, tight tolerances, special finishes


Customer asked if we could fabricate this large part within 1/32" tolerance on diameter and length.


At this length a tolerance of 1/8" is more realistic


Using our new facility's crane and material handling equipment we were able to use fixtures to meet the customer's requirements with less than 1/8" tolerance.


The client called us and said the end product far exceeded their expectations.
