Sunbelt Stud Welding

Sunbelt Tubing Spacer (STS)


Sunbelt Stud Welding has partnered with Deepwater Corrosion Services, Inc. in the manufacturing of a specially configured non-corrosive, UV resistant and rigid thermoplastic (I-Rod) for the Sunbelt Tubing Spacer (STS).

Specially designed notches allow separation between and air flow under the metal tubing, thus ensuring no moisture is collected eliminating possible corrosion or puncture damage caused by shock or vibration.

Sunbelt Tubing Spacer (STS) I-Rod - Technical Specifications.

These notches also ensure any tubing diameter securely stays in place without any metal surface touching the pneumatic tubing.

The Sunbelt Multi-Option Hanger (SMO) and Sunbelt Tubing Spacer (STS) can be combined for custom situations depending on your particular needs and application.

Please contact us for technical assistance.
