Lawton Tubes
All our medical-grade copper tubing is produced and supplied in accordance with the EN 13348 standard.

We became the first British manufacturer to hold this standard back in the 1990’s and have since invested in specialised degreasing equipment to further enhance our cleanliness capabilities.

In 2006 Lawton Tubes invested heavily (in excess of GBP £500,000) on a new degreaser primarily for it’s medical gas market, giving us one of the most advanced cleaning machines in the market.

As well as out state of the art retro-chemical degreasing plant, part of our tube cleaning process is to hand inspect and hand finish cleaning of the copper tubes. This is something we believe is unique to Lawton Tubes.
