What are ERW tubes?

ERW refers to the welding process that takes place to create the tubing. Our experienced team uses the best technology to create your tubes. We unwind steel strips from coils, and then they are side-trimmed to control the width and prepare edges for welding.

Contoured rollers cold-form the metal into whatever shape we want. We push the edges together using pressure as a butt joint. Afterwards, we weld it together, and our team removes the resulting flash weld from the tube. This is when we test the tubing to ensure its quality. Finally the product needs cutting to length and rolled to the precise size required.


The application options for our products can vary. ERW tubes are mostly used as piping for liquids. This can include water, oil and gas. Suppliers of ERW tubes work with industries like oil companies and pipe distributors. ERW tubes are also used by steel fabricators and even government agencies too.
