ERW tubes are sturdy, durable and reliable, which makes them an excellent choice for many different applications. They are made from steel plate which is submitted to a process known as electrical resistance welding. This welding uses heat to fuse the edges of the rolled plate together to create a sturdy and tight tube. The resultant ERW tube combines high strength with superior corrosion resistance. In order to offer our customers these tubes for their needs, we can cut them to any size required, as well as deburring them. Continue reading “Cutting and deburring tubes”
Our company began in 2004 with the aim of delivering the finest steel tube cutting and processing services, and since then we have developed into the foremost ERW steel tube supplier in the West Midlands. We have a large variety of products when it comes to steel tubes and have over 200 different sizes, as well as a tube cutting service to ensure that your steel tubes are exactly the right length for your project.

As specialists in ERW steel tubes in the West Midlands and throughout the entire UK, we regularly work with a huge variety of different industries and businesses. The major advantage of our ERW tubes is that they can be applied to a diverse range of environments. Put simply, the process of electric resistance welding involves the connection of two surfaces with the heat generated by the electrical resistance of the materials and the pressure used throughout the welding process. Our tubes are useful for almost any project. Continue reading “Steel tubes for every environment”

nergy prices around the world continue to rise as developed and developing countries continue to use more and more energy on a daily basis. The demand puts huge pressure on supplies and encourages energy producers to invest in the exploration of new technologies and alternative sources. There is a great deal of pressure to find new oil and gas reserves but finding and extracting the resources can be very costly, resulting in higher prices.
A recent report by MarketsandMarkets highlights the impact the oil and gas exploration, extraction and refining have on the tubular goods market. Findings suggest that between 2014 and 2019 demand for tubular products will increase approximately 7%, particularly because of offshore activities and shale gas exploration. Demand for both ERW tube products and seamless pipes will increase, meaning there is great potential for producers to expand their services.
Europe is an emerging market for shale gas and is estimated to have large untapped reserves to call on. Extensive research has been done in the UK to try to estimate how large the gas and oil reserves could be. Initial surveys suggested the stores could be comparable in size to those in the North Sea. Subsequent work revised the number up even further. One study conducted by BGS (British Geological Survey) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change suggested that across Central Britain there was a store of shale gas measuring 37.7 trillion cubic metres, enough to meet the energy needs of the UK for over 40 years.
Shale gas exploration may still be in its infancy in the UK but if it gets the go ahead the demand for infrastructure will increase dramatically. This means tubing manufacturers could find themselves with huge orders to fill and bigger profits to make. With any gas or oil system there is demand for tubing for the extraction, transportation and refining of resources. Both ERW tube and seamless tube products will be needed to create infrastructure.
Steel tubes are used for a huge number of different applications, ranging from scaffolding to line pipes and many different types of engineering projects. They are versatile in the sense that they can be produced in a huge number of different dimensions, allowing consumers to choose the most suitable one for their needs. There is also the option whether to opt for seamless or resistance welded tubing. The type you go for will depend on your needs and budget. Continue reading “Why choose ERW tubing?”
