ERW tubes are favoured for municipal, housing, and construction projects

For applications to succeed, you must have all the right components. This often includes ERW tubes. Our business offers them in several qualities and sizes. Not to mention, we have one of the quickest delivery systems in the UK. This means you won’t have to wait long for your order to arrive.

ERW tubesWelded tubes like the ERW variety are hollow. They are normally rectangular, square, or round in shape; however, in some cases they could be different. We manufacture them at our tube welding mill so we can control the quality.

There is a wide array of applications for the tubing. People primarily use them in the municipal, housing, and construction industries. We will take a close look at some of these uses below.

Water and gas tubes

ERW tubes are a good choice for gas and water systems at industrial and residential sites. This is because it is not acceptable to install tubes made from other materials in a handful of regions. Here is an example. There are regulations and standards that say you can’t use plastic tube for gas systems in a number of countries.

Hydrostatic assessments

Gas and water tubes must be able to endure the specific pressures inside the system. As a result hydrostatic assessments are essential. There are situations where you do not need to perform these tests though. For instance, a tube weld might be subject to 100% of NDT. Saying this, every great manufacturer is going to ensure that their ERW tubes can withstand the pressures in testing.

Infrastructure and construction

People find many uses for oval, round, rectangular, and square ERW tubing in their infrastructure and construction projects. This includes using them in steel frameworks and support structures for residential and industrial buildings. In addition, you can use them to create protective enclosures for various needs. This includes for heat networks, and water and main pipelines. It is also common to find these tubes in ventilation systems, chimneys, and sewage lines.

Another use for these tubes is concrete filled tube and composite structures. These are ones that can resist greater stresses in comparison to reinforced concrete columns or standalone tubing. The process of filling the tubes gives them a higher load bearing ability. As a result it is possible to use columns with smaller segments. In turn that means you have layout solutions that are more flexible.
