Union Steel Tubes is a business that has been operating since 2004. Our work includes supplying clients with a full array of first rate tubing products. This includes seamless hollow section items. Since we are an ISO 9001 Registered establishment, we are capable of handling any size order. At the same time, we are small enough that we can offer you an outstanding level of customer care.
You will find seamless products everywhere
The number of uses for these utensils is huge and growing every day. There are many reasons why people love to use the products we supply.
One of the primary benefits would be the increased pressure ratings offered to users. When you roll and weld a steel tube, the weakest area is always the seam. A seamless tube does not have one. As a result, it possesses uniform tensile strength around the tube’s entire circumference. Steel tubing comes with nominal pressure ratings based on the alloy’s tensile strength, as well as the thickness.
It is more expensive to utilise seamless hollow section products. However, the trade off is that it allows for a smaller tube weight and wall thickness. This can influence the cost and design.
Another reason why people love using seamless tubes is the uniform shape. Due to seamless tubing being a constant extrusion of the alloy, it benefits from having true roundness of the circumference.
Welded seam tube is invariably not as round in the cross sectional area if you compare to a seamless one. This is due to the fact that you wrap the tubing around another form prior to welding. The welding uses heat and the equipment introduces stress in order to hold the tube together. As a result there are variables that can lead to the warping of the roundness.
Seamless tubing preserves the round cross section. This is vital when you look at tube fittings and the ease of installation.
Strength under loading
One other reason why you should use seamless hollow section products is the strength they have under loads. The tube may be expensive, but it is the most reliable with minimal failure points. That gives it a big advantage. It is also able to support the weight over extensive spans.
If the tube is for moving materials, whether it is water, oil, or a gas, you must also consider the material’s weight. This is not as big of an issue with seamless tubing due to the strength advantages.
