Steel tubes are favoured over PVC models

We are a business that knows how to handle its orders and look after customers. With ERW tubes, we have more than two hundred different sizes to share. In addition, they come in a choice of shapes like round, square, rectangular, and oval. By having so many options available, we are able to meet the requirements of our clients, even the more unique ones.

ERW tubesBuildings depend on their tubing matrix to ensure the structure stays in order. These structural substances are responsible for HVAC and plumbing systems that aid in regulating temperature. Moreover, they facilitate fluid conveyance in a location.

When deciding between PVC and steel tube for these applications, you must understand the materials. Both tubes do have their positives. However, it is steel and its attributes that have made it the more appropriate choice. If you would like to learn more, please continue reading.

Heat resistance

Active steel tubes come with a greater level of heat resistance if you compare to PVC variants. Knowing this, it should not surprise you that you can use the tube for other tasks too. Petrochemical works would be a good example. The tubing must constantly endure high pressures, as well as high heat. The operations that take place here are typically extreme. Because of this one reason, steel tubes are a great choice. They can resist the extreme heat without breaking.

As for PVC tube, it is a bad choice for the petrochemical industry as the effectiveness is lower. Their usability shall be lost if you subject them to temperatures exceeding 60ºC.

Cost effectiveness

Another important point to make is that steel tubes are more cost efficient. PVC tubing is more expensive to manufacture when you compare the two. This is especially true when they are pre-cut.

Because of how popular steel tube is, and the manufacturing procedures to make it, there are impressive cost advantages. PVC on the other hand lacks the strength of steel. When you use them in less desirable scenarios, you must uninstall them frequently. You then need to take them apart and replace them. Building owners will find this costly.

Steel tubing doesn’t have the same negative aspects. Even with minimal maintenance, they can endure for a century. It can be even longer if you have protective coatings.
