What is seamless steel tube?
Seamless tubes are as defined – they do not have a welded seam. The tubing is manufactured through an extrusion process where the tube is drawn from a solid stainless steel billet and extruded into a hollow form. … Tubing is further shaped through pilgering, a cold rolling process, or cold drawing.
Characteristics of seamless steel pipe
Seamless steel pipe for the use of engineering and construction is very widely, it is a hollow steel strip no seams, it is mainly used to transport liquids pipelines, different look and general steel,one of those heavy type steel, it has a strong resistance to corrosion, resistant to general corrosion.
Will not rust, this performance makes seamless steel tubes extend the life, the most important is that it is very clean and no toxins.
Compared with other plastic seamless steel pipe having strong mechanical resistance, impact regardless of how high a temperature is not interested in the use of seamless steel pipe, it is mounted and the other pipe is the same, can replace other piped water and other liquids.
Some of the differences between seamless tubes and welded tubes are:
A seamless tube is extruded and drawn from a billet whereas a welded tube is produced from a strip that is roll formed and welded to produce a tube.
Since a seamless tube offers a higher range of safety measures it is more expensive than a welded tube.
A seamless tube is relatively short in length, whereas welded tubes can be manufactured in long continuous lengths.
A seamless tube generally doesn’t show any sign of corrosion until and unless it is subjected to a highly corrosive environment, whereas the weld area in the welded tube is much more prone to corrosion attacks.
