Steel pipes and tubes meet the requirement of the present automotive industry successfully. Steel pipes and tubes main feature is its low weight and high rigidity resulting in large reduction in dimensions, weight, total cost and material. Steel pipes and tubes are used as steel frames, side impact absorbers, cross members between engine cradles and 'A' pillars and bumpers.
Steel pipes and tubes assist engineers in obtaining uniform flow under temperature and pressure control due to close tolerance on thickness and diameter, exceptional concentricity and a smooth inside and outside finish. Chemical composition, weldability, mechanical properties and oxidation resistance of Steel pipes and tubes offer the best performance all round at lower cost. Steel pipes and tubes have tremendous properties of low temperature and responds well to cold working hardening.
Galvanized pipes and tubes is covered with a layer of zinc. During galvanizing, steel is put in a molten zinc bath, to ensure a strong, uniform barrier coating. Natural resistance to corrosion of Zinc enables long lasting protection, even in environments outdoor. Other than stopping corrosion by water, Steel pipes and tubes are just as effective in indoor dry environments.
Corrugated steel pipes and tubes are obtainable in different sizes and shapes for the transportation drainage and sewer needs. Modern technology in engineering and many years dependability has made these steel pipes and tubes the choice material for storm sewers, culverts, underpasses, sub-drains, detention chambers, service tunnels and recharge systems.
Seamless steel pipes and tubes come in various small, thin, slender, precise and other special pipes sizes and used in installations with high and supercritical steam conditions, steam boilers and pipelines. These steel pipes and tubes are produced by quality steel that is electric furnace bearing, commercial, consumable and electrode vacuum melted. Strength and durability to the pipes is imparted and be used for applications to resist corrosion.
Steel pipes and tubes that are welded come in various qualities, diameters and wall thicknesses according to the demand. While manufacturing these Steel pipes and tubes, continuous-cast, high-quality, control-rolled, fully killed, low-carbon steel, fine-grain is only used. High performance Steel pipes and tubes hold high strength resistance to corrosion, good strength, high toughness and high deformability.
Welded steel pipes and tubes are used in various applications where strength, reliability and corrosion resistance have high demands. These steel pipes and tubes with high performance are mixed with higher contents of nitrogen and molybdenum to improve the strength and corrosion resistance. Steel pipes and tubes are also welded in order to become as high pitting corrosion resistance as possible in the weld, with over alloyed filler metals and/or with nitrogen added to the shielding gas.
The steel pipes and tubes use in Automotive Industry is increasing since the early 1900s, mainly in vehicle's safety structures and safety related components. This is because steel pipes and tubes have strength, reliability and corrosion resistance properties. The steel pipes and tubes have high energy absorption capacity, high construction safety and collision shocks resistance, making it highly.
Advantages of Steel Pipes:
Steel tubing has a variety of uses in many industries from industrial manufacturing to art. One use for steel tubing is the use of steel plumbing, which replaces traditional plastic pipes with stainless steel pipes. Although stainless steel piping is more expensive than plastic piping, it provides many benefits over plastic pipes, including:
Stainless steel has a low corrosion rate. The metal will retain its rust-free appearance for many years, even when water is constantly inside the tubes. The metal is unlikely to leach into the water, and the metal contamination rate for stainless steel is nearly nonexistent.
Stainless steel pipes are attractive and look like modern, sleek décor. It is possible to leave stainless steel pipes exposed inside a building and have that add to the decorative aesthetic of the room, rather than detract from it like a plastic pipe would.
Steel pipes are highly efficient, and it is possible to use a smaller diameter of pipe made from steel than pipes made from other materials. The mass flow rate for stainless steel pipes is much higher per diameter than many other materials. This can save on the cost of the pipes without sacrificing flow rate.
Stainless steel is strong and will resist damaging factors that can ruin other pipes, such as tree roots, human error, and extreme weather conditions.
Unlike plastic pipes, steel pipes are 100 percent recyclable. When the pipes are no longer needed, they can be melted down and turned back into other useable metal pieces in other industries.
Stainless steel pipes will not weather over time. The pipes will look and act the same in 20 years as they do today. The pipes will not sag and require much less support than plastic pipes.
