What is the seamless steel pipe?
Seamless pipes without any seams or welds along its length. It means that the SMLS pipe has a continuous and uniform structure, making it stronger and more resistant to water or air pressure and corrosion compared to the welded pipe. Seamless pipes are typically made by hot forming steel blooms and then piercing them to create a hollow tube. Regular length is 5.5-12M. The diameter can make from 1/2’’ to 48’’ usually. And the normal wall thickness is from SCH10 to XXS.
What is the application of seamless pipes?
Seamless pipes are used in a wide range of applications, including the transportation of oil, natural gas, and water, as well as structural support in construction, mining, and other heavy-duty industries. The lack of seams and welds also makes seamless pipes easier to clean and maintain, making them ideal for use in high-pressure and high-temperature applications.
What kinds of materials are available for seamless pipe?
There are many grades and types of seamless pipes available, including carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, and other specialty materials. The choice of seamless pipe will depend on the specific request of the application, such as pressure, temperature, chemical resistance, and cost.
