Seamless Tube & Seamless Pipe
Our seamless tube (also known as seamless pipe) is stronger than welded tube - and are made by rolling a preheated billet between offset rolls to create a tube shell. The tube shell is then elongated in a multi-stand rolling mill to achieve the desired wall thickness and a limited range of diameters. Tube diameter can also be achieved with a sizing collar but, for significant diameter changes, the tube is reheated and passed through a stretch-reducing mill – a multi-stand mill that reduces outside diameter but not wall thickness. The seamless range also includes Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG.). Boiler tubing, the oil and gas industries and automotive transmission components are typical applications.
We stock precision seamless tubes for mechanical applications that satisfy both the European norm, EN 10305-1 and the various national standards in force.
The tubes are cold drawn to ensure the most accurate dimensional tolerances.
