Seamless steel pipe and other long strip just the biggest difference is that it is no seams around the steel pipe section is hollow. Due to the different cross-sectional shape, and often be classified as circular steel pipe and the opposite sex, from the actual use of efficiency, of course, or tube-type pipe is more common. Wonder what is the use of seamless steel pipe?
Speaking of the use of seamless steel pipe we are most familiar with it is natural gas, water and other daily use of fluid transport. In addition to these common and familiar natural gas and water transport, seamless steel pipe is also widely used in the transport of oil, gas and some solid materials. Seamless steel pipe to achieve the transport of convenience to facilitate people’s modern life, greatly reducing the transportation costs of natural resources.
Secondly, because the seamless steel pipe hollow, its quality is much lighter than the solid steel pipe, naturally more affordable. And thus plays an important structural member and a component role in the manufacture of a drill pipe, a bicycle frame such as an automobile drive shaft, an oil, or the like. But also reduce the unnecessary waste of resources, reducing the total weight of finished products.
In addition, seamless steel pipe is often used as raw materials for ring metal parts, not only save a lot of complex processes, but also greatly reduces the production process of steel loss, saving production costs. This processing principle is not difficult to understand, a bit similar to cut the spinach, a knife cut down can quickly get a ring small circle parts, the loss to a minimum.
Above are talking about the cross-section of the seamless steel pipe, this round seamless steel pipe is not perfect. It is relatively poor bending, can not afford a greater force. Therefore, in the use of agricultural machinery skeleton, furniture, etc. will be used for seamless steel pipe into a square or rectangular, to increase the compressive strength of seamless steel pipe.
