ボイラーチューブは、シームレスパイプの一つです。 製造方法はシームレスチューブと同じであるが、それは鋼管の製造のための厳格な要件があります。 温度レベルに応じて、ボイラーチューブは、一般的なボイラーチューブおよび高圧ボイラチューブに分割されています。
① general boiler tube temperature is below 450 ℃, using hot-rolled pipe or cold drawn tube manufacture steel pipe.
② high-pressure boiler tube is used often in conditions of high temperature and high pressure pipe, the effect of high temperature flue gas and water vapor, oxidation and corrosion. Steel pipe with high rupture strength, high resistance to oxygen corrosion and have good organizational stability.
① general boiler tubes is mainly used to manufacture water wall tubes, tubes in boiling water and super heated steam pipe, super heated steam locomotive boiler tubes, large and small smoke pipe and pipe arch brick.
② high-pressure boiler tube is mainly used to manufacture high pressure and ultra-high pressure boiler super heater tubes, reheat tubes, airway, the main steam pipe.
Standards and material for steel pipe is available at carbon, alloy, and stainless steel material.
