With the development of science and technology, a lot of stainless steel products have been used in our life and industry. Usually, stainless steel products have good corrosion resistance and high strength. Therefore, they have taken the place of many products made of plastics or other materials.
Stainless steel pipe is one of the most widely used stainless steel products. There are many types of stainless steel pipes. For example, it is common to see stainless steel welded pipe, stainless steel seamless pipe, stainless capillary pipe, stainless steel LNG system pipe and so on. Different stainless steel pipes have different applications. Among all kinds of stainless steel pipes, stainless steel welded pipe is playing an important role in our industry. Here is some basic information about welded steel pipe.
The techniques for making stainless steel welded pipe have undergone remarkable development in a time span of 200 years or more. The history of welded steel pipe can be traced back to the early 1900s in London. At the time London government decided to equip the entire city with coal burning lamp system.
After learning the history of the stainless steel welded pipe, do you know how to manufacture welded steel pipes? Tube manufacturing starts in the steel mill where either slabs or billets are cast. Production of seamless tubes starts from billets. Large diameter and heavy-walled pipes are made from hot-rolled plate, while strip welded tubes are mainly produced from cold-rolled or hot-rolled slit pre-material. The wall thickness, diameter, final application and other factors are affecting the production techniques of the stainless steel pipes.
Welded steel pipes can be used in food processing, pharmaceutical production, for the conveyance and processing of liquids, gases and semi-solids in solution. Certainly, the applications of stainless steel pipes are not limited in these areas. With the development of technology, stainless steel welded pipes can be used in more fields.
