Manufacturing Method of Seamless Steel Pipe for Conveying Fluid

Posted by shirley xiao


The seamless steel pipe for conveying fluid is a general seamless pipe used for conveying water, oil, gas and other fluids. It is mainly used for conveying fluid pipes on engineering and large equipment. Representative materials (brands) are #20, Q345, etc.

Executive standards for seamless pipes for conveying fluids: GB/T8163-2008 (seamless steel pipes for conveying fluids), ASTM A106 and ASTM A53, general seamless steel pipes for conveying fluids.

Because of their different manufacturing processes, they are divided into two types: hot-rolled (extruded) seamless steel tubes and cold-drawn (rolled) seamless steel tubes. Cold drawn (rolled) tubes are divided into round tubes and special-shaped tubes.

The seamless pipe for conveying fluid is a kind of hollow section with no welds from beginning to end. The steel pipe has a hollow section and is used as a pipe for transporting oil, natural gas, gas, water and certain solid materials in large quantities. Compared with solid steel such as round steel, steel pipe is lighter when the bending and torsion strength is the same. It is a kind of economical cross-section steel, which is widely used in the manufacture of structural parts and mechanical parts, such as oil drill pipes, automobile transmission shafts, and bicycles. And steel scaffolding used in construction. The use of steel pipes to manufacture ring-shaped parts can increase the utilization rate of materials, simplify the manufacturing process, and save materials and processing man-hours. For example, rolling bearing rings, jack sleeves, etc., have been widely manufactured with steel pipes. Steel pipes are also an indispensable material for various conventional weapons. Gun barrels and barrels are all made of steel pipes. Steel pipes can be divided into round pipes and special-shaped pipes according to different cross-sectional area shapes. Since the circle area is the largest under the condition of the same circumference, more fluid can be transported with a circular tube. In addition, when the ring section bears internal or external radial pressure, the force is relatively uniform. Therefore, most steel pipes are round pipes.

(1) Manufacturing method of seamless pipe for conveying fluid:
①Generally, the temperature of boiler tubes is below 450℃. Domestic tubes are mainly made of No. 10 and No. 20 carbon steel hot-rolled tubes or cold-drawn tubes.
②High-pressure boiler tubes are often in high temperature and high pressure conditions when used, and the tubes will be oxidized and corroded under the action of high-temperature flue gas and water vapor. The steel pipe is required to have high enduring strength, high oxidation and corrosion resistance, and good organizational stability.

(2) Uses:
①General boiler tubes are mainly used to make water wall tubes, boiling water tubes, superheated steam tubes, superheated steam tubes for locomotive boilers, large and small smoke tubes and arched brick tubes.
②High-pressure boiler tubes are mainly used to manufacture superheater tubes, reheater tubes, air guide tubes, main steam tubes, etc. of high-pressure and ultra-high-pressure boilers.
However, round pipes also have certain limitations. For example, under the condition of plane bending, round pipes are not as strong as square and rectangular pipes. Some agricultural machinery frameworks, steel and wood furniture, etc. often use square and rectangular pipes. According to different purposes, special-shaped steel pipes with other cross-sectional shapes are required.
