Welded Pipes and Tubes

Welded Pipes and Tubes

Whenever the supply and delivery of high quality welded steel pipes and tubes are concerned, we are in the foremost competitive position on an international scale.

Welded pipe sizes and dimensions 

Welded pipes are used especially for pipeline constructions and for larger dimensions in the process plants; any specifications and qualities are part of our supply program.

For example, we supply carbon steel pipes for pipeline projects throughout the world according to:

  • API 5L X 52, X60, X65, X70

Welded carbon and alloyed process plant pipes in acc. to below standards:

  • ASTM A333, 671, 672, 691

Welded Stainless steel, special alloys pipes for chemical and petrochemical plants to:

  • ASTM A 312, 358, 778, 928, ASTM B 619, B725

All materials are also available in acc. to equivalent DIN/ EN standards and grades.

Welded pipe manufacturing

At the start of the welded pipe manufacturing process so called slabs or billets are cast in a steel mill. Dependent on the external dimensions and wall thickness there are different methods of producing welded pipes and tubes: Electric Resistance Welding (ERW), Fusion Welding (EFW) and Double Submerged Arc Welding (DSAW). In the ERW and EFW manufacturing process welded pipes are formed by hot or cold rolling plate and welding the seam. In order to keep the outside (O.D.) surface of a welded pipe smooth and uniform a cutting tool called scarfing blade is used to remove the weld flash. Scarfing from the inside (I.D.) welded flash is also possible. With a heat treating at the end of the manufacturing process the weld zone of the steel pipe can be made less visible. Due to the weld seam lower operating pressures are stated in accordance with ASME compared to seamless pipes. In general welded tubes possess tighter dimensional tolerances than seamless pipes and are less costly if produced in same quantities.
