Look at the manufacturing process of seamless steel pipes,you will know why seamless steel pipes have no seams.

Seamless steel pipes are round, square and rectangular hollow section steel pipes with no external joints. Seamless steel pipes are made of steel ingots or solid tube blanks through perforation into capillaries. Then it is made by hot rolling, cold rolling or cold drawing. Seamless steel pipes have a hollow section and are usually used as pipes for conveying fluids. Compared with solid steel such as round steel, steel pipes have the same bending and torsion strength and are lighter in weight. They are economical section steels and are widely used in the manufacture of structures, parts and mechanical parts, such as steel scaffolding for oil drilling.

Production process of seamless steel pipe

①The production process of hot-rolled seamless steel pipe:

Preparation and inspection of tube billet → heating of tube billet → piercing → tube rolling → reheating of waste tube → fixed (reduced) diameter → heat treatment → straightening of finished pipe → finishing → inspection (non-destructive, physical and chemical, bench inspection) → Warehousing.

②The production process of cold-rolled seamless steel pipe

Blank preparation → pickling and lubrication → cold rolling (stretching) → heat treatment → straightening → finishing → inspection.

Generally, seamless steel pipes are made of 10, 20, 30, 35, 45 and other carbon steels (such as 16Mn, 5MnV and other low alloy structural steels) or 40Cr, 30CrMnSi, 45Mn2, 40MnB and other composite steels. Seamless pipes made of low carbon steel, such as 10 and 20, are mainly used for fluid conveying pipelines. Seamless tubes made of medium carbon steel (such as 45 and 40Cr) are used to make mechanical parts. For example, the pressure parts of automobiles and tractors usually need to use seamless steel pipes for strength and flattening tests. Hot-rolled steel pipes are delivered in a hot-rolled or heat-treated state, and cold-rolled steel is delivered in a heat-treated state.

As the name implies, hot rolling is due to the high temperature of the rolled parts. Therefore, the deformation resistance is small and a large amount of deformation can be achieved. Taking steel plate rolling as an example, the thickness of the continuous casting slab is generally about 230mm, and the thickness after rough rolling and finishing rolling is 1-20mm. At the same time, due to the small width-to-thickness ratio of the steel plate, the dimensional accuracy requirements are relatively low, and shape problems are not prone to occur. The crown is mainly controlled. Usually, the structure is achieved by controlling the rolling and cooling, that is, controlling the initial rolling temperature of the finish rolling Claim.

How to control the welding of spiral welded pipe?
Welded steel pipe (steel pipe manufactured with a weld) is a tubular product made out of flat plates, known as skelp, that are formed, bent and prepared for welding. Pipe molding can only follow two specific techniques that result in either seamless and welded pipe. Crude raw material such as ore or metal cast into ingots is the first step. The last step of the fabrication process is to shape the

Carbon steel seamless tube vs Stainless steel seamless tube
The difference between carbon steel seamless tube and stainless steel seamless tube mainly refers to the difference in design rules between carbon steel and stainless steel, which means that the design rules of these two types of steel cannot be used in common. These differences are summarized as follows: Carbon steel 1. Ordinary steel is carbon steel, that is, iron-carbon alloy. According to the level of carbon content, it is divided into
Seamless steel tube hardness testing
The hardness test is to slowly press a hard indenter into the surface of the sample under specified conditions, and then test the depth or size of the indentation to determine the hardness of the material. Hardness test is a simple, rapid and easy-to-implement method in material mechanical property test. The hardness test is non-destructive, and there is an approximate conversion relationship between the material hardness value and the tensile
Anti-corrosion technical requirements for seamless pipes
Seamless steel pipe (SMLS) is the most widely used pipe material at present. Generally, it needs anti-corrosion treatment when it is used for chemical pipelines, oil pipelines, natural gas pipelines, water pipelines and other projects. The common anti-corrosion processes of seamless steel pipes mainly include 3PE anti-corrosion, Epoxy coal tar anticorrosion, epoxy resin anticorrosion, IPN8710 anticorrosion, cement mortar anticorrosion technology, etc. 1.

Market Definition and Introduction Seamless pipes are a type of pipe with round, hollow cross sections without seams. Generally, they are a wrought steel tubular product manufactured without a welded seam. They are conventionally manufactured using a hot forming process through either extrusion or drawing. This is generally followed by cold sizing and molding the pipe into a desired shape and proportion and giving it desirable properties. Seamless pipes are generally
