Tube & Pipe

ERW Pipe, Spiral Pipe, Seamless Pipe

Steel tube and pipe production is a manufacturing process that involves the production of steel tubes and pipes for various applications. Tubes and pipes are cylindrical hollow structures made of steel and are used in a wide range of industries for conveying fluids, gases, or solids, as well as for structural and mechanical purposes.
The steel tube and pipe production process can vary based on the specific requirements of the product and the industry. Different standards, such as ASTM, API, and DIN, outline specific requirements for the manufacturing and testing of tubes and pipes to ensure their reliability and performance in various applications.

Longitudinally Welding Tube Mill

ERW Tube Mill (Electric Resistance Welding)
ERW tube mills are known for their efficiency and cost-effectiveness in producing high-quality tubes for a wide range of applications, including construction, automotive, structural, and industrial uses. The process allows for the production of tubes with tight tolerances, excellent weld integrity, and various surface finishes. Additionally, ERW tube mills offer the versatility to produce not only round pipes but also shaped profiles, expanding their capabilities to meet diverse customer requirements and applications. This flexibility makes ERW tube mills a valuable resource for manufacturing a variety of tube and pipe products tailored to specific shapes and dimensions.

LSAW Tube Mill (Longitudinal Submerged Arc Welding) 
The forming process of LSAW pipes allows for the production of pipes with large diameters and thick walls, making them suitable for applications such as oil and gas pipelines and structural projects. The longitudinal seam, formed through the welding process, contributes to the strength and reliability of these pipes.
TSM supplies both types of plate bending mills, including JCO and roll bending.

Spirally Welding Pipe Mill

A spiral pipe mill is a facility that manufactures spiral-welded pipes, which are used in various applications such as oil and gas pipelines, water transportation, and structural applications. The manufacturing process involves forming a continuous strip of steel into a spiral shape and welding the edges together to create a seamless, helical pipe. This method provides strength and durability to the pipes, making them suitable for transporting fluids and withstanding external pressures. Spiral-welded pipes are commonly produced in large diameters and are known for their cost-effectiveness and structural integrity.

Seamless Pipe Mill

A seamless pipe mill is a facility that produces seamless pipes, which are pipes without any welded seams. The manufacturing process involves heating a solid cylindrical billet or a hollow tube, known as a shell, to a high temperature. The heated material is then pierced to create a hollow center, and it is elongated and reduced in diameter through a series of elongation processes. The resulting seamless pipe has a consistent composition and is free from the potential weak points associated with welded seams. Seamless pipes are often used in critical applications such as high-pressure pipelines, oil and gas exploration, and various industrial processes where the integrity of the pipe is crucial. They are known for their strength, uniformity, and resistance to leaks.
