The difference between seamless steel pipes and other long strips is that there are no seams around them, and the steel pipe section is hollow. Due to different cross-sectional shapes, they are often classified into round steel pipes and heterogeneous steel pipes. In terms of actual use efficiency, of course, round steel pipes are more common. Wondering what are the uses of seamless steel pipes?
When it comes to the use of seamless steel pipes, we are most familiar with them for the transportation of fluids used in daily life such as natural gas and water. In addition to the transportation of natural gas and water that we are familiar with, seamless steel pipes are also widely used to transport oil, gas, and certain solid materials. Pipeline transportation realized by seamless steel pipes facilitates people’s modern life and greatly reduces the transportation cost of natural resources.
Secondly, because seamless steel pipes are hollow, their mass is much lighter than solid steel pipes and is naturally more economical. Therefore, they serve as important structural parts and components in the manufacturing of automobile transmission shafts, petroleum drill pipes, bicycle frames, etc. Role. At the same time, unnecessary waste of resources is reduced and the total weight of the finished product is reduced.
In addition, seamless steel pipes are often used as raw materials for ring-shaped metal parts, which not only eliminates a large number of complicated processes but also greatly reduces steel loss during the production process and saves production costs. This processing principle is not difficult to understand. It is a bit similar to cutting water spinach. You can quickly obtain small ring-shaped parts by cutting them one by one, minimizing losses.
The above are all seamless steel pipes with a circular cross-section. This circular seamless steel pipe is not perfect. Its bending resistance is relatively poor and cannot withstand large forces. Therefore, it is used in the framework of agricultural machinery and furniture. During use, the seamless steel pipe will be forged into a square or rectangular shape to increase the compressive strength of the seamless steel pipe.
