A seamless tube is made of stainless steel material. Stainless steel is corrosion resistant, heat resistant, has a shiny appearance and does not rust.
A seamless tube is usually a continuous length of pipe that is used for making pipes or vessels. Stainless steel is an alloy composed of nickel, chromium, molybdenum, iron, carbon and other elements. It’s used in manufacturing of chemical industries, food processing plants, chemical plants and paper mills.
There are various kinds of stainless steels used for different applications. Seamless steel tubes are widely used in the chemical industry. These are used to make stainless steel seamless tube vessels or reactors. These are fabricated using a continuous process of drawing and expanding of a billet.
There are various types of seamless tubes such as high tensile, low tensile, austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and others. High tensile steel is a combination of high carbon and chromium. It is also known as the cold rolled product. It is a very tough material which is used to manufacture pipes and tubes.
The materials used in this industry are of very high standards. The grades of steel that can be used in these applications are:
