Welding Methods

Welded stainless steel tube is made from long strip or sheet, passed a rolling machine, then the strip edges is welded longitudinally and melt together, using various welding processes, making welding beam is as same as base metal, and form into tube shape.

The sheet width is desired tube outside diameter, the width should be calculated before manufacturing.

TIG

Tungsten Inert Gas welding, another name for Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode is protected from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas.

EFW

Electric Fusion Welding, Electric Fusion Welding (EFW steel pipe) refers to an electron beam welding, the use of high-speed movement of the electron beam directed impact kinetic energy is converted to heat the workpiece so that the workpiece leaving the melt, the formation of the weld. It is mainly used for welding dissimilar steel welding sheet or which high power density, metal weldment can rapidly heated to high temperatures, which can melt any refractory metals and alloys.

ERW

Electric Resistance Welding, high-frequency electrical current is passed between the material edges, then the edges are forced together under pressure as a butt joint and then welded by heating the material to high temperatures.

DSAW

Double Submerged arc welded, similar to other pipe manufacturing processes, the manufacture of Double Submerged Arc Welded Pipe involves first forming steel plates into cylindrical shapes. The edges of the rolled plate are formed so that V-shaped grooves are formed on the interior and exterior surfaces at the location of the seam. The pipe seam is then welded by a single pass of an arc welder on the interior and exterior surfaces.

LSAW

Longitudinal Submerge-arc Welded, LSAW (Longitudinally Submerged Arc Welded Steel pipes) in leaflets plate as raw material, the steel plate in the mold or molding machine pressure (volume) into using double-sided submerged arc welding and flaring from production.

HFW

High Frequency Welding, HFW welded steel pipes are widely preferred in Oil, Natural Gas, Water and other liquids transportation and distribution lines, heating, cooling, ventilation piping and steel structures for construction and other general purposes by means of precise production tolerances and high capacity manufacturing method.

Heat treatment is generally required after manufacture, this process improves stainless steel welded tube properties, help welded tube suitable for wide applications.

Welded Tube VS Seamless Tube

There are differences between welded tube and seamless in manufacturing, typical appearance is that welded have welding seam, without or with additional filler metal, but seamless tube have not.

Size Range

Welded tube can be produced in a wide range sizes and dimensions, both large diameter and small diameter, it is hard to produce very large size and very thin wall seamless tube.

Production Time

Welded tube have short production time, because it posses more simple manufacturing process, in most condition, for seamless tube, several producing processes are needed to duplicate, such as cold rolling, heat treatment.

Working Pressures

Working pressures of the welded tube are approximately 20% less than the seamless tube, seamless tube is better selection use in harsh environment.

Production Cost

Obviously, welded tube is effective cost choice for many applications, seamless tube have higher price, but it is also durable.

Tolerance

Welded tubes have excellent concentricity, tight tolerance in outside diameter and wall thickness.
