API 5L ERW Pipe
and tubes are used in various engineering purposes, fencing, scaffolding, line pipes etc. and tube are available in various qualities, wall thicknesses, and diameters of the finished pipes.
1.As only the edges are heated, the tube possesses dean accurate surface.
2.Safety is better than smls pipe.
3.The cost is cheaper than smls pipe and LSAW pipe.
4.Manufacturing speed is quicker than seamless pipe or sub merged welded pipes.
API 5L ERW pipe Applications :
(i) Electric resistance welding can make tubes in sizes up to 0.4 metre diameter.
(ii) Tubes can also be made from steels having around 0.3% carbon.
Major advantage is economy and especially in low pressure application. More and more engineering company will prefer API 5L ERW pipe rather seamless pipe or LSAW pipe.
