ERW special grades for pressure applications

The seam of ERW tubes made for mechanical applications is usually only eddy current tested, but we can also offer a range of ERW tubes to EN 10217-1 and EN 10217-2 which have been hydrostatically pressure-tested.  These tubes are used in applications such as pressure vessels, heating and refrigeration, boilers, pipelines, and chemical plant.

The tubes are made from black hot rolled strip in thicknesses from 2 mm to 6 mm.

We supply grade P235 as standard, but other grades are available to order.  The tubes are suitable for a variety of jointing methods, and we can offer grooved ends suitable for Victaulic couplings.

The default surface finish is black self-colour, but we often arrange for tubes to be galvanized or shot-blasted and painted to our customer’s requirements.
