From water to oil and gas, pressure pipes are crucial for many different applications. James Duva, Inc. provides seamless pipe products that are strong enough to withstand high working pressures and versatile enough to be used in many different applications.
Seamless pipe is fabricated without a welded seam. Seamless pipe begins as a billet—a cylindrical bar of steel. A mandrel is then pierced through the center of the billet. The hollow billet is then rolled and stretched until it meets the exact length, diameter and wall thickness as requested by the custom order.
Higher Working Pressure
Most pipe failures occur at the welded seam. Because it lacks a welded seam, it can withstand much higher working pressures than welded pipes. This pipe has 20% higher ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) working pressures than welded tubing of the same material and size. Because seamless tubing has no seam, it is equally strong around the entire circumference of the pipe.
Seamless Pipe Shape Uniformity
Seamless pipe is perfectly round. Welded pipe, on the other hand, is dimensionally inconsistent, and it cannot handle high-stress conditions. Because of the continuous extrusion of the alloy, seamless pipe maintains its round cross section. This is useful when you’re installing pipes or adding fittings. Because of its shape uniformity, it has fewer fail points than welded piping.
Seamless tubing can be divided into large-diameter pipe and small-diameter pipe. The diameter of the pipe essentially decides the application of the pipe. Because of this versatility, seamless pipes are used in the automotive, medical, shipbuilding, and oil rig industries. At James Duva, Inc. we manufacture seamless tubing to meet your custom specifications.
