Metal pipe and tubing are everywhere in automotive, aerospace, industrial, architectural, research, and medical applications. Aluminum and stainless steel are common pipe and tube materials, and each has attributes that make it the right choice for a given industry.
Aluminum pipe is a tubular extruded product with outside diameter (OD) and wall thickness (WT) measurements that must conform to set sizes. The standard measurements follow the format used for steel pipe specifying the OD and WT. For example, pipe noted as 1-1/2” schedule 40 has an OD of 1-1/2” and WT that meets Schedule 40 standards. The higher the schedule number, the thicker the wall.
Aluminum pipe is lightweight and offers good corrosion resistance, making it popular for outdoor railings, shelving and framing. Aluminum Pipe is available in Schedule 80 or 40, the most popular, and may be extruded.
What factors will affect the price of the stainless steel hose? Stainless steel hose prices in the market is concerned by most people, you know, the use of stainless steel hose field is very wide, traffic areas, public areas, industrial areas or in the field of construction are not them, therefore, how much is this hose the concern of the people.
Designed to perfectly fit with any universal silicone hose, our aluminum hose joiners are perfect for a wide range of applications. We recommend this high quality product for intercoolers, radiators, air induction systems, superchargers, and intercooler systems or for creating a D.I.Y system. As they are mirror polished, these joiners will look perfect in your engine bay. Offering the tightest bend radius on the market, you will have the flexibility to create the perfect system for you.
Aluminum heat pipes are a medium of heat transfer that can allow for the easy transportation of large amounts of heat with only a small amount of loss of energy during the process. This is true even when the pipes are co-located with elements that tend to be very cold. The aluminum heat pipe has often been used in radiators and other equipment for heating a living space, and today is often employed in temperature control for electronic devices.
For a kind of high-strength hard aluminum, it can be strengthened by heat treatment. It has moderate plasticity in annealing, just quenching, and hot state. It has good spot welding performance. When gas welding and argon-arc welding, aluminum tube has the tendency to form intercrystalline cracks; aluminum tube The machinability is still good after quenching and cold hardening, and is poor in the annealed state. The corrosion resistance is not high, and anodizing and painting methods are often used or aluminum layers are added on the surface to improve the corrosion resistance. It can also be used as a mold material.
The seamless aluminum tube is better than the seamed aluminum tube. The texture of the seamless tube is relatively uniform, and the welded tube has a small amount of chemical components in the weld. Therefore, the mechanical properties are somewhat poor but not very different. It is recommended to use a seamless pipe if it is a bent pipe. Welded pipe is easy to crack. There is no problem if the bending radius is large.
