Aluminum pipes: the main characteristics of products from metal alloy
Aluminum is a specific metal that has found its application in numerous sectors of the national economy. He is in demand in the metal. Pipes with different sections and different lengths, as well as with a different ratio of aluminum and impurities to it, are made from it.
Numerous companies, both domestic and foreign, produce this type of metal-roll. But if the customer appreciates the quality-price ratio, he prefers only proven and reliable partners, among which Metal-alloy company stands out.
Aluminum pipes from Metal Alloy received their popularity due to such features as:
- high quality production of aluminum metal;
- products are lightweight (this is ensured by a very high density of metal), and given their lightness, difficulties with transportation and installation can be eliminated;
- This is one of the few types of metal that does not corrode (but for this you should prefer aluminum pipes without impurities, where the metal content is not less than 95%, and even products with a significant percentage of impurities are resistant to corrosion, as in the production of finished products are treated with petroleum jelly to exclude oxidation due to them);
- resistance to any aggressive and chemical environment;
- sufficiently long service life (at least 30 years);
- the metal is not deformed during operation and does not lose its quality characteristics;
- the products are endowed with high throughput, therefore aluminum metal-roll is more preferable than cast iron, steel or copper (the reason for this is the minimum roughness of the metal, and the working medium moves along such pipes much faster);
- ideal option for sewer system and arrangement of water supply;
- due to the unique material properties of the product lends itself to any method of processing.
Aluminum pipes are produced in a wide variety, and they mainly differ in the type of section, size, length and method of production.
In particular, there are the following technologies for creating such products:
- cold deformation: the aluminum circle is drawn out during processing, forming a pipe;
- pressing: the aluminum billet is heated to a certain temperature and pushed through a die under high pressure, resulting in a product of the required size and shape (pipes produced in this way are resistant to mechanical damage and ideal for anodizing)
- Welding: aluminum sheet is bent into an ideal circle and welded from both sides.
