Tubes length destined of heat exchanger tubes

Upon request the heat exchanger tubes may be supplied in length up to 20 meters.

 

 


Ends of heat exchanger tubes

The ends are vertical to the longitudinal axis and are without burrs.
ends of seamless pipes



Markings of the tubes and tube bundles

(a) Tubes are marked by spraying the agreed upon data.
(b) Tube bundles are marked with labels with the agreed upon data.

Packaging of heat exchanger tubes

The tubes are supplied in packages with a circular or hexagonal outline with having weight of 300 – 3 500 kg.



Testing of heat exchanger tubes

- prescribed mechanical tests,
- leak tightness test by eddy current,
- hydrostatic testing,
- ultrasound testing.

Certified test reports for heat exchanger tubes

ASTM / ASME A450
EN 10204: for EN 10297nonspecified testing (only the mandatory tests), 2.2
specified testing – 3.1.B
after agreement - 3.1.A, 3.1.C, 3.2
DIN 50049, - 2.2, 3.1. B

Straightness of heat exchanger tubes

Straightness deviation for the whole length of a tube L can not exceed value of 0.0015 x L. In conversion to the 1 meter length it can not exceed 3 mm.


Condition of delivery and surface of tubes

Tubes are supplied according to agreed standards. The cold drawn tubes after the final forming go through thermal processing in shielding gas – normalizing.


Surface protection of heat exchanger tubes

The inner and outer surface is protected by a light oil application. Upon request it may be protected with and easy removable oil application on the outer side. The tube ends may be enclosed by a plag.
