Length of seamless boiler tubes

Length [m]for sizes [mm]
5 – 6 OD < 60.3
5 – 6 or 10 – 14OD => 60.3 and WT < 7.1
5 – 6 OD => 60.3 and WT => 7.1
Longer tubes (22 - 24 meters) can be supplied upon agreement
Types of supplied length of tubes are:(a) random length,
(b) fixed length ± 500 mm,
(c) exact length
L < 6 m 0 + 10 mm
L = 6 - 12 m 0 + 15 mm.
L > 12 m + upon agreement
 

 


Tube ends

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

The tubes with deburred ends
or ends customized for welding.
ends of seamless pipes customized for welding

Deburring applies to
Tube OD26.7 - 114.3 mm
    Tube ends
Tube WT 3.2 - 12.5 mm
Tube lengths4 - 13 meters
Deburring angle, a30°+ 5 and 37°± 2.5
Dimension, c1.6 ± 0.8 mm


Markings of the tubes and tube bundles

(a) The tubes with outside diameter up to 51 mm may be marked by a label attached to the tube bundle,
(b) Larger tubes must, at least, have markings at one end of the tube with the necessary data - producer name , standard, steel grade, test category, heat no, inspector's mark, identification number. Additional marking upon agreement.

Packaging of seamless boiler tubes

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


Tube testing

The group of TR1 quality is usually tested by a nonspecified test. The group of TR2 quality is always tested by a specified test.

The main difference in the mandatory testing between the TR1 and the TR2 is the fact, that in the TR2 quality the testing is done by blow bending test at 0°C temperature and as the optional test at this quality it can be agreed to do the nondestructive test as a proof of longitudinal defects.


Certified test reports for tubes

EN 10204: for EN 102943.1 specific testing
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 or 3.1.B,
STN 42 0250, ČSN 42 0250,

Straightness of tubes

Allowed straightness is 0.0015 multiple of the tube length, for 1 meter length the allowed straightness is 3 millimeters.


Condition of delivery and surface of boiler tubes

Condition of the tubes meets the requirements of the appropriate standards, i.e. the tubes go through normalized forming or after cold forming goes through normalized annealing. The tube surface meets the standards’ requirements and the means of manufacturing.

Seamless boiler tubes surface protection

While ordering, it is necessary to agree upon the method and means of temporarily protecting the surface of the tubes during transportation and storage. The tubes may be supplied without temporarily preservation of the surface or with an agreed upon preservative.
