ASTM A213 TP316 Tubes are very versatile and can therefore be found in a wide variety of industries. These include Oil & Gas, Refining, Petrochemical, Chemical, Fertilizer, Power, and Automotive. It is regularly used in the transport of liquids such as water, natural gas, waste and air. ASME SA 213 TP316 Tubing is also regularly required in many high pressure, high corrosion, and structural, mechanical, and storage environments. They have no seam, which means that the possibility of a ‘weak’ seam is eliminated and therefore this steel can generally withstand higher working pressures than welded alloy of the same material grade and size.
We as Siddhgiri Tubes is a prominent exporter of ASTM A213 Grade TP316 Seamless Tubes, which are made using a variety of different methods. The method used depends on the diameter or diameter to wall thickness ratio required for the application in which it is placed. Generally it is made from crude steel that is first melted down into a more manageable format: a hot solid billet. It is then “stretched” and then pushed or pulled onto a mild. This creates a hollow tube. It is then “extruded” and forced through a die and mandrel to achieve the desired inner and outer wall diameters. In order to ensure that it meets certain standards, SA 213 Gr. TP316 Polish Tubing must undergo a special heat treatment to ensure that the metallurgical properties meet the required requirements. This ensures our customers in offering an extremely high quality and durability product.
