How to distinguish between high-quality seamless steel pipes and low-quality seamless steel pipes?

- Dec 23, 2020-

In daily steel purchases, the most annoying thing is the purchase of low-quality seamless steel pipes, which affects product quality. How to identify low-quality seamless steel pipes? Let's take a look at the method of identifying high-quality seamless steel pipes and inferior seamless steel pipes with the naked eye:

seamless steel pipe

1. Inferior quality seamless steel pipes are prone to scars.

Mainly due to two reasons:

(1) Inferior seamless steel pipes have many impurities and uneven materials.

(2) The guiding and guarding equipment of inferior pipe manufacturers is simple, especially easy to stick to steel, and the pipe containing impurities is easy to cause scars after biting into the roll.

2. Inferior quality seamless steel pipes are prone to pipe folding.

The so-called folding refers to the various fold lines formed on the surface of seamless steel pipes. Such defects often run through the longitudinal direction of the entire product. The folded product is easy to crack after bending, which causes the strength of the pipe to be greatly reduced.

3. Inferior quality seamless steel pipes are prone to scratches. The reason is that inferior steel pipe manufacturers have simple production equipment, and the products are prone to burrs and scratch the surface of the steel. Deep scratches will reduce the strength of the steel.

4. Inferior quality seamless steel pipes often have pitting on the surface.

The pitted surface is the irregularity of the surface of the steel due to the serious wear of the rolling groove. Because inferior steel pipe manufacturers are pursuing profits, groove rolling often exceeds the standard.

5. Inferior pipes are prone to cracks on the surface. One of the reasons is that the blanks are adobes with many pores. In the process of cooling, due to the effect of thermal stress, cracks are generated, and there are cracks after rolling.

6. Inferior seamless steel pipes have no metallic luster, and are light red or similar to pig iron. There are two reasons:

(1) Its blank is adobe.

(2) The rolling temperature of inferior materials is not standard, and their steel temperature is visually inspected. In this way, rolling cannot be carried out in the specified austenite area, and the performance of the steel will naturally not meet the standard.

7. Inferior quality seamless steel pipes have thin and low transverse ribs, and often appear dissatisfied. The reason is that in order to achieve a large negative tolerance, the reduction of the first few passes of the finished product is too large, the iron type is too small, and the hole type is not full.

8. The composition of high-quality steel is uniform, the specifications of the pipe cutting machine are high, and the end face of the cutting head is smooth and tidy. However, due to the poor material, the end face of the cutting head often has meat loss, that is, it is uneven and has no metallic luster.

9. Inferior seamless steel pipes have irregular cross-sections and large ovality errors.

10. The material of inferior seamless steel pipe contains many impurities, the density of steel is too small, and the size is severely out of tolerance, so it can be weighed and checked without a vernier caliper.

11. The inner diameter size of inferior seamless steel pipe fluctuates greatly because of:

(1) The steel temperature is unstable and has a negative and positive side.

(2) The composition of steel is not uniform.

(3) Due to the simple equipment, the foundation strength is low, and the rolling mill bounces greatly. There will be large changes in the same week, and such seamless steel pipes are prone to fracture due to uneven stress.

12. The trademarks and printing of high-quality seamless steel pipes are relatively standardized.

13. Inferior seamless steel pipe manufacturers have loose packaging due to no driving. The side is oval.
