Manufacturing Process: ERW
After welding,all tubes shall be heat treated at a temperature of 1650°F(900℃) or higher and followed by cooling in air or in the cooling chamber of a controlled-atmosphere furnace,Cold-drawn tubes shall be heat treated after the final cold-draw pass at a temperature of 1200°F(650℃)or higher.
Finished tubes shall be free of scale,A slight amount of oxidation will not be considered as scale.
