6061 & 6063 Aluminium Pipe
- 6061 aluminum pipe exhibits moderate strength coupled with good corrosion resistance. It has good workability, making it easy to extrude, weld and coat. 6061 aluminum pipe is used in both structural and seamless pipe applications. Some structural products it is used for include fence posts, sign structures, and highway and bridge rails
- 6063 aluminum pipe has the same excellent corrosion resistance, strength, workability and weldability properties as 6061 aluminum pipe. Due to its finer grain structure, it produces better results when anodized, increasing its corrosion resistance. 6063 aluminum pipe is commonly found in irrigation systems, door & window frames, railings and furniture products that may be exposed to slightly corrosive environments.
Stainless Steel Tubes & Pipes
Stainless Steels has a property of resistance to both aqueous (wet) and gaseous (dry) corrosion. It has excellent cleanability, a high hygiene factor, the ability to handle both high and extremely low temperatures, a high resistance to fouling, and the ability to be fabricated by standard processes into components of sound structural integrity. AG Mechanical Solutions provide SUS ranging from SUS 304 / 303 , 316 and inconels.
PIPE – A major use of pipe is in pressure piping systems for which the wall thickness relative to the outside diameter(OD) determines the pressure rating. Pipe is produced to standard OD sizes, a peculiarity being that these are designated by a NOMINAL BORE dimension. Each specific Nominal
Bore size has several associated wall thicknesses designated by SCHEDULE numbers, resulting in different outside diameters (OD’s).
TUBE – Tubes are used where precise fitment of the OD is required, e.g. tubes into a tube plate in a heat exchanger. Tube is produced to standard OD sizes, which is the critical factor and specified exactly by the actual dimension. Each OD size has a large range of associated wall thicknesses specified by the exact actual dimension. Tubes tend to have a relatively thinner wall thickness than do pipes.
