What are the quality inspections of seamless steel pipes?

Seamless steel pipe is a steel pipe perforated by a whole round steel, with no weld on the surface. It can be divided into general purpose (used for water and gas pipelines and structural parts, mechanical parts) and special purpose (used for boilers, geological exploration, bearings, acid resistance, etc.). Haihao Group has rich experience in the production of seamless steel tubes. Today, I would like to share with you the quality inspection of seamless steel tubes.

1 Chemical composition analysis: chemical analysis method, instrumental analysis method (infrared C-S instrument, direct reading spectrometer, zcP, etc.).

2.Geometric dimension and appearance inspection of steel pipe, including:

Steel pipe wall thickness inspection; Inspection for outer diameter and ovality of steel pipe; Steel pipe length inspection; Steel pipe bending inspection; Inspection for groove angle and blunt edge of steel pipe end face;

3.Surface quality inspection of steel pipes, including:

Manual visual inspection: lighting conditions, standards, experience, identification, steel pipe rotation.

NDT: UT; Eddy current flaw detection ET; Magnetic particle MT and magnetic flux leakage testing; Electromagnetic ultrasonic flaw detection; Penetrant testing.

4.Steel management performance inspection: tensile test; Impact test; Hardness test; Hydraulic test.

5.Process performance inspection of steel pipes: flattening test, circular tension test, flaring and crimping test, bending test.

6.Metallographic analysis of steel pipe:

High magnification test (microscopic analysis): non-metallic inclusion.

Low magnification test (macro analysis): naked eye, magnifying glass less than 10x.
