Stainless steel pipe reducing tees
Metleader is an expert of stainless steel pipe reducing tees. We are exporting and supplying stainless steel tee to many clients with big quantity. We have extensive stock of stainless steel reducing tees to meet customers'specifications and standards. So the delivery time is fast and in time.
Commonly the production technique of stainless steel tee are hydraulic expansion and hot pressing. The hydraulic expansion method is usually used to produce common thickness pipe tee. First, the raw material should be cut according to the standard proportion, then take a piece of material pipe to put in the hydraulic mould, the liquid is filled in the pipe, the hydraulic pressure presses the branch. This method provides a good surface finish. However, this method cannot be suitable to produce thick wall pipe tee.
For the stainless steel tee with large diameter and heavy wall thickness can not be produced by using the hydraulic expansion method but by the hot extrusion method. In the hot extrusion method, the material pipe with larger diameter than the finished product is usually used, and the branch is extruded from the pipe with the help of the extrusion tool. Reducing tee can also be produced by adjusting the mold if necessary.
The stainless steel tee produced according to hydraulic expansion method, heat treatment is necessary. Otherwise the tee is very easy to be cracked. And the heat treatment normally involves normalizing and tempering, only to do normalizing the machanical capacity can not met standard request. Except that all tees should be done magnetic powder inspection to check if there are hidden cracks. If the hidden cracks can't be found which will bring big risk and damage for the pipeline. Metleader has exported and supplied many customers stainless steel pipe reducing tee with big quantity. Our products never happen quality issue of crack. Because our production of tee correctly and strictly according to ISO and CE standard. We always insist our aim to provide stable quality and good service. It is our basic rule.
The stability of product quality comes from strict inspection. Especially stainless steel tee if there is no strict inspection, there will be great potential risks. Because the production technology of tee is the branch produced by cold extrusion or hot pressing, inside of the branch is easy to occur internal crack, which is hard to be found by eyes. It is necessary to test the crack through special method The testing method to is usually magnetic powder detection, the crack can be easily detected by this method. Our all pipe tees are required to do magnetic particle testing to ensure good quality.
