What is tube reduction?
You may not know what this process actually is. It is similar in nature to tapering. Here, you reduce the tube in size towards at the end. The difference is the shape.
A technique like this has its uses in all sorts of applications. Providing external and internal flush joints are good examples but there are many more.
Usually, you would perform tube end reduction on hydraulic end formers or rotary reducing machines.
This method comes with various benefits. For instance, there is no interruption to the grain structure. As a result, it guarantees that there won’t be any loss of integral strength. You can place your work pieces within hot or warm conditions too. That makes them perfect for heavy wall components. Talk to us if you require food grade stainless steel tube reduction.
Rotary reduction can tube layer as well. Here, you can reduce tubes of differing substances together. This ends up creating a sandwich effect. It can amplify the strength of your tube while letting you use specific materials.
Hydraulic end forming
This technique uses a static forming die as well as clamps. These can form tubes that are up to 5.5″ in diameter. It is important to note that this is much bigger than what you can obtain using rotary reducing. With the two reduction methods, wall thicknesses can reach 5mm. However, hot rotary forming can work with thicker walls.
Why choose this kind of steel?
Next, we will talk a little about why we love using food grade stainless steel for these techniques. One of the characteristics we like the most about it is that it does not react to the materials it comes in contact with. There is no contamination in other words. Therefore, it is easy to create processing equipment, containers, and similar items.
Furthermore, the steel is a material that is not difficult to clean. Expect it to stay hygienic. Thanks to the corrosion resistance, cleaning won’t damage the metal either.
When you put all this together and consider the strength and low cost, and you have something more than capable of performing to the best standards.
