Working with tubes is easier than it is with pipes

People always prefer to work with competent and professional individuals who know what they are doing. We fit this description nicely. For many years now, we have been offering our clients some of the finest tube manipulation services in the country. If you allow us to, we can do the same for you as well.

There are those who question whether there are any benefits to using tube over pipe. Having worked in this industry for as long as we have, we are aware of several advantages. What we are going to do is share some of them with you right here. This should give you a better understanding of why people favour them.

Simple installation

To begin with, it is simpler for you to install tube. You won’t need any special tooling in order to cut threads. All you will require is a regular spanner. Tube installations are more cost effective and quicker than pipe fitting.

Easier to bend

Another advantage that tubes have is that it is easier to manipulate and bend them. This is due to the thinner walls. On the other hand, pipe is trickier to work with. As a result, you normally need elbows. This introduces additional leak paths for the secondary fittings.

A greater fluid flow

Due to the gradual tube bends, there is a superior fluid flow. Eventually, there will be smaller pressure drops too. With pipes, there are sharp bends in the elbows. This generates higher pressure drops since there is a loss of potential energy and turbulence.


Tube ManipulationLast but not least, tubing is lighter. The reason why is that no allowances are necessary whilst threading. At the same time, you shall preserve sufficient wall thickness.

At Multiform Tubes, we use our tube manipulation talents for both industrial and domestic purposes. Our team has a wealth of experience and lots of knowledge on this subject. This means we can advise you on anything that you don’t understand.
