Stainless steel pipe fittings (SS pipe fittings) is the general name of all kinds stainless material pipe connections. Take stainless steel metal hose as example, SS metal hose owns advantages of good flexibility, corrosion resistant, anti-fatigue, high and low temperature resistant, noise and vibration reductive, strong leakproofness and long service life, it has been widely used to deliver steam, water, oil, medicine and all kinds of industrial gas. SS pipe fittings can be divided into different types on basis of its shape, purpose and pipe connections way. SS pipe fittings has the properties of easy installation, high capacity and durability, is widely used in various pipe connections installation. Henan Lanphan concluded the manufacturing process of stainless steel pipe fittings.
SS Braided Metal Hose
1. Material Processing. SS pipe fittings mainly use pipe, panel and bars, material processing methods selection always based on the material features and blank shapes.
2. Shaping (Welding). Shaping is an essential process for SS pipe fittings manufacturing technology.
A: Heating. The heating temperature usually is determined by material type and SS pipe fittings process need.
B: Welding. SS pipe fittings’ welding methods includes manual arc welding, gas shielded welding and automatic welding.
3. Heat Treatment. It’s an important part of pipe connections manufacturing.
4. Surface Treatment. Always use the method of abrasive blasting, shot blasting, polish and acid picking to clear the corrosion and scratches.
5. Machining. Machining is a working procedure for SS pipe fittings’ end welding, structure size, form and location tolerance processing.
6. NDT. Nondestructive testing is an important procedure to check the defective in material and SS pipe fittings processing progress.
7. Surface Protection. Paint oil paint to protect carbon steel and alloy steel pipe connections’ surface, use passivation after acid picking method to protect SS pipe fittings’ surface.
Above is SS pipe fittings’ manufacturing process summed up by Henan Lanphan. Henan Lanphan is a specialized company in pipe fitting selling and production. Hope this article could offer you useful information to your business. Please let us know if you have any question about SS pipe fittings.
