'U' bending is done by cold working process.
'U' bending is done to the required radius as per customer drawings.
The bend portion and six inch leg is stress relieved by resistance heating.
Inert gas (Argon) is passed through it at the required flow rate to avoid oxidation in ID.
The radius is checked for its OD and wall thinning with the recommended specification. The physical properties and microstructure is checked at three different position.
Visual inspection for waviness and cracks is done with Dye Penetrant Test.
Each tube is then hydro tested at the recommended pressure to check for leakage.
Cotton ball test is done to check the ID cleanliness of the tube. Thereafter pickled, dried, marked and packed.
All procedure is strictly followed as per TEMA "C" and ASTM A-688.
'U'-Bent Steel Tubes are manufactured in our plant as per the customer requirements. Bends can be Heat Treated in accordance with Clients' requirements followed by hydrostatic testing and dye penetrant testing if required.
U-bent stainless steel tubes are widely used in heat-exchanger systems. Heat-exchanger equipment on the basis of seamless stainless U-tubes is essential in strategically important and critical fields - nuclear and petrochemical machine building.
