Tubes for pressure equipment of fine grain steels

Application examples:

  • energy installations (for the transport of high-pressure steam or para-hydrogen);
  • cooling systems (for transporting cooling water to cool equipment or technological processes);
  • chemical installations (for the transport of chemical liquids and gases);
  • steam systems (for transporting high-pressure steam);
  • industrial installations (for the transport of hot water, steam, chemical liquids and gases);
  • heating installations (for the transport of high-pressure steam or hot water);
  • gas installations (for the transport of natural gases and propane-butane).

Tolerance D (outside diameter)

hot finished tubes: D  ≤ 219,1 mm: ± 1 %, min ± 0,5 mm
cold finished tubes: ± 0,5 %, min ± 0,3 mm

Tolerance T (wall thickness)

hot finished tubes: D  ≤ 219,1 mm: ± 12,5 %, min ± 0,4 mm
cold finished tubes: ± 10 %, min ± 0,2 mm


< 0,0015 of pipe lenght (below 3 mm per every meter of pipe length)


The tubes from 21.3 mm diameter and the wall thickness from 2.3 mm are supplied as hot rolled. The smaller diameter tubes are supplied as cold drawn and subsequently heat treated. Based on an agreement it is possible to deliver boiler tubes with dimensions and tolerances according to the dimensional specifications for precision tubes.
