Spiral steel pipe production process

    Spiral steel pipe is made by rolling low-carbon carbon structural steel or low-alloy structural steel strip into a tube blank at a certain spiral angle (called forming angle), and then welding the tube seam together. It can be made with a narrower strip Steel produces large diameter steel pipes. Its specifications are expressed by outer diameter * wall thickness, and the welded pipe shall ensure that the hydraulic test, the tensile strength and cold bending performance of the weld meet the requirements.


Industrial pipes:

    Spiral pipes are mainly used for oil and natural gas pipelines, and their specifications are expressed by outer diameter * wall thickness. Spiral pipes can be welded on one side or on both sides. Welded pipes should ensure that the water pressure test, the tensile strength of the weld and the cold bending performance meet the requirements.


Production Process:

(1) Raw materials are strip steel coils, welding wires, and fluxes. Strict physical and chemical tests are required before investment.

(2) Butt joint of strip steel head and tail, adopt single wire or double wire submerged arc welding, after coiling into steel pipe, adopt automatic submerged arc welding repair welding.

(3) Before forming, the strip undergoes leveling, edge trimming, edge planing, surface cleaning and conveying, and pre-bending treatment.

(4) The electric contact pressure gauge is used to control the pressure of the cylinders on both sides of the conveyor to ensure the smooth transportation of the strip.

(5) Adopt external control or internal control roll forming.

(6) The weld gap control device is used to ensure that the weld gap meets the welding requirements, and the pipe diameter, the amount of misalignment and the weld gap are strictly controlled.

(7) Both internal welding and external welding adopt American Lincoln electric welding machine for single-wire or double-wire submerged arc welding to obtain stable welding specifications.

(8) The welded seams after welding are all inspected by the online continuous ultrasonic automatic flaw instrument, which guarantees 100% non-destructive testing coverage of spiral welds. If there is a defect, it will automatically alarm and spray the mark, and the production workers can adjust the process parameters at any time to eliminate the defect in time.

(9) Air plasma cutting machine is used to cut the steel pipe into individual pieces.

(10) After cutting into single steel pipes, each batch of steel pipes must undergo a strict initial inspection system to check the mechanical properties, chemical composition, fusion status of the welds, the surface quality of the steel pipes and pass non-destructive inspections to ensure that the pipe-making process is qualified Later, it can be officially put into production.

(11) The parts with continuous sonic flaw detection marks on the weld are re-examined by manual ultrasonic and X-ray. If there are defects, after repairing, they will go through non-destructive inspection again until the defects are confirmed.

(12) The pipes where the strip steel butt welding seam and the D-shaped joint intersecting the spiral welding seam are all inspected by X-ray television or filming.

(13) Each steel pipe undergoes hydrostatic pressure test, and the pressure adopts radial seal. The test pressure and time are strictly controlled by the steel pipe hydraulic microcomputer detection device. The test parameters are automatically printed and recorded.

(14) The pipe end is machined to accurately control the verticality of the end face, the bevel angle and the obtuse edge.
