Many people are unaware of what DOM tubing really is. It is not an actual type of tubing. It is a process in which the tubing is put through called “Drawn Over a Mandrel”. This process gives it a much smoother surface, leaving no seam visible to the naked eye. With welded alloys, you may notice areas on your tubing where you are able to see or feel where it was soldered. The material you see or feel creates space between the connection of alloys, making a less durable connection. Because of the microscopic seam of DOM tubing, a much more accurate measurement occurs allowing a perfect fit for connections.
Because of the durability of DOM tubing, it is used in products susceptible to high impact situations. This includes all street roll bars, racing roll bars for cars under 3500 pounds, automotive, motorcycle, and industrial applications. In constructing these types of cages it is very important that nothing is going to slip out of place or worse, break. The use of DOM tubing allows the secure durability needed to keep riders safe.
It may come as a shock, but pricing differences between DOM tubing or other welded alloys is not much. You may pay a few more cents per pound, but using the proper material which will provide max durability is very important. Detroit Nipple Works has a variety of lengths or diameters of DOM tubing for sale for whatever job you may have.

Many of us live in homes that are older than us, homes that were built in the early 1900′s. Although our homes may seem to be in excellent condition, you my still want to think about replacing those old pipes. Whether leaky or not, piping used in the early 1900′s can cause problems. Lead pipes were used in the early 1900′s when installing plumbing into homes. If not removed lead pipes can cause hazards to your health.
The best option when replacing lead pipes in your home is to replace them with PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride pipe. PVC pipe is made to be resistant to corrosion, rust, or decay, resulting in a much longer and safer lifespan. With old lead pipes as fluids transfer through, lead is released into the water flow. This means lead would be in drinking water, water used for growing vegetables, as well as the water we cleanse ourselves with.
Make sure to walk through your home and check your pipes, if you do not know what lead pipes look like, call a plumber and have them inspect your home for harmful pipes. If you need to purchase PVC piping, Detroit Nipple Works has all the PVC sizes you need. Contact us today!

In the power generation industry, chemical processing, and petroleum refinement, chrome moly alloy tube has become the industry standard. Chromoly tubing as it is often referred is known for being corrosion resistance, high-temperature strength, and having overall strength as some of the benefits of Chrome Moly Alloy Tubes. Chrome-Moly is an alloy of steel which incorporates both Molybdenum and Chromium in the process.
Chrome-Moly Alloy Tubing is not lighter than steel. The average weight for both is 491 lbs. per cubic feet. But chrome moly alloy pipe has a better strength to weight ratio. Because of this type of tubing can have thinner walls or smaller diameters to reduce the weight.
One of the most popular grades of chromoly is 4130. what this means is, the first number is the mayor alloy element, the second number determines the percentage of the major alloying element. The third number and the forth number determine the carbon content of the steel. Contact us to get prices and order information.
