Hydraulic applications are piping systems designed to transfer high-pressure fluid or steam. There is a variety of hydraulic applications used in many industries. Industries like; Oil, Aerospace, Ship Hull Designing, and Machine Manufacturers. These are just some of the common examples of hydraulic applications in which steel tubing is needed.
Due to the abrasive nature of many fluids and their various temperatures, it is important to use the proper piping materials. Steel tubing which typically has a chemically treated surface (known as pickled carbon steel pipe), is recommended for hydraulic applications. Using steel tubing is important because other materials such as galvanized pipe will corrode over time. Steel alloy pipe should be used for all components of a hydraulic piping system. This includes couplings, flanges, as well as steel nipples.
Avoiding corrosion when constructing a hydraulic piping system is important. Having rust or debris from corroding pipes enter the material being transferred will have a severe negative impact on the quality. Corrosion can also lead to chemical spills. These are hazardous to the environment, wildlife, and population living nearby. The need for anti-corrosion and tight specifications are very common if you are supplying steel tubing and fittings for aircraft in the Aerospace industry.
