Heavy Wall Tubing

Heavy Wall Tubing

Since 1934, Detroit Nipple Works has manufactured high-quality tubing products and supplied them to clients. This includes specialized products such as heavy wall tubing. This type of wall tubing has unique applications, making it perfect when all the conditions are met. But what is heavy wall tubing?

What is Heavy Wall Tubing?

Heavy wall tubing, also known as thick-wall tubing, is tubing made specifically for thicker walls. During construction, companies often decide to increase the thickness of the wall if they are going to be running piping through it. This wall thickness adds strength and durability, making it suitable for various industrial applications. Thick-wall tubing has many advantages compared to standard tubes, such as withstand harsh conditions, high pressures, or mechanical stress. 

Variety of Industrial Applications

Using heavy wall tubings can provide many benefits due to their ability to withstand harsh conditions, high pressures, or mechanical stress. As a result, this tubing can be found in a variety of industrial applications where the tubing may be subject to significant pressure, corrosion, or other harsh conditions. Industries such as oil/gas, petrochemical, aerospace, automotive, and construction commonly use thick-wall tubing for these qualities.  The increased wall thickness allows heavy wall tubing to better resist deformation, rupture, or collapse under these challenging conditions.

Materials for Your Application

The choice of thick-wall tubing can vary depending on the specific requirements of a project. Fortunately, our company offers this type of tubing in various materials. These materials include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, or other alloys, to meet the corrosion resistance and strength needs of your specific application. You can contact Detroit Nipple Works to understand what options are available for you. 

Critical Integrity and Safety Components

Overall, heavy wall tubing is a critical component in many industrial and engineering applications where the integrity of the tubing is essential to the safety and functionality of the system.
