What are hydraulic system applications?

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, Ship Hull Designing, and Machine Manufacturers.  These are just some of the common examples of hydraulic applications in which steel tubing is needed.

Why use steel tubing for hydraulic applications?

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.

Oil Production Up in 2017?

Although the oil industry puts out oil production predictions in the United States, each month production in the oil industry changes. It is important to remember that projections can change as the year progresses. Why is this important to us? Well, it affects demand for pipe and pipe nipples and fittings. If and when the oil production goes up, states like; North Dakota, California or Texas, will be directly affected.  In that case, Detroit Nipple Works will have the materials that companies in the oil industry need.

Oil Piping Systems For Production Increase

After a drop in oil production from August to September of 2016, oil production made its way back up. According to the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment), oil production will stay at a steady pace with small increases and decreases majority of the year. However, towards the end of 2017 (September- December), oil production is projected to have a drastic increase. 

With the increase of oil production towards the end of 2017, the oil industry will prepare for improvements in production. In order to maintain an improve oil production, it is important to ensure that pipelines are in good shape. High quality industrial piping materials are used throughout the year to make repairs and improvements to oil piping systems in the United States. For areas like North Dakota, upgrading their oil piping systems in winter can be a challenge.
