Precautions for storage of seamless steel tubes

There are many types of seamless pipes, galvanized seamless steel pipes are an important category because of their outstanding characteristics. Seamless steel tubes are widely used in the manufacture of structural parts and mechanical parts, such as petroleum drill rods and automobile transmission shafts, which can improve material utilization, simplify manufacturing processes, save materials and processing hours, and have been widely used in steel tubes. If it is not stored properly, it will cause a series of problems such as rust and alkalization of seamless steel pipes. Therefore, we have summarized the following storage precautions of seamless steel pipes:


1) The site or warehouse where the steel is kept should be selected in a clean, well-drained place away from factories and mines that produce harmful gases or dust. Clean weeds and debris on the site and keep the steel clean;


2) Do not store acid, alkali, salt, cement and other materials that are corrosive to steel in the warehouse. Different types of steel should be stacked separately to prevent confusion and prevent contact corrosion;


3) Large-sized steel, steel rails, shame steel plates, large-caliber steel pipes, forgings, etc. can be stacked in the open air;


4) Some small steels, thin steel plates, steel strips, silicon steel sheets, small-caliber or thin-walled steel pipes, various cold-rolled and cold-drawn steels, and expensive and easily corroded metal products can be stored in the warehouse.
