Steel Tubes is an integral part of the tubing systems. Tube systems around the world involve connections which are provided by tube fittings. Steel Tubes is consumed in bulk and provides for onward transmission of liquids and gases. Tubes are designed keeping four aspects in mind:
- ● Designed to have the highest pressure rating which defines the maximum pressures the tube is designed to withstand.
- ● Designed to have a high vacuum which is the maximum vacuum pressure that can be created in the tube.
- ● Tubes are designed on bend radius. The Minimum bend radius is a rating based on the acceptable amount of deformation the tubing cross-section can undergo.
- ● And finally the most important aspect is the Temperature range, which defines the full range of various temperatures that the tubing is designed to operate within.
- ● Tubes can be connected to tube fitting by swaging the ferrule to the nuts and tubes.

VALUE ADDITION IN TUBE
We provide the following value addition to the tube:
Cut To Length: Tubes can be supplied in full sizes or cut to length as per your requirement.
Beveling: Tubes can be beveled at the ends to make it suitable for welding purposes and other applications.
Polishing: Tubes can be polished for mirror finish of various classes such as 4, 6, 7 & 8 class finish.
Heat Treatment: To change the mechanical properties of Tubes and make it suitable for some applications, Steel Tubes undergoes heat treatment process.
Positive Material Identification: We have an in-house PMI machine to identify all the tubing while arrival as well as dispatch so the tubing matches the order specifications.
Suggestions: We offer various suggestions and alternatives depending on the client size and application requirements.
We supply Tubing which is procured from A-Class mills around the world. We provide Steel Tubes of European, Japanese, Chinese and Indian origin. Our intelligent procurement system tracks real time prices of Steel Tubes and the available quantities in the industry as well as in stock. We are able to provide rock bottom prices to the customers with immediate delivery for small and major needs in standard sizes.
TUBE QUALITY CONTROL
As a Steel Tube supplier, Midland Alloys is backed by all the possible certifications of a World class mill including ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2007, OHSAS 18001: 2004 & CE-PED 97/23/EC. We are also members of various renowned agencies and Chambers of Commerce including MASSMA, EEPC, FICCI, FIEO, Indian Merchants Chamber etc.
100% of Steel Tubes is checked in house for Surface Finish, Compliance to specifications as per ASTM Standards, Outer Diameter, Thickness, Inside Diameter, Inside Finish, Marking, Ends and Finishing. This ensures that we never face a rejection for the Steel Tubes supplied.We stock and outsource tubing from 1/16” to 2”.
The tubes are marked in requirement of the International standards ASTM, AISI, JIS, BIS. with the format BRAND-SIZE-SPECIFICATION-GRADE-HEAT NUMBER-LOT NUMBER.
This format helps for identification of the Steel Tubes Manufacturers as well is supported with the Material Test Report. This is 100% traceable to the mill from which the material is procured.
TUBE PACKING AND DOCUMENTATION
Steel Tubes is subject to surface wash and cleaning to remove all impurities with it being in stock. Then it is wrapped in thin plastic. The ends are protected by plastic caps to avoid any damage in transit. Then tubing is bundled in bubble wrap followed by assorting them in colored plastic goonies or bundles. Then an outer rope is tied to protect the tubing and they are packed in wooden box or container.
We provide Steel Tubes Suppliers with documents such as commercial invoice, packing list, Test Reports, HS Code, Country of Origin attested by chamber of commerce, Fumigation Certificate, Warranty Letter, and Base Material Certificates.
Each heat and lot of steel tubing is supplied with a material test certificate as per EN 10204 NACE 3.1 standards indicating the chemical and mechanical properties of the fittings along with pressure rating. We also confirm the guarantee of the fittings supplied as per Purchase order specifications and attest the same in the Material Test Certificate. We also welcome any third party inspection from an agency nominated by the customer to comply with NACE 3.2 Certification if required by the customer at an extra cost.
