Boiler Tube is a kind of steel pipe which can be divided into seamless and welded steel pipe by producing process. The specification range for boiler tube is very wide, it covers from small diameter pipe to large diameter pipe with vary pipe length. Depending on the temperature level, boiler tube can be divided into general type boiler tube and high pressure boiler tube. In Shinestar, our factory can produce different types of boiler tube based on the use requirements. 
Boiler Tube Weight Formular:
 [(OD - Wall Thickness) * Thickness] * 0.02466 = kg / m (weight per meter)
Boiler tube can be used for transmission pipe, thermal equipment, industrial petroleum geology exploration, container, chemical industry and special purposes. Also, it can be used to make water wall tube, boiling water pipe, superheated steam pipes, superheated steam locomotive boiler tubes, and large or small funnels and arch brick pipe. For high pressure boiler tube is mainly used to manfuacture high and altra-high pressure boiler superheater tubes, reheater tube, airway, and steam pipe. High pressure boiler tubehas stable supply and demand trend in the whole boiler tube industry. In the future, the high pressure boiler tube industry will be further differentiation. High pressure boiler tube will be widely promoted due to its new energy saving advantages. 
Mechanical properties of the boiler tube is the important indicator to ensure the end use properties. In the steel standard, according to different requirements, the provisions of the tensile properties (tensile strength, yield strength or yield point elongation) and hardness, toughness index, as well as user requirements of high and low temeprature properties. General, boiler tube is used in the temperature below 305 degree, so our boiler tube is manufactured by hot rolled or cold drawn steel tube. High pressure boiler tubes is often used in the high temperature and high pressure conditions for transmission gas and steam. In order to avoid oxidation and corrosion, boiler tubes require durable steel with high strength, high oxidation resistance, and good organization stability.
