Hot-rolled seamless steel pipe is manufactured by hot rolling technology, as the name suggests, the temperature of rolled piece is high, so the deformation resistance is small to achieve large deformation. Take rolling of steel plate for example, the general thickness of continuous casting slab is about 230mm, and after roughing mill and finishing mill, the final thickness is 1~20mm. At the same time, due to the small thickness ratio of steel plate, the dimension accuracy is relatively low, it’s not easy to cause shape problem.
Advantage of hot-rolled seamless steel pipe:
It can destroy the microstructure of ingot casting, grain refinement of steel and eliminate microstructure defects, so that make steel structure compact and improve the mechanical properties. This improvement is mainly reflected in the rolling direction, so that the steel no longer is isotropic; Formation of bubbles, cracks and loose when pouring can also be welded under high temperature and pressure.
The technological process of hot-rolled seamless steel pipe:
Round billet→heating→perforation→extrusion→sizing→hot rolling→cooling→straightening→hydrostatic test→signing→storage.
