A Basic Introduction to Galvanised Steel Pipe. The Basics of Stainless Steel. As designers and manufactures of stainless steel welded pipes we thought it might be worthwhile giving a nod to this widely used material, offering some insight and information about its composition and makeup. What is stainless steel? Stainless is a term coined early in the development of these steels for cutlery applications. It was adopted as a generic name for these steels and now covers a wide range of steel types and grades for corrosion or oxidation resistant applications.

Stainless steels are iron alloys with a minimum of 10.5% chromium. Other alloying elements are added to enhance their structure and properties such as formability, strength and cryogenic toughness. These include metals such as: Nickel Molybdenum Titanium Copper Non-metal additions are also made, the main ones being: Carbon Nitrogen The main requirement for stainless steels is that they should be corrosion resistant for a specified application or environment.

Soldering, Brazing, and Welding – What’s the Difference? We often talk about our precision seam welded and fully press formed stainless steel pipe bends and segments that provide added value through ultra-modern mass production, however today we thought it might be useful to discuss the differences between soldering, welding and brazing. Soldering, brazing, and welding are all methods of joining two or more pieces of metal and selected other materials together.

They are also methods used to fill gaps in metal parts. In welding, the two metals (or thermoplastic) must be similar. For example, copper cannot be welded to steel. Welding uses high temperatures to melt and join two metal parts. A filler metal is often used as well. When properly done, the finished weld is as strong as the surrounding metal.

Brazing joins two metals by heating and melting a filler (alloy) that bonds to the two pieces of metal and joins them. Soldering is a low-temperature analog to brazing. Soldering is also used to join electrical components. Everything You Need to Know about Powder Coating. Everything You Need to Know about Powder Coating Posted on Updated on At Jacob UK we design and manufacture many high quality tubing and pipe systems, one of which is power-coated pipes, so we thought it might be worth sharing some background information on just what powder coating is. What is Powder Coating? Powder coating is a dry finishing process that has become extremely popular since its introduction in North America in the 1960s.

Powder is used on a wide variety of products. How Powder Coating Works Powder coatings are based on polymer resin systems, combined with curatives, pigments, levelling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives. Sometimes a powder coating is applied during a fluidized bed application. Durability of Powder Coating Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on thousands of products you come in contact with each day. It’s tough. Like this: Like Loading...

How Does an O Ring Seal Work? At Jacob UK one of the many expert designed and manufactured products we offer ate metal detectable O rings/ ring seals to seal push in pipes. Designed specifically for use with a push in pipe and pull ring, ring seals ensure a tight connection and fixed length. O-rings are probably the most common fluid power seals. They’re made by the billions by manufacturers all around the world, and they prevent leaks in everything from pumps and valves to cylinders and connectors.

The compact, economical components handle both static and dynamic operations, in pneumatic and hydraulic applications. These simple seals consist of a donut-shaped ring with a circular cross section. They’re typically made of elastomers like Buna N, Neoprene or silicone, but they also come in plastics like PTFE, metals and other materials. Sizes range from fractions of an inch in diameter to several meters across. When properly sized, the clearance between the surfaces is less the OD of the O-ring.

Cutting Edge Pipe Systems for Biomass Boilers. Food Grade Stainless Steel Pipe To Exceed Expectations. The finishing of stainless steel handling systems for food applications is more complicated than non-sanitary applications. You must be familiar with sanitary standards so the system and its finish are optimal the demands for this type of application.

Designing, fabricating, assembling, finishing, and cleaning your final choice of system for food-grade applications has countless requirements that must be adhered to at every step of the way. The term food grade and its many variants refers to surfaces that have a finish that is safe for processing food products and can easily and reliably be cleaned and made sterile. The finishing of food-grade stainless steel must result in surfaces devoid of areas that encourage bacteria growth. The surfaces must be free of lines, grooves, pits, or divots. Additionally, the surfaces must withstand corrosion from the food being handled and the chemicals used to sanitize the equipment. Brief Guide to Pipe Components and Fittings. Pipe components are used to connect pipe and tubing sections of varying shapes, sizes, and purposes. Fittings such as these come in a variety of materials depending on its specific requirements.

Galvanized and stainless steel tend to be the most commonly used materials due to their ability to resists corrosion, heat, and chemical damage. Moreover, stainless steel is incredibly strong, allowing for reduced thickness, which is both cost-effective and convenient when it comes to the manufacture of small fittings. Jacob, the leading experts in pipework systems in the United Kingdom, have a range of quick-connect components, such as U-shapes seals, that are built specifically for ease of use and speed in installation and dismantling.

Stainless steel pipework has a number of benefits across a number of industries, from food production to manufacturing. Although slightly more expensive, those that replace old plastic pipework with stainless steel components will benefit from a number of advantages, including: Low level corrosion: Stainless steel corrodes at a far lower rate than a number of cheaper metals and materials. As such, the metal retains a rust-free exterior for a number of years. Strong Stainless steel is one of the strongest metals used for pipework, and resists damage better that most. Environmentally Friendly Smaller As the mass flow rate in stainless steel pipes is far higher per diameter than most other materials, they can be made significantly smaller.
