How to use a Electric Welded (ERW) Round Steel Tube

To determine if an electric-resistance-welded (ERW) round steel tube is the ideal choice for a construction, manufacturing, or repair operation, these guidelines should be reviewed. While ERW tubes are abundant across the market, they may not be the most suitable selection for every project. When selecting an optimal option, keep these factors in mind:

ERW round steel tubing can easily transition from structural to mechanical applications, such as in scaffolding, fencing, pipe supports, automotive parts, and plumbing. These versatile pieces can be found in many places around us.

If your project hinges upon a dependable weld joint, ERW tubing might not meet your needs, as electric welding renders it vulnerable to inferior bonding. Contrary to other techniques, it relies on an electric current to join the pieces, which can make for a weaker connection.

When precision is critical, ERW tubing is not recommended due to its lower leeway for error in comparison to seamless tubing. If your venture requires exact parameters, ERW tubing may not be the optimal selection.

ERW tubing is a more commonly-found product than seamless tubing, making it potentially more affordable for certain projects.

When debating if ERW round steel tubing is the most suitable selection for your upcoming project, here are several points to contemplate.
