Perforated Tubes in Hydraulic Pressure Systems

A failed filter will wreak havoc in a hydraulic system. Particles that aren’t trapped in the filter media will cause wear, damage seals and block small orifices like those in servo valves. Without effective filters hydraulic equipment will fail prematurely, needing expensive repairs and causing costly downtime. That’s why every hydraulic pressure system is designed with filters. Two essential but often overlooked aspects of a hydraulic system filter are the inner support tube and the outer protective cage. These provide

What It Means To Be ISO 9001:2015 Certified

We’re not the only company who has their ISO 9001 certification. Where we think we differ is how we view it. Some companies see certification as a mark of achievement, and it is, but we view it more as a tool that helps us meet the expectations of our customers. Here’s a deeper dive into the topic to explain this attitude.   An Overview of ISO 9001   ISO is the International Standards Organization. It’s through their work, and that

The 8 Benefits to the Spiral Welded Perforated Tubes

Given that there are at least three ways to make a metal tube, it’s reasonable to ask which is best. Each manufacturing method has advantages and disadvantages but which matter most depends on the end application. Here we’ll review the process used for making spiral welded tubes and identify the benefits that result.   Tube Manufacturing Methods   Rube Goldberg could probably come up with a dozen different ways to produce tubing, but there are only three that you’re likely

7 Reasons Why You Should Choose Perforated Tubes Inc. Over Our Competitors

    Our products might not be as diversified as it’s uses but we understand how crucial it is to have parts you can rely on to get the job done.  Our Process Mastery   We’d venture to say that perforated tubes are unlike any other fabricated product. When we started out we had to develop the production technology that makes them possible. As a result, we’d argue that today our expertise in every aspect of their manufacture is deeper

Benefits of Using A Custom Perforated Tubes Manufacturer

Product differentiation is essential for business success. It protects against price competition and helps increase margins. For businesses that make a physical product, custom components are an effective way of achieving differentiation. Competitors all have access to the same parts catalogs but working with a custom manufacturer lets a business offer unique features and capabilities.   “Custom” Perforated Tubes The design requirements for any perforated tube product are usually quite complex. At the same time though, they usually come down

Why Perforated Tubes Are Essential To The Aerospace Industry

According to the National Safety Council (NSC) flying commercial is just about the safest way to travel. Even so, many passengers have a fear of flying and for one rather obvious reason. Unlike in a car or on a train or boat, if a problem should occur you can’t just coast to a halt. This is why quality standards for aerospace components are so demanding: every component has to perform as expected and there’s no margin for error. Perforated tubes

About Open Area Perforation Pattern And Why It’s Important

About Open Area Perforation Pattern And Why It’s Important An important parameter to consider when specifying perforated tubing is “Open Area” or OA. OA has a big impact on appearance and governs how the tubing functions in some applications. Here we’ll explain what the term means and it’s influence on in-service performance.   All About the Ratio Perforated tubes are formed from metal sheet or coil that’s been through a punch. The punch creates a pattern of holes. These can

The Benefits of Zinc Plating on Perforated Tubes

Benefits of Zinc Plating on Perforated Tubes Just as a comedian is often funnier with a sidekick, steel performs better with a layer of zinc. Steel, other than the stainless kind, needs some kind of protective coating if it’s not to corrode. Painting and powder coating have their place, but in many applications zinc plating is the way to go. By preventing corrosion it allows the use of less expensive materials, but that’s not the only benefit. Here’s a closer

How Are Perforated Tubes Utilized in Agriculture

In many ways, perforated tubes are necessary to keep agriculture running. While the industry as a whole has an immeasurable number of moving parts, perforated tubes play an important role in several key systems and contribute to many of the modern conveniences that farmers enjoy today. Water Management It’s estimated that about 70% of the global freshwater supply is used for agriculture. Where there’s water, there’s a need for filtration. Perforated tubes and pipes are critical for such applications as

Get to Know Inconel

Inconel is a trademarked superalloy that’s engineered specifically for extreme applications. When you need perforated tubes that can withstand harsh temperatures or corrosive environments, then Inconel may just be the metal of choice. The Workhorse of Metals Inconel is known for its strength and reliability. It was created by merging the best characteristics of other metals, like nickel, chromium, iron, manganese, carbon and more, into one superalloy. The end result is a material that’s well-suited for extreme environments. It can
