Some Knowledge About Spiral Steel Pipes

Jan. 11, 2020

One: What are the characteristics of spiral tube offline normalizing after hot rolling?

The spiral steel pipe is the national standard steel grade of GB5310-2008 high-pressure boiler seamless steel pipe. Its steel type is the most widely used steel pipe for boiler steel pipes. It is mainly used for manufacturing high-pressure and higher parameter boiler pipes.

Such as: low-temperature section superheater, reheater, economizer and water-cooled wall, etc .; large-diameter spiral tubes are used for steam pipes and headers with a wall temperature ≤ 450 ° C (coalifier, water-cooled wall, low-temperature superheater and reheater combination). Box) Pipe accessories such as medium temperature ≤450 ℃.

Therefore, during use, the normal temperature and high temperature strength of the spiral tube, as well as plasticity and toughness, have high requirements. The large-caliber spiral tube is mainly produced by a thermal control unit. In order to meet the mechanical performance indicators, hot rolling is usually used. After offline normalizing process. In order to make full use of the advantages of the thermal expansion process, improve production efficiency, reduce the production process of the spiral tube, shorten the production cycle, and save energy.

The main purpose of the spiral tube heat treatment process is to eliminate as far as possible the structural defects formed by rolling, improve the structure state, and improve the macro mechanical properties.

Therefore, the on-line normalizing process route is used to produce the spiral tube in order to improve the production efficiency of the thermal expansion unit and reduce the damage to the iron-based material structure caused by burning and repeated heating.

2: Method and application of welding large diameter spiral steel pipe

Welding method

For welding thick-walled spiral tubes, first clean the oil, paint, water, rust, etc. of the welded joint, and then open the bevel according to the wall thickness. The thicker one is opened larger, and the thinner one is opened smaller (angle grinder). The gap of the product is generally 1 to 1.5 times the diameter of the electrode or wire. If the groove is accidentally opened, it can be appropriately small. Spot solid welding is at least three points, generally four points are better to work. When welding, it should be half and half. The starting point should preferably be about one centimeter above the bottom point, so that the joint is good from the opposite side. If the wall of the steel pipe is thick, it should be layered, at least two layers, and the second layer can be welded after the first layer has been completely welded.

2. Use

Thick-walled steel pipes are mainly used in water engineering, petrochemical industry, chemical industry, electric power industry, agricultural irrigation, and urban construction. For liquid transportation: water supply and drainage. For gas transportation: coal gas, steam, liquefied petroleum gas. For structural use: used as pile pipe, bridge; pier, road, building structure pipe, etc.

There are two possibilities for the formation of surface defects on spiral steel pipes

There are two possibilities for the formation of surface defects on spiral steel pipes: one is that the material itself is not plastic enough during deformation, resulting in the formation of cracks and external folds; the other is that the surface oxidation of the material causes surface defects, and the surface defects are enlarged during the deformation process. Cracks and folds.

Three: Thermal simulation tensile test results and analysis

In order to study the high temperature plasticity of materials, a series of thermal simulation tensile experiments were performed.

It can be found that 900-1 200 ℃ is the high plastic zone of 9Ni steel, and its tensile deformation can reach more than 90%. Comparing the deformation amount and deformation temperature of each stage of tube rolling, it is not difficult to find that the two steps of perforation and diagonal rolling are in the high plastic area, and the deformation amount is far less than the material's deformation ability. Although the temperature in the final stage of the sizing step is lower than 900 ° C, the previous analysis has shown that defects outside the tube surface form before sizing. Therefore, it can be considered that the small outer folds and cracks appearing in this rolling are not caused by the poor plasticity of the material itself.

Although the surface of the oxidized sample was smooth, fine grain boundary oxidation occurred between the oxide layer and the metal interface after 1 h, as shown in Figure 4 (b). As the oxidation time lengthens, the grain boundary oxidation depth further deepens. At this time, the rate of grain boundary oxidation is higher than that of the metal in the oxide phase. When the grain boundary oxidation depth reaches a certain level, with the extension of the oxidation time, the thickness of the oxide layer further increases, but the grain boundary oxidation depth does not further increase. It can be seen that the rate of grain boundary oxidation and the internal advancement of the oxide phase metal reached equilibrium.
