Aluminium offers greater benefits to manufacturers and end users than other materials, including:
Aluminium tube is strong but lightweight. Aluminium has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. The strength of aluminium and aluminium alloys is equivalent to the cumulative weight of steel.
Aluminium tube is durable. Aluminium materials have the ability to resist various environmental factors, including corrosive substances and UV radiation. This quality ensures the replacement of aluminium products.
Advantages of aluminium tube welding technology: The thin-walled copper-aluminium tube welding technology, which is suitable for industrial production, is known as a world-class problem and is a key technology for replacing copper with aluminium in air conditioner connecting tubes.
Aluminium tubes are easily processed using several different manufacturing processes, including rolling, extrusion, forging, casting, etc., as aluminium can be made from various alloys with different properties. These processes can be used in almost any application.
Aluminium is non-flammable. Although aluminium does melt at around 600 degrees Fahrenheit, it does not burn or release potentially harmful gases.
Aluminium has high electrical and thermal conductivity, making it suitable for electrical and heat transfer applications.
Aluminium is highly recyclable, allowing manufacturers to use and reuse materials in building applications. Aluminium pipe generally provides many advantages to manufacturers and end users, such as excellent strength-to-weight ratio, excellent compression and support properties, and the entire tube's uniformity. In general, aluminium tubes are cost-effective substitutes for steel, suitable for a variety of manufacturing applications.
We all know that aluminium pipe has excellent corrosion resistance, but what should we do if there is rust on the surface of the aluminium pipe?
Use acid pickling and rust removal. When pickling aluminium tubes to remove corrosion, the oil stains on the surface of the corroded aluminium tube must be removed first. If the oil stains are not removed, the rust will not be removed. However, the efficiency of this method is low, and the rust removal time is long. Acid pickling rust removal is easy to operate, the substrate loss is small, and the surface of the profile is in a semi-bright state after rust removal, which can be directly colored or oxidized.
Use alkaline solution to remove scale. Put the rusted aluminium in an alkaline chemical solution. First, we must decide which alkaline solution to use based on the type of material and the surface condition of the aluminium material. Second, if there is grease on the surface of the aluminium, the grease must be cleaned first. If the oil stains are not removed, the quality of the surface treatment may be reduced. Alkali pickling is the same as acid pickling, with long chemical reaction time and relatively long post-processing time.
