SEAMLESS TUBE

Raw Material Processing
Our solutions are designed to help seamless tube manufacturers meet the challenges of improving product quality and reducing costs

 

Castrol’s Liquid Engineers have developed solutions to help seamless tube manufacturers meet the challenges of improving product quality, reduce costs and deliver value in billet preparation, cold forming, cutting and sawing.

 

Using our extensive knowledge of tube manufacturing processes and recognizing the expectations your customers have, we offer a range of high performance greases, gear and hydraulic oils which can help you reduce your cost of ownership. Our Liquid Engineers work with you to identify key applications that could benefit from high performance lubricants:

 

ACHIEVE CRITICAL DEFORMATION REQUIREMENTS

  • Neat metalworking fluids with high levels of lubricity for use in forming high strength stainless steel and nickel alloy tubes

PRODUCE CLEANER BARS AND ENSURE TUBES HAVE AN EXCELLENT SURFACE FINISH

  • High performance synthetic and emulsion machining fluids and cleaners to ensure a good surface finish of pre-formed bars and tubes
  • Advanced synthetic forming fluids for carbon steel tube drawing and pilgering operations that also remove the need for cleaning
  • A range of corrosion preventives, including low volatile organic compounds (VOC), offering excellent protection for tubes in storage or during transport

REDUCE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP, IMPROVE ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

  • Reduce maintenance costs associated with using and managing cleaning and rinsing chemicals
  • Long lasting synthetic fluids reduce fluid consumption
  • Improved fluid system stability reduces waste volumes
  • Lower energy costs for heating cleaning systems
  • A cleaner working environment for operators
