Pipelines

When it needs to stay permanently tight

We produce ready-to-install piping, bent, with brazed or assembled connections and deformed pipe ends.

Applications

  • Fuel lines
  • Hydraulic lines
  • Coolant lines
  • Exhaust gas recirculation systems
  • Oil lines (exhaust gas turbocharger)

Technical framework

Dimensions

  • Tube outer diameter 6 - 30 mm
  • Wall thickness 0,5 - 2 mm
  • Length of piping up to 1.5 m

Bending radii

  • approx. 1.5 x D - 2.5 x D
  • up to three different bending radii in one tube

Procedure

Pipe end deformation

  • Expanding and reducing
  • Upsetting hose beads
  • Combinations of both

Mounting

  • Cutting ring pre-assembly by pre-assembly device
  • Joining by press-fitting (for subsequent brazing)
  • Joining by fixing with spot weld (for subsequent brazing)

Soldering

  • High-temperature brazing under inert gas atmosphere in continuous furnace (by service provider) with the following solders:
  • Cu solder (standard)
  • Ag solder (on customer request)
  • Ni-base solder (for high temperature applications up to approx. 850°C)
