MPL Steel ERW Pipes to see headwinds in the near future

ERW (Electric Resistance Welding) pipes are the fastest growing segment in the steel pipe industry, today. To manufacture ERW pipes, reputed, reliable steel pipe manufacturers like MPL Steel use high-quality steel that is low in carbon, fully killed fine-ground, control-rolled and continuously cast. MPL Steel ERW pipes are formed by cold-forming sheets of HR steel into a cylindrical shape. Current is then passed between the two edges of the steel to heat the steel to a point at which the edges are forced together to form a bond without the use of welding filler material.These ERW pipes are used to transport oil, natural gas and other vapor-liquid objects, and can meet various high- and low-pressure requirements. Trusted for its high malleability, superior strength and durability,the most significant characteristic of MPL Steel ERW pipe is that it doesn’t rust or corrode. Another advantage is that since only the tube ends of the pipe are heated and fused, the entire length of the pipe is clean. Cleaning or trimming is only required where the tube is welded. This reduces that post-weld cleaning process. Yet another advantage is the fact that the only change in dimension throughout the length of the pipe occurs at the welded seam points which are trimmed or ground away. This leaves a clean flat seam that runs the entire length of the tube and standardises the dimension throughout and makes the installation of ERW Steel pipes easier, in a constricted area. ERW pipes are used extensively by the oil & gas industry, for structural /civil engineering,plumbing, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning purposes, electrical conduit pipes, fencing, cabling, ducting, irrigation, auto, power plants, water and sewage, metros, airports, metros, fabrication, solar plants, windmills malls etc. Government infrastructure schemes such as BharatmalaPariyojana, Pradhan Mantri-AwazYojna that aims to build one crore houses and other infrastructure schemes will push the demand for ERW Steel pipes go up. As India looks inward build a more self-reliant nation and as it looks outwards towards building stronger global partnerships, it is but natural that this product that plays an arterial role in the movement of several critical components in almost every important industry, will see headwinds in the near future.
