TAG: Perforated Metal, Metal Tube, Advantages of Perforated Metal Tube
Perforated metal tubes are popularly used in filter products as support tubing and sometimes it is used directly as filter tube and cylinder for certain industries. We can manufacture perforated tube solutions with high tolerances and straight or flared ends to allow for unrestricted flow, facilitating flow pressure and temperature measurements. Construction of our tubes can include spiral or longitudinal welded seams or lock seams and you can choose any combinations from a selection of hole sizes and patterns.
Micron opening perforated metal tubes are used as filters or screens itself in the screening of coal, gravel and ore; in the shifting and separation of food products, medical material, fine chemicals and oil. Made of quality stainless steel or carbon steel sheets, perforated filter tubes and cylinders can be made spiral welded or butt welded in a wide range of sizes.
Materials: stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum or other materials. The mostly used stainless steel perforated tubes include 304, 304L, 316, 316L.
Hole pattern: round, square, hexagonal, oval and special hole patterns.
Open area: it will determine the strength of the support tube and the filter flow.
The thickness of perforated metal tubes: 0.2mm to 15mm
Opening diameter: 0.2mm to 100mm
What is the smallest hole size that you can perforate?
The smallest hole that can be perforated is typically equal to the material thickness. The physical and chemical properties of certain materials like brass and aluminum allow smaller holes than the material thickness to be perforated.
What standard hole patterns are available?
The Perforating Industry has defined a number of standard hole patterns, they can be found in our site.
Can I get the exact pattern that I am looking for?
Our perforating's standard tooling allows over a thousand different patterns to be produced. Often we can come very close to what you are looking for. We can also manufacture special tooling to meet your needs. This is very economical when you have a larger need for a certain pattern.
What is the thinnest material you can perforate?
We can perforate stainless foil down to a thickness of 0.008".
What materials can be perforated?
Numerous metals and plastics can be perforated. Commonly perforated materials can be found under Material Info.
What open areas can be achieved?
The open area of a perforated sheet is dependent on the hole pattern and can be calculated using the open area formulas.
What factors determine the cost of a perforated part?
The main factors influencing the perforated part cost are: material cost, the perforated pattern's level of difficulty (hole size versus material thickness, margins), tolerances and the quantity ordered.
