can depend on copper, in large or small diameters, for liquid or gas, for
high or low pressure systems under a wide range of temperatures, and reduce
costs for any mechanical system.
Key benefits offered by copper tube include:
Copper has excellent thermal conductivity, corrosion
resistivity, and durability. Copper tubes are available in two basic types-
plumbing and for air conditioning/refrigeration. Easy to use and install,
these tubes are available in both drawn (hard) and annealed (soft) tempers
types. These tubes are also available in a wide range of diameters (from 1/8
inch to 12 inches) and wall thicknesses. Fittings that suit every design and
application can readily be obtained.
Variety of Applications
Tubes manufactures copper tubes for all kinds of mechanical systems. They
can be used for a variety of uses such as:
- Underground water and gas services
- Chilled water mains
- Oxygen systems
- Drainage and vent systems
- Heating systems (including solar)
- Water distribution systems
- Fuel-oil systems
- Non-flammable medical-gas systems
Wide Range of Sizes
Tubes offers copper tubes in a large variety of dimensions. These tubes can
be availed in large or small diameter, to fit every specifications. These
tubes are perfect for forced-circulation of hot water heating systems and
are economical with soldered joints and require less space for installation.
We also offer copper tubes to be used in drainage systems. Type DWV tube
has been successfully used for many years. Large-diameter tubes are also
available which are joined by soldering or brazing. These tubes are
cost-effective solutions for water distribution and also for fire-protection
risers in multi-story buildings. Copper's superior hydraulic-flow
characteristics permit precise tube and pump sizing.
Copper has been used for plumbing and mechanical systems
since metals were first employed in these applications. It offers a
dependable performance and hence more use of copper in an installation
assures reliability. Popularly used in heating systems, it is considered
superior to other metals.
Long Lasting and Maintenance Free
Copper has been used for century and satisfied its
customers with its durability. It has gain new popularity in its new form,
light, strong, corrosion-resistant tube. These tubes are long lasting,
maintenance- free and hence are extensively used for plumbing, heating,
cooling and other mechanical systems. In addition, the green film that forms
inside the copper tube is a natural protection against corrosion. Copper
offers trouble free performance and hence are extensively used by the
industry giants. Another benefit of copper is that is does not burn, nor
Copper's excellent corrosion resistance property and
hence is used in many systems. Solar energy systems benefit from copper's
resistance to both atmospheric and aqueous corrosion. Copper is also used in
water distribution and fire sprinkler systems. Internal corrosion resistance
results in superior flow capacity as compared to other materials, which
require additional allowances for corrosion, scaling, out-of-roundness and
smaller internal diameter when compared size-to-size with copper. Instead
copper tube bores remain smooth and internal diameters stay constant. Owing
to this feature, copper fire sprinkler system can use smaller diameters to
provide the same sprinkler coverage as a steel system - with significant
savings in installed costs.
High Thermal Conductivity
Copper has high thermal conductivity and heats up eight
times better than other metals. Hence these pipes are used in application
involving heat transfer from radiant heating to snow melting to direct
exchange, in geothermal pump systems. Copper is far better conductor of heat
when compared with other metals which proves advantageous in solar energy
systems where superior thermal conductivity means thinner copper sheets that
can collect same amount of heat as the gauge sheet of aluminum or steel and
hence copper collector tubes can be more widely spaced.
Easy to Join and Install
Copper is also advantageous as it adds system integrity
and also lowers installation costs as well as labor costs. Copper tubes and
fitting can easily be joined metallurgically by soldering or brazing and as
copper is ductile and can be customized to fit most design configurations.
Owing to copper's formability, it is often possible to eliminate the use of
fittings like elbows and joints.
An Abundant Resource
Copper is abundantly available and our stocks will lasts
for years. In addition, copper has an advantage; it can be recycled, owing
to which half of the copper used in India comes from recycled scrap, which
has been and will be used over and over again. Copper recovered is as usable
as the copper refined from ore.
