Studded Tube and Pipe

tsi studded tube page main image of studded tubes

If you’re looking for quality studded tubes or pipes, you’ve come to the right place.

The stud pipe or stud tube is used by refining and petrochemical industries for many different applications - including fired heaters and furnaces. It’s also used as an alternative to high frequency welded finned tubes (HF finned tubes).

Studs are attached to the pipe around the circumference in completely opposing pairs by means of electrical resistance welding. They are attached to ensure a high integrity bond for strength and heat flow.

A bonus of studded pipe is that it’s relatively easy to clean. It’s ideal for applications where heavy fouling of the external surface may occur, or for processes undertaken in harsh environments, where dirty fuels are used. The surface can be efficiently shot blasted (without damaging it).

Stud welding tests

Here at USEL Tubular Division, we regularly carry out welding tests to ensure the effectiveness of the studded pipe, however, this is an extra service we provide. We also carry out heat treatment of completed stud tubes where necessary.
