Aluminum Pipe

An aluminum pipe is a cylindrical tube made of aluminum metal. It can be manufactured in various sizes and thicknesses, depending on the specific application it is intended for. Aluminum tubing is used in consumer items, recreational merchandise, machine parts, and automotive and manufacturing. Suppliers choose aluminum for its strength because it is only one percent the weight of steel. 

Because of its strength and flexibility, structures are often constructed with aluminum tubing. Aluminum tubing, given its lightweight nature, provides a greater volume of tubing per weight than steel. Many products benefit from lighter piping, particularly those needing a mobility degree, such as wheelchairs and outdoor furnishings.

Aluminum pipes have several useful properties, such as a high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and good thermal conductivity. Due to these characteristics, they are widely used in a range of applications in various industries, such as:

  • Construction: Aluminum pipes are used for plumbing, air conditioning, and ventilation systems due to their corrosion-resistant properties and lightweight nature.
  • Transportation: Aluminum pipes are used in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries due to their strength, durability, and lightweight properties.
  • Electrical: Aluminum pipes are used in electrical conduits, as they are good conductors of electricity and can be easily bent into the required shape.
  • Manufacturing: Aluminum pipes are used in manufacturing processes, such as the production of industrial equipment, due to their strength, durability, and ability to withstand extreme temperatures.

Overall, aluminum pipes are versatile, durable, and lightweight, making them an ideal choice for various industrial applications. Contact DS Pipe & Steel for your aluminum piping needs today!
