Steel tubing can be welded or seamless. Seamless tubes are made by passing the molten steel over a piercing rod to create a hollow tube. Welded tubes are made from curling a rolling plate and welding the seam together. In the past, seamless tubes were stronger than welded tubes. However advances in technology have allowed welded tubes to have sufficient strength to replace welded tubes for many applications.

Steel tubes are widely used in industrial and domestic settings. In industry, steel tubes are valued for their strength and ability to withstand extremes of temperature, pressure and destructive elements. In domestic settings, steel tubes are used in appliances and gas pipes. If you look behind your refrigerator you’ll likely see some steel tubing.
