Marcegaglia dedicated range of carbon steel tubes for the refrigeration industry is carried out within the manufacturing units of Kluczbork, (Marcegaglia Poland), Garuva (Marcegaglia do Brasil), Funza (Marcegaglia Colombi) and Queretaro (Marcegaglia Mexico) plants. Versatility, economy and high corrosion resistance are the main features of Marcegaglia steel refrigeration tubes.
|diameter mm||nominal weight g/m||wall thickness mm|
|GRADE||EN 10305-3 E160 CR2 S3|
|ASPECT SURFACE||Non-coated condition is supplied with slight surface oil and protected ends in order to allow the storage of tubes in proper warehouses and for a reasonable period of time
Zinc coating with minimum thickness above 7 µ, equivalent to 50 g/m2, in order to ensure red rust corrosion resistance in salt spray equal to 48 hours, measured according to ISO 9227
|Guaranteed according to reference norm limits – DIN 8964|
|GUARANTEED MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS||Rm – Tensile strenght ≥ 300 MPa
R0.2 – Yield point ≥ 180 MPa
Percentage elongation at break L0=5,65 √S0 ≥ 25%
|Quality controls executed on each coil during manufacturing|
|EXPANDING TEST||The test length of tube that is expanded by an internal mandrel over a length of about 10÷12 mm reaching an increase of the outside diameter up to 20% over the nominal size, must not show any cracking on visual inspection.|
|BENDING TEST||A test length of tube is wound around a mandrel the diameter of which is six times the tube’s outside diameter, without developing any crack or leak.|
|FLATTENING TEST||After flattening, the longitudinal section of a test length of non fin-cut tube, measuring about 50÷60 mm by crushing tubes, must not show any split or crack of the welding area.
The flattening is done by crushing tubes between two parallel surfaces.
|AIR-UNDERWATER TEST||100% tested|
Examples of standard packaging for all Marcegaglia product range of refrigeration carbon steel tubes.
Any specific requests will be dealt accordingly to customer’s needs.
Each pallet and each coil is marked with an identification tag allowing the complete traceability of the product.
|DOMESTIC MARKET||Coils are supplied on wooden pallets (expendable) or on galvanised steel pallets (to be returned). They are laid with wraps parallel to the pallet surface, compactly wound.
Wraps are clamped and secured by suitable straps in three or four points. The maximum weight for each pallet is about 2500 kg.
Cold-rolled strip coils are protected with anti-oxidation oil.
||Cold-rolled strip compactly wound coils with anti-oxidation oil are supplied in V.C.I. bag.
Coils are laid with wraps parallel to the pallets surface, compactly wound.
Wraps are clamped by suitable straps in three points.
