Hot Rolled Seamless Tubing

Hot rolled seamless (HRS) tube (also known as HFS or Hot finished seamless) is a lower-cost product than CDS tube and is a good material for applications that do not require the close dimensional tolerances and quality of surface finish that CDS tube provides. If tight tolerances are required, machining is used to finish the product to exact specifications. Hot finished seamless tubing is easy to machine to meet any requirements. HRS is used for products that require a thicker wall and a high strength material.

Made from 1026 Steel
Meets ASTM A519 (Hot Finished)

Stocked Size Range

  • 3.000" to 26.000" O.D. with 0.438" to 4.000" Wall Thickness
  • Stocked in 17.000’ - 24.000’ random lengths (cut to length available)

Manufacturing Process:

Hot rolled mechanical tubing is produced by heating a solid billet or bloom and then rotary piercing, plug, or Assel mill rolling it, and then final processing through multiple pass size-reducing mills. Tolerances and finish are similar to other hot worked steel products. Range of sizes and grades are more restricted than cold finished by the nature of the process involved. This tubing is used where dimensional accuracy and surface finish are unimportant or secondary, or where desired tolerances, finish, and final mechanical properties are to be attained by machining and heat treatment. HRS tubing is manufactured to outside diameter (OD) and wall thickness (W) dimensions.

Benefits of Hot Rolled Seamless Tubing:

Cost-Effectiveness

  • HRS is a great alternative to bar with a hole being machined into it. Reduced machining time reduces overall part cost.

Versatility

  • HRS is an excellent candidate for most processing techniques and allows for many options due to its available sizes produced.

Machinability

  • HRS is easily machined, with a minimal stock allowance for clean-up. It has excellent machining characteristics and is mild carbon.

Wide Range of Sizes

  • HRS can be manufactured to a large range of OD and wall thickness dimensions due to it being rolled bar and pierced.

Machining – HRS Tubing:

Determining the proper tube size is essential when producing a machined part from seamless mechanical tubing. To calculate the tube size needed to machine a given part, several important points should be considered:

  • The finished machined part size—OD, ID, length and tolerances.
  • Have the raw material tolerances per ASTM A519 been factored?
  • The machining sequence, type of machining and processing.
  • Will the tubing be machined true to the OD or ID?
  • Will the OD or ID be machined?
  • Will heat treating be used, and at what point in the production process?
  • How will it be held or chucked?
