In addition, cold drawn welded pipes have significant advantages over cold drawn seamless pipes in terms of initial cost and reduced machine tool processing costs.
What is DOM tube?
DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) refers to a production process.
To produce specialty tubing, this procedure uses a drawbench to pull tubing through a die and over a mandrel, allowing excellent control of the inside diameter and wall thickness.
Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) Round Mechanical Tubing is a cold drawn 1020/1026 electric resistance welded tube with all the flash removed prior to cold drawing. In comparison to other tubing, DOM round steel tubing is produced to more exact OD and ID tolerances, and has the highest weld strength possible.
The DOM tube is a precision steel tube made of ERW steel pipe as raw material and processed by cold drawing.
Tips: In case ASTM A53 Grade B in ERW (electric resistance welded) pipe, the weld seam shall be done the heat treatment with a minimum 1000°F [540°C]. In this way the no untempered martensite remains.
In case ASTM A53 B pipe in cold expanded, then expansion should not exceed 1.5% of the required OD.
