Aluminium Pipe

aluminium-pipeEckhardt Steel & Alloys  stocks both drawn and extruded aluminum pipe.  Our extruded aluminum pipe is stocked in both seamless and structural (port-hole die).  Whether you have a pressure or structural application, our product line can cover your needs.  Light weight, excellent corrosion resistance, and the ability to transmit heat rapidly are only a few of the benefits of aluminum pipes.

Eckhardt Steel & Alloys stocks 6061, 6063, 5083, and 5086 alloys in extruded aluminum piping in the tempers of T6, T6511, O, H32, and T52.   We also carry a drawn aluminum pipe product in 6061 alloy with a T6 temper.Due to the diversity of its properties, extruded aluminum tube is used in a variety of industries/markets.

Aluminium Pipe Industrial Applications:
  • Transportation industry
  • Marine industry
  • Solar and renewable Energy
  • Building and construction (both commercial and residential)
  • Military and Defense
  • Electrical bus conductors
  • Compressed gas storage
Aluminium Pipe Alloy Designations:

The aluminum industry has created a system using a four-digit numerical designation to identify wrought aluminum alloys.  The first digit indicates the major alloying element.  The second digit indicates whether there was a modification in the basic alloy.  The third and fourth digit indicates the specific alloy.   The following represent the various groups:

1XXX Aluminum 99% or greater
2XXX Copper – major alloying element
3XXX Manganese – major alloying element
5XXX Magnesium – major alloying element
6XXX Magnesium and silicon – major alloying elements
7XXX Zinc -major alloying element
