A shortcut in production.
The UPCAST®-SGTube line supplies thin-walled copper tube with a grain structure enabling the cast tube to be directly worked down with tube drawing machines.
As the cast tube is already rather close to final product sizes, UPCAST®-SGTube allows you to bypass several sort costly steps required in current tube mills.
The choice of the cast tube size depends – among other things – on the size of the final tube product.
The main usage of UPCAST®-SGTube is in the casting of phosphor deoxidized (DHP) copper tube for the production of sanitary, industrial and air conditioning and refrigeration (ACR) tubing. The process is however not limited only to DHP copper but is suitable also for other copper grades/copper alloys.
