Tubes and Profiles
TUBE PRODUCTION LINES AND A VERSATILE MACHINERY EQUIPMENT CREATE ENDLESS MANUFACTURING OPTIONS When it comes to tubes, we can deliver the solution to just about any problem. That's because:
We produce our own, top-quality source material. We are able to manufacture versatile and precision products on our tube production lines. We have a comprehensive range of the latest machinery, which gives us almost limitless manufacturing options. In addition to producing the full range of standard cross sections and sizes, we are also able to manufacture tubes with unusual profiles, non-standard wall thicknesses, and thick zinc coatings. Versatility and flexibility are key characteristics of our production setup — and, of course, operating efficiency.
The new standard of sprinkler pipes WGalweld 5 and 7 pipes made of continuous galvanized hot rolled strip according to EN 10346 boast an exceptionally adhesive zinc coating and formability. Our pipes are the material of choice for severe requirements and heavy duties. Unique in terms of both, technology and economic efficiency, the production process creates high-spec steel tubes with an exceptional degree of corrosion protection. A thermally applied metallic inline-coating ensures that the inside weld and the smoothly planed outside weld are particularly resistant to corrosion.
This ensures considerably more safety, especially in closed, fluid-carrying pipe systems. Roll-grooved WGalweld pipes are light weight but high-strength designed and thus, very cost-effective, optimally replacing conventional, heavy threaded pipes.
WGalweld 5E and 7E are economically and ecologically sustainable models with different zinc layers on the outer and inner surface. WFlow 5 and WLight 7, the uncoated styles with pickled surface (especially designed for wet systems), complete our portfolio. Wuppermann´s innovative sprinkler pipes are tested and certified according to FM, UL and cUL.
Round and shape tubes for various applications Since September 2011 we are also offering black steel tubes and profiles to our customers. Our tube portfolio now includes not only galvanized, pickled and stainless steel tubes, but also tube and tube components from non-finished structural steel. Our black steel tubes, for example, are used in the manufacture of scaffolding, truck and car trailers, as well as in lightweight steel structures.
Dimensions Round tube Ø 18.0 - 88.9 mm Square tube 20 x 20 - 60 x 60 mm Rectangular tube 30 x 18 - 80 x 40 mm Flat sided oval tube 50 x 30 mm Tube lengths 3,000 - 12,000 mm Wall thickness 1.25 - 4.00 mm Cut lengths of 300 to 3,000 mm (tolerances +/- 0.5 mm)
Highest standard of corrosion protection The Wuppermann-Group
For more than 145 years now, the name Wuppermann has stood for for quality in the highly qualified processing and finishing of steel. Since its foundation in 1872, the medium-sized family business has steadily advanced to become what it is today: the innovation leader in corrosion protection. The Wuppermann range extends from flat products to tubes and tube components made of steel.
The Wuppermann Group in its present structure was formed in 1985 from the companies remaining in the family's possession following the sale of the rolling mill in Leverkusen. It is controlled by the holding company Wuppermann AG, based in Leverkusen, which is fully owned by the family. The group has five production sites, with a total workforce of more than 800 employees. In 2018, it posted revenue of round about € 671 million.
