EN 10305 seamless precision steel tube
EN10305-1, E235+N Seamless tube

EN 10305 is for seamless precision steel tube applications.

Applicastion for power steering

EN 10305 european standard specifies the technical delivery conditions for seamless cold drawn steel pipe of circular cross section used in hyhydraulic and pneumatic power systems.

Standard and Steel grade:

The allowed pressure rates and temperatures are the responsibility of the customer in accordance with the state of the art and in application of the safety coefficients specified in the application regulations, codes or standards.

Tubes according to this EN 10305 European standard are characterised by having precisely defined tolerances on dimensions and a specified surface roughness.

EN 10305 seamless precision steel tube shall be manufactured from hot finished seamless tubes by cold drawning. Other suitable methods of cold working are permitted. The tubes shall be delivered in the delivery condition +N which means that after the final cold drawing operation the tubes are normalized in a controlled atmosphere.

NBK means protective heat-treating under the non-oxidation enviroment to get a bright and smooth surface for the tubes.

EN 10305-4 Tubes for hydraulic and pneumatic power systems

The pipes are used to manufacture hydraulic and pneumatic power systems of the I generation and they are also used in the pipelines of hydraulic and pneumatic systems. They are manufactured as seamless cold drawn tubes. They are provided in the +N delivery condition (normalized in a controlled atmosphere).

Quality grade of EN 10305-1

The tubes are supplied in the following quality grades :

  1. precision steel tubes intended primarily for mechanical stressing, without any particular quality requirement and without acceptance test certificate.
  2. precision steel tubes intended primarily for mechanical stressing, with special quirement and exclusively with acceptance test certificate.
  3. precision steel tubes with special requirement according to section 12. Theses requirements and corresponding tests must be agreed, with the customer having to specify his requirements at the time of enquiry and on ordering.

Seamless pipe Specification, standard and identification

Seamless pipes are extensively applied for the nuclear device, gas, petrochemical, ship building and boiler industries. Seamless pipes dominates 65% of market share in Chinese boiler industry.
