A SPECIALIST TUBE SUITED TO DECORATIVE, ORNAMENTAL APPLICATIONS

This highly attractive ornamental tubing is a striking choice for decorative architecture and infrastructure. When crafted from stainless steel (inox), the twisted oval tubing exudes contemporary sophistication – and if your chosen finish is a mirror polish then you can enjoy the play of light as it refracts from the tubing. We also form our twisted oval tubing from warmer coloured metals such as copper and its alloys (brass, bronze and cupronickel). In decorative applications, twisted oval tubing formed from these warmer metals lends itself well to restorative projects or decorative features in period properties or traditional settings.

CHOOSE THE TIGHTNESS OF TWIST

If you are seeking tighter twists in your twisted oval tube, it is possible for our engineers to create ‘continuous’ twists running thorough the length of your tube. Alternatively, if you are seeking a more subtle, ‘looser’ twist, this is also possible. When used for balustrades, sometimes clients choose to vary the twists and finishes of each spindle. Get in touch and our experienced engineers can talk you through the options available.

Metals and finishes

There are several finishes available for this decorative tubing option – from a super mirror polish to a contemporary satin finish. Should you choose tube made from stainless steel or aluminium, we can also arrange for your tubing to be anodised or PVD coated for either a subtle or dramatic effect.

Joiners available for easier fabrication

Twisted oval tubing uses the same joiners as Timeless Tube’s oval tube. Joiners enable you to seamlessly connect the tubing at corners and on straight lengths, removing the need for awkward cuts and welds during fabrication.

By welding in these high-quality cast joiners you can create an uncompromising, seamless form to your application (the joiners can also be dry joined, if welding is not an option). Speak to our team if you are interested in learning more about how our joiners can make fabrication and installation an easier, more effective process.

TWISTED OVAL TUBE HEAT EXCHANGERS AND OTHER INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS

When bundled together in a straight configuration, twisted oval tubes offer substantially improved heat exchange properties and reduced tube vibration. Several studies have proven that twisted oval tubes are more effective than smooth round tubes when used inside heat exchangers. The tube side heat transfer coefficient is higher, and the pressure drop is lower, making stainless steel twisted oval heat exchangers superior to rod baffle heat exchangers. Speak to our engineering team about using this tube in industrial heating applications.

Sizes

http://stainless%20steel%20tubes

The image above shows how dimensions are detailed (for example, 65mm x 27mm x 2mm).

Stainless steel and aluminium 5083 twisted oval tube profiles are sold in lengths of 5.8m (the manufacturing process reduces the standard 6m length by 0.2 metres).

Can’t see the tube sizes you need in the table? Contact us about custom-sized tubing; we may able to fabricate a new size to meet your project requirements. Or download our brochure, which contains sizing information for existing aluminium and brass tubing too, as well as all stainless steel sizes.

Tolerances

Upon request, we will be able to find out wall thickness tolerances from our metal suppliers. Typically the tolerance levels of wall thickness are extremely minimal and any small variations in thickness do not affect further fabrication or the end application. However, it is important to let us know if the tolerance is critical to the application before you place an order. For example, if the shaped tubing component needs to go inside another component, or if the tubing has to house a component, any variation in wall thickness could be critical.
