Molybdenum tubes can be use for operating temperatures up to 1800 degrees Celsius. Heeger Materials Incis a reliable supplier of seamless molybdenum tubes and welded molybdenum tubes at competitive prices. We also offer high quality molybdenum alloy tubes, including TZM and Mo-La tubes. Customization is available.
Heeger Materials Inc offers molybdenum tube for quartz tube production and quartz smelting. Thanks to its expertise in the field of extrusion, Heeger Materials Inc offers large diameter molybdenum tubes, ideal for quartz melting tanks, mandrels and perforated plates. Heeger Materials Inc is a supplier of molybdenum products with long experience in the manufacture and processing of high-performance materials, in particular molybdenum and its alloys. These advanced materials play an important role in the glass industry in the demanding tasks of feeding, melting, homogenizing and forming glass products. Our molybdenum tubes can be use at working temperatures up to 1800 degrees Celsius.
Molybdenum is a gray metal with the third highest melting point of all elements after tungsten and tantalum. It is find in various oxidation states in ores, but does not occur naturally as a free metal. Solid and stable carbides are easily form with molybdenum. For this reason, molybdenum is often use to make steel alloys, high-strength alloys and super alloys. Molybdenum compounds usually have a low solubility in water. In industry they are used in high-pressure and high-temperature systems, as pigments and catalysts.
In addition to molybdenum tubes, we also supply molybdenum alloy tubes, in particular TZM tubes and molybdenum tubes doped with La2O3 (Mo-La). TZM and Mo-La tubes have high creep resistance, high recrystallization temperature and thermal stability.
Technical specifications of molybdenum tubes
Inner diameter (ID) 125 mm
Wall thickness (WT): > 6 mm
Maximum length: 2700 mm
Outside diameter (OD): user selectable
Density: ≥10 g/cc
Sintered casing, no bonding required.
Smaller molybdenum tubes are also available.
Seamless molybdenum tubes
For molybdenum tubes with larger wall thicknesses, we recommend seamless molybdenum tubes.
Welded molybdenum tubes
For molybdenum tubes with smaller wall thicknesses, we recommend welded molybdenum tubes. Welded tubes are make of molybdenum sheet. The surface is good, as they are polish after welding.
Application of molybdenum tubes
Molybdenum tube / molybdenum tube can be:
Used in electronic lamp components, high temperature furnace heaters and thermocouple holders.
Used in solar industry.
Molybdenum Tube Packaging
Our molybdenum tubes and molybdenum alloy tubes are carefully handle to minimize damage during storage and transportation and to maintain the quality of our products in their original condition.
