Hydraulic and Automation Warehouse (HAW), a Hytec Group Company, has added a new range of seamless steel tubing to its already extensive stock – chrome 6 free (CR-6 free) hydraulic line tubing from Salzgitter Mannesmann. This tubing is ideal for all high pressure hydraulic applications.
“The CR-6 free steel tubing complements our existing range of steel tubing as it offers a superior corrosion protection and is environmentally friendly,” states Werner Joubert, Branch Manager, HAW Johannesburg.
Salzgitter Mannesmann’s high-performance passivating process provides CR-6 free coating with substantially improved resistance to white rust. No painting of the tubing is required and no changes to assembly procedures are required.
CR-6 free hydraulic line tubing can be installed faster as it does not require preheating prior to welding. In addition, the tubing can be bent or shaped without flaking of the plated surface.
The CR-6 free range is available in sizes ranging from 6 mm to 42 mm and in lengths of six metres.
HAW has distributed various hydraulic components for both the South African and African markets for the last 20 years. This is also in line with HAW’s strategy to continuously expand its product offering to satisfy market demand.
