Straight tubes provided by Hailiang include copper tubes, brass tubes, and copper/nickel tubes.
Copper tubes with a copper content of more than 99% feature an excellent ductility and are available in numerous shapes, based on a simple processing technique. Our copper tubes are known for their outstanding thermal conductivity and long service life. They are easy to process and weld in order to meet specific customer needs, and are extremely high quality. It is for that reason these tubes are used in refrigeration, plumbing and mechanical industries. As a primary example to an everyday user, take a copper plumbing pipe used in a household water system: the pipe is resistant to bacterial growth, ensuring the drinking water you receive out of your faucet is clean and safe. For those who are more environmentally conscious, copper tubes can last for nearly 100 years, and are 100% recyclable and reusable.
Brass tubes on the other hand are primarily made of copper and zinc. Other elements are added to special brass types in order to provide different properties to the tube, based on unique application needs. Our brass tubes are known for their outstanding corrosion resistance and bright finish. As it is stronger than copper, and usually features a bright finish, these pipes are widely used in bathrooms for decorative plumbing, sweater desalination, refrigeration and automobile manufacturing. Brass fixtures used in bathrooms generally have aluminum or tin added as an added resistance to corrosion and bacterial growth.
As the name implies, copper/nickel tube are comprised of copper and nickel, and feature an extremely high corrosion resistance. These pipes are primarily used in ship building, seawater desalination and chemical industries.
