A513 Type 5 Carbon Steel Tube DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel Tubing) offers a uniform grain structure that gives it a strong, seamless and consistent structure. DOM tubing offers excellent weldability and workability. A513 is found in the automotive, construction and mechanical industries to create a variety of structures.
What's the difference between pipe and tube?
The way it’s measured and the applications it’s being used for.
Pipes are passageways. Tubes are structural.
A pipe is generally measured by inside diameter or ID.(IE: You could roll a 2" golf ball through a 2" NOM pipe.) Tube, on the other hand, is measured by Outside Diameter. (So your golf ball would have the same O.D. as the 2" tube.)
