19.05 x 2mm mild steel round ERW tube is used in many structural and engineering applications. The size refers to the outside diameter and then the thickness of the wall.
ERW means Electric Resistance Welded. ERW tube is made when steel strip is welded to form a tube shape. The tube is continuously seam welded which means that there is a neat weld running along the inside of the tube.
Mild steel round tube is widely used in a variety of applications and also comes in both square and rectangular options.
Speciality Metals offers an excellent solution for your various construction needs with their 19.05mm x 2mm Mild Steel Round Tube ERW Tube in various lengths. This ERW tube is known for its durability, versatility, cost-effectiveness and recyclability, making it a great option for projects looking for a reliable material. Additionally, this tube has impressive welding, forming, bending and machining abilities, making it easier for you to handle and modify according to your needs.

Mild steel is a quality strong metal. However it is not rust proof and may do so over time. Please use galvanised or stainless steel if you need resistance to rust. If this metal tube does show signs of rust then simply remove this with WD40 or fine sanding.
The grade of plain steel that we have available has mechanical properties that provide excellent machinability, formability and weldability.
Mild steel can be welded and it’s also suitable for painting. Mild steel is a magnetic grade of metal. Magnets will stick to this sheet but it is not itself a magnet.
The weight of a mild steel ERW (Electric Resistance Welded) tube pipe can be determined by its dimensions: diameter, wall thickness and length. To calculate the weight, you can use the following formula:
Weight (kg) = Length (m) × π × Diameter (m) × Wall Thickness (m) × Density of Steel (kg/m3)
The average density of mild steel is approximately 7,850kg/m3 or 7.85g/cm3.
However, for a quick reference, manufacturers and steel suppliers often provide weight charts based on standard sizes of tubes and pipes.
For a more specific calculation:
Weight = 6 × π × 0.05 × 0.005 × 7,850
Weight ≈ 4.41kg
The tube would weigh approximately 4.41 kg.
However, always refer to manufacturer-provided weight tables or use accurate measurement tools for precise weight determination, especially if it’s critical for a project’s logistics and planning.
Bending mild steel ERW (Electric Resistance Welded) tube pipes without special equipment can be challenging, especially if you’re aiming for precision and consistency. The strength and rigidity of steel make it resistant to bending without the application of substantial force. While it’s possible to induce a curve in a tube by manual means, there are several concerns to keep in mind.
When bending steel tubing manually, there’s a risk of the tube collapsing, wrinkling or kinking at the bend, especially if it doesn’t have a thick wall. Achieving a smooth, even bend without the proper equipment is difficult. Additionally, the welded seam on ERW tubes can be a potential weak point, and uneven stress during bending might compromise the integrity of the seam.
Specialised tube-bending equipment is designed to support the tube during the bending process, ensuring that the shape is maintained without deformation or damage. These tools often use mandrels or other internal supports to prevent the tube from collapsing during bending.
If you must bend ERW tube pipes without specialised tools, consider filling the tube with sand or another material that will provide internal support and prevent it from kinking. After securely capping both ends, you can then attempt to bend the tube around a form or template. This method is less precise than using dedicated equipment, and the results might not be as consistent, but it can provide a basic bend for non-critical applications.
In summary, while it’s possible to bend ERW tubes without special equipment, the results are generally less precise, and there’s a higher risk of damaging the tube. For professional or critical applications, it’s recommended to use appropriate tube-bending tools or services.
Choosing the right ERW (Electric Resistance Welded) pipe for your project requires a careful evaluation of several key factors to ensure durability, safety and optimal performance. Start by understanding the specific requirements of your project, including the load-bearing capacity, environmental conditions and any potential chemical exposures.
The diameter and wall thickness of the ERW pipe are essential criteria. These dimensions determine the pipe’s flow capacity and its strength. For projects demanding high strength, select a pipe with an appropriate wall thickness. Similarly, consider the pipe’s diameter to ensure adequate flow rates for applications involving fluid or gas transportation.
Material grade is another critical factor. Mild steel comes in different grades, each with distinct properties regarding tensile strength, yield strength and elasticity. Choose a grade that matches the mechanical and chemical stresses the pipe will encounter. For instance, if you expect corrosive environments or materials, you may need pipes with specific coatings or treatments for enhanced corrosion resistance.
Furthermore, inspect the quality of the welding seam. As the ERW process involves welding, ensuring a uniform, defect-free seam is vital for the pipe’s overall strength and durability. Opt for pipes from reputable manufacturers that adhere to industry standards and conduct rigorous quality checks.
Lastly, consider the pipe’s finish and any post-production treatments, such as galvanising, which can enhance corrosion resistance. For above-ground or visible installations, aesthetics might also play a role, so consider the pipe’s surface finish.
In conclusion, selecting the right ERW pipe involves a comprehensive understanding of your project’s demands and a thorough evaluation of the pipe’s dimensions, material grade, welding quality and treatments. Always consult with experts or engineers, especially for critical or large-scale projects, to ensure you make an informed choice.
