Today, we will share something about the seamless steel pipe as following:
The usage of Seamless steel pipe
Seamless steel tubes have a hollow cross-section, which are used in large quantities for transporting fluids, such as the transportation for oil, natural gas, gas, water, and some solid materials. Compared with solid steel, round steel and steel pipe have a lighter weight with the same bending and torsion strength, which is more economical. They are widely used in the manufacture of structural and mechanical parts such as oil drill pipes, automobile transmission shafts, bicycles and construction, which can increase material utilization, simplify the manufacturing process, and save materials and working time, they have been widely used for manufacturing steel pipes.
The development of seamless steel pipe at home and abroad
The U.S. Department of Commerce announced that the preliminary decision to impose a countervailing duty ranging from 11.06% to 12.97% on seamless steel tubes imported from China on February 24, 2010. In a statement, the U.S. Department of Commerce stated that imports of seamless steel pipes from China increased by 131.52% from 2006 to 2008 In US, the amount increased to USD 382 million.
In October 2011, the U.S. Department of Commerce filed an anti-subsidy case request from U.S. Steel Corporation, V&M Star Corporation, TMK IPSCO Corporation, and the U.S. Steel Workers Federation. At that time, officials of the Ministry of Commerce of China had stated that it is blindly to accuse the dumping or subsidy of imported products from China, which is lack of factual basis, and the Chinese side opposed it firmly.
At the beginning of November 2011, the United States International Trade Commission made an initial ruling in this regard. The schedule shows that the US Department of Commerce will make a final ruling in May 2011, and the US International Trade Commission will make a final ruling in June.
Due to the financial crisis and economic recession, the United States has frequently used trade remedy measures since 2009.
