Machinability Has A New Name: SureThread

on February 26, 2014

Wheatland Tube is excited to announce the new brand name of its continuous weld (CW) pipe to SureThread. This name speaks to the excellent threading and fabrication characteristics of CW pipe. Many of our customers tell us that our CW pipe “threads like butter” and doesn’t have all of those hard spots like imported ERW pipe,” so SureThread just made sense. Wheatland Tube is North America’s only full-line producer of A53 SureThread (CW) and Electric Resistance Weld (ERW) standard steel pipe.

Wheatland Tube’s SureThread pipe’s uniform grain pattern and smooth surface cause less wear and tear on tools and dies than ERW pipe. In a recent survey of contractors, 72% of respondents indicated they believe our SureThread continuous weld pipe to be easier on their tools. A new engineering study confirms their belief as fact: Threading tools use 22% less wattage while threading continuous weld pipe (compared to ERW pipe)pipe

Not all pipe is the same, and it’s important that when you specify SureThread pipe, by Wheatland, you can rest assure that you’re getting better efficiency, better durability and better results.

  • Bending, cutting and threading made easier
