Product Description

Seamless bus tube is a round, hollow material manufactured to a specific outside diameter (O.D.) and wall thickness. It is produced to meet specific end user requirements. Tubing is described by the actual outside diameter and wall thickness, i.e. 8” O.D. x 0.500” wall aluminum tubing.

Outdoor tubular bus is generally made of 6063-T6 alloy because of its excellent mechanical and electrical properties and is readily available. The 6061-T6 tubular conductor is used where very high strength and lower conductivity is required.
