Every industry has its own development history, so what is the development of aluminum tubings like? Let us find out.

Application of aluminum tube
Compared with other metals, aluminum was discovered late. In 1808, Humphry Davy determined the existence of the metal base of aluminum and first named it aluminum. In 1825, Danish physicist and chemist Hans ChristianØrsted tried to extract aluminum. However, it was not until 1827 that anhydrous aluminum chloride was mixed with potassium to obtain simple aluminum.
However, due to the limited production of aluminum, the output of aluminum was very low, so the status of aluminum was very high at that time. It is said that at the dinner, only French Emperor Napoleon could use aluminum knives and forks, while others could only use silver tableware. A small piece of aluminum on display at the Paris International Exposition in 1855, with the words "clay silver" affixed on it, was placed next to the most precious jewelry. This is enough to see its preciousness.
In 1886, Charles Martin Hall of Ohio and Paul Héroult of France independently electrolyzed a mixture of bauxite and cryolite to produce metallic aluminum, which laid the foundation for the subsequent mass production of aluminum basis. Since then, the development of aluminum has undergone a complete change, which mainly reflects two changes: First, aluminum is produced on a large scale and is no longer regarded as a precious metal. Secondly, due to its wide application in industry and daily life, it gradually replaced steel, copper and other metals in a wider range of applications.
When talking about the development history of aluminum tubes, one has to mention the development of aluminum extrusion industry. Metal extrusion can be traced back to 1797. The founder of the British Alexander Dick Company first used this process to extrude lead metal pipes and then manufactured an extruder. In 1904, magnesium aluminum built the first aluminum extrusion plant in North America. After the 1930s, the extrusion process has made great progress, and it is possible to produce aluminum extrusion products of any form of cross-section to meet a variety of different uses. At this point, the aluminum extrusion process has become more and more mature, and it must be continuously derived To all walks of life.
Aluminum tube generally refers to a kind of non-ferrous metal tube. Refers to a metal tubular material that is made of pure aluminum or aluminum alloy through extrusion and processed into a hollow longitudinal length. It can be divided into ordinary aluminum tubes and precision aluminum tubes, with one or more closed through holes, uniform wall thickness and cross section, and delivered in a straight line or in a roll. It has many advantages such as corrosion resistance and light weight. It is widely used in automobiles, ships, aerospace, aviation, electrical appliances, agriculture, electromechanical, household appliances and other industries. It has been ubiquitous in our lives.
The development of aluminum tubes is still very attractive, and here we will simply take a look. If you want a more in-depth understanding or have this need, please contact us.
