Metal Tubes : Sanoh UK Manufacturing


Metal Tubes

Metal tube ends in both steel and aluminium undergo a flaring process in which they are formed into a double flare, an ISO flare, or other shape for high-pressure use. According to the specifications of each vehicle and application, the tubes are then bent to become finished products. 

Sanoh bending technologies and processes can be applied to many different metals.

Steel brake tubes are used to transmit hydraulic pressure generated by the master cylinder to the brake units in the wheels. Due to the high operating pressure of braking systems, brake tubes utilize brazed steel tubing due to the excellent pressure resistance of the material.


Aluminium tubes are widely used to carry cooling liquids in air conditioning units and PHEV vehicles as well as other cooling applications.
