Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled Steel is required when a flat, uniform and clean surface is needed for an application. Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled Steel first go through the process called Hot Rolling. Rolling is a forming process where metal materials are passed through a pair of rollers. Hot Rolling occurs when the metal is higher than its recrystallization temperature.
After the steel goes through hot rolling, it can now go through the HRP&O process. The pickling part of the process uses water and other inorganic solutions at the mill to remove the scale from the hot rolled sheet surface. After the scale is removed, an oil film is applied to the surface to guard against rust.
Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled Steel can be applied to burial vaults, automotive parts, agricultural equipment, strapping, tubing, rack systems and more.
Consolidated Metal can also apply slitting and edge conditioning to Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled Steel to form other products to use for more applications. This steel can be slit as narrow as .250 inches and as wide as 48 inches. This steel can now be used in fourslide/multislide parts, hose clamps, coupling, deep drawing parts, automotive parts and washers after going through the process of slitting.
Steel edge conditioning is a process that occurs to the steel slit coil after the slitting process. Steel edge conditioning is when the edge of the steel coil is rolled to a desired shape. This process makes edges safe for exposed applications, and can put a complete radius on the strip.
Hot Rolled Pickled and Oiled Steel can be applied to many applications. Consolidated Metal prides themselves in being the leader in the custom steel industry and creating products in demand. CMS is known for the manufacturing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals since 1982. They can perform custom-slitting, edging, toll-processing and forming of metals, and they offer HRP&O steel to clients all over the world.
