Tungum - A Company Profile
Tungum Ltd has over 75 years’ experience in the supply of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. In addition to our unique Tungum Alloy Tubing we source and supply a comprehensive range of Tube Products.
There are two main areas to the Tungum Ltd business: our unique Tungum Tubing sold extensively into worldwide markets for Oil & Gas, Defence, Transportation and Medical; and Tube Products where we source a wide range of support products for both hydraulic and pneumatic applications.
Sometimes we are asked to provide a complete installation package with our client’s pipework systems. Other times, we are simply asked to source equipment to complement an existing installation. Whatever your sourcing need we are here to help.
A key part of our Tube Products offer is distributing the CPV Valves range. They are high pressure valves and fittings that meet the highest industry standards. Their products are used worldwide in Oil & Gas, Marine, Chemical, Pulp & Paper, Food & Pharmaceuticals and Manufacturing Plants. Today CPV is known around the world for the O-SEAL System of high-pressure valves and fittings, the Mark VIII system of tube size valves and fittings and FloMaster™ air operated shutoff valves. The new G-Series of stainless steel shutoff, needle & check valves will join that list as they feature the same ease of fitting, quality control and trouble free service. As CPV’s agent for the UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg we are able to offer their complete range of valves and fittings as well as shipping them Worldwide.
Tungum has an excellent strength to weight ratio, good fatigue properties and exceptional corrosion resistance. Tungum is made to last a lifetime, giving many add-on benefits, such as removing a number of costly refits and material disposal.
Tungum Alloy (Aluminium-Nickel-Silicon-brass)combines:
• an unusually high strength to weight ratio
• good ductility
• excellent corrosion resistance
• first class fatigue properties
When used in high pressure hydraulic or pneumatic circuits, these features together with inherent “clean bore” characteristics combine in affording an easily constructed, high integrity system. This requires a minimum of purging and no external protective treatment. Highly resistant to sea water and its atmosphere, Tungum resists both stress and crevice corrosion to offer outstanding serviceability, even at intermittent duty in the highly corrosive ‘splash’ zone.
