Description of Molybdenum Tube/Pipe
Molybdenum is gray-metallic and has the third-highest melting point of any element next to tungsten and tantalum. It is found in various oxidation states in minerals but does not occur naturally as a free metal. Molybdenum allows readily to form hard and stable carbides. For this reason, Molybdenum is frequently used for making steel alloys, high strength alloys, and superalloys. Molybdenum compounds usually have a low solubility in water. Industrially, they are used in high-pressure and high-temperature applications such as pigments and catalysts.
Our Molybdenum tube (pipe) can be used at service temperatures up to 1,800 degrees.
SAM offers molybdenum tubes for producing quartz tubing and for quartz melting. Using its extrusion experience, SAM provides large-diameter molybdenum tubing ideal for quartz melting vessels, mandrels and orifice plates. SAM is a molybdenum product supplier that has vast experience in the manufacturing and processing of high-performance materials, including molybdenum and their alloys. These advanced materials play a key role in the glass industry's challenging applications in feeding, melting, homogenizing, and shaping of glass products.
In addition to the Moly tube, we also supply Molybdenum alloy tubes including TZM tubing and La2O3 doped Moly (Mo-La) tubing. TZM tubes and Mo-La tubes have high creep resistance, recrystallization temperature, and thermal stability.

Applications of Molybdenum Tube/Pipe
- Used in components of an electron tube, heaters of high-temperature furnaces, and thermocouple retainers.
- Used in solar industries.
Seamless molybdenum tube
For the molybdenum tubes with thicker wall thickness, I recommend a seamless molybdenum tube.
Welded molybdenum tube
For the molybdenum tubes with thin wall thickness, we recommend a welded molybdenum tube. The welded tubes were manufactured by the molybdenum sheet. The surface was good since they will be polished after welding.
