How do we convert your tubes to Tube-Lock® tubes?
1. Pick up your tubes (new or used, steel or aluminium)
We will arrange transportation for you. Tell us when and where you would like us to pick up your tubes and we will take them to our factory to start the conversion process.
We can convert both new and used tubes, steel as well as aluminium to Tube-Lock® tubes as long as they have a wall thickness of 3,2mm or 4mm and conform to the EN39.
2. Visiual check of incoming tubes
To make sure the tubes are of sufficient quality and not damaged beyond repair, we execute a visual inspection. This is to ensure the quality of the end product, consisting of your tube with the Tube-Lock® ends, meets our high quality standards.
3. Cleaning of your tubes
In order to be able to process all your tubes, we will remove any dirt inside and out such as sand or cement from them.
4. Straightening (when applicable) of your tubes
If your steel tubes are slightly bended, we are able to straighten them so we can convert them. This means you can even send us your slightly bended tubes and we will be able to make Tube-Lock® tubes out of them.
5. Cutting your tubes to the right length
We will make sure your tubes are all of the same length(s). You can choose your own lenght(s) as long as they are between 4ft (1.2 meters) and 13ft. (4 meters). Please indicate the exact length required including the ends. A tolerance will apply.
6. Pressing Tube-Lock® into the tube ends
Our factory is equipped with the most modern machinery to be able to fix the Tube-Lock ends into your tubes. Do you want know how this is done and to take a look in our factory? You can find a video here!
7. Bundling or packing in tube containers
To be able to return the tubes to your yard, we can bundle them with steel bands, or we can transport them in THIEL tube containers. The containers are used per set of 2 containers and can hold up to 58 tubes per 2 containers.
8. Returning your Tube-Lock® to your yard
Once again, we will arrange transportation back to your yard. You only have to tell us when and where, and we will do the rest!
For a limited time only, we offer free transportation from and to your yard in the UK. This means we will take care of the logistics for you, and you only have to pay for the Tube-Lock® ends.
The offer is valid from the 1st of September 2020 until the 31st of December 2020. This offer applies to full truck loads only.
