The agriculture industry heavily relies on precision tubes for various purposes. Due to its durability and ability to withstand pressure, steel tubes are used in water wells and other irrigation systems. Meta Engitech tubes are used in field drainage systems and vent pipe systems.
These tubes with a corrosion-resistant surface treatment, and are generally used as agricultural materials as field posts and aggregates for agricultural facilities.
Generally, three types of outer diameters of 19.1 mm (0.752 in), 22.2 mm (0.874 in), and 25.4 mm (1 in) are widely used, and in some regions, even thicker steel tubes are used for snow protection and fruit tree cultivation. In recent years, high-tensile strength materials have been used, and products with thinner walls and higher performance than conventional products are also on the market.
Equipment and Machinery :
One of the primary ways that steel supports the agriculture industry is through the manufacturing of equipment and machinery. This includes things like tractors, harvesters, plows, and combines, all of which are integral pieces of machinery for farms.
Given the lightweight yet durable nature of steel, this type of equipment can withstand a good amount of wear and tear but are still practical for frequent use. Thus, steel equipment and machinery are ideal for withstanding the demanding conditions of farm operations.
All agricultural operations require some sort of fences or enclosures to help define property boundaries, secure livestock, and protect crops from external factors. Since steel fences are extremely durable, they can withstand the rigor of agriculture and remain functional for years.
Plus, many farm owners love the fact that steel fences can easily be customized to fit their unique needs, while still being resistant to pests, mold, mildew, termites, and more. These are common issues they’ll face from other building materials, making steel the better choice that makes their maintenance and upkeep needs manageable.
Building and Structures :
On farms, steel buildings and structures are a great choice that have the strength and stability to withstand harsh environments. However, steel buildings are also very low-maintenance, which makes them convenient for busy farmers–especially when compared to other building materials like wood.
Some examples of such buildings and structures include barns, silos, storage sheds, and processing facilities. In each of these cases, the steelworks to protect crops, livestock, and equipment effectively to provide farm owners with peace of mind.
