Driveline Tubing

Driveline tubing is used in pipelines, oil wells, and other industrial applications. It is primarily used for dissolving oil or gas. There are holes drilled through a hard, conical mesh that allows liquid to flow through it. 

To ensure an even flow of oil and fluid being pumped, these items are usually used in conjunction with injection pressure losses. The high-pressure (HPP) steel used in pipelines allows oil or gas to flow more freely through them. 

Extruded polyethylene (PEX) pipes are commonly used to manufacture gas and oil pipelines. Fuel lines typically use these pipes, but they can also be used anywhere high pressure is required. In the refinement of crude oil, peptone packing is also used as an additive.

Driveline tubing is necessary for high-pressure and high-temperature applications. Driveline tubing is corrosion-resistant due to its aluminum and titanium alloy. Fuel lines, industrial pipes, and pipelines can all be served by this tubing.  

There are a variety of applications for driveline tubing. Different colors are available for steel and aluminum tubing. Automobile manufacturers use the tubing. In the trucking industry, it is used for all kinds of transportation. The production industries depend more on this type of tubing, as is also well known. 

Driveline tubing is a common material in the construction industry. High-pressure, low-pressure, and vacuum applications require rubber. This type of tubing is commonly used in plastic manufacturing. Side-cut tube end fittings are designed for use under low pressures and vacuums. 

When the fitting is screwed into the pipe or tube, the threads of the fitting slip into another threaded hole. A carburetor valve or a fuel pump valve can be used to open and close the end fitting. Two different sizes of side-cut tubing fittings are available in these fittings, one with a larger thread and one with a smaller thread. 

In addition, there are side-cut fittings with a variety of sizes, some of which can be used in more than one application. Tube end fittings are often used in the automotive industry to meet pressure and vacuum requirements. Additionally, they facilitate the connection of high-pressure and low-pressure fuel lines from vehicles.

Inspect the driveline as follows

  1. It is important to check the axial tightness of the axle and transmission end yokes. For the correct specifications, please refer to the axle or transmission service information. 
  2. If the driveshaft is loose, disconnect it. It is important to tighten the retaining nut on the end yoke to the proper torque specification. In the axle or transmission service information, you can find the correct specifications. 
  3. Ensure that the cross assemblies are not worn out. A vertical force of about 50 pounds should be applied. On the driveline, near the cross assemblies. If the cross assembly moves more than 0.006 inches (0.152 mm), it needs to be replaced. 
  4. Using a dial indicator, check the slip yoke spline for excessive radial movement. A slip yoke and tube shaft should not be looser than 0.007 inches (0.178 mm). When propshafts and slip yokes are excessively loose, they should be replaced. 
  5. Make sure the shaft tubing is not damaged or bent. Mud, road contamination, and other foreign materials should be removed from the shaft.

Driveline Installation

  1. Install the four capscrews that attach the slip yoke to the end yoke and support the driveline. 
  2. To seat the bearing cups into the weld yoke and slip yoke, lightly tap them with a brass or copper hammer. 
  3. Install the capscrews 
  4. Hand-tighten the capscrews to the yoke pilot. 
  5. With a torque wrench, alternately tighten the capscrews according to the specifications. 
  6. Install the four capscrews that attach the cross assembly to the end yoke, and support the weld yoke end of the driveline.
  7. Seat the bearing cups into the weld yoke and slip yoke by lightly tapping them with a brass or copper hammer.
  8. Install the capscrews
