Tidyco has a wealth of customers in the UK rail industry that require specific stainless steel tube assemblies for various applications.

Applications include carrying waste, compressed air and hydraulic fluid.

Tidyco offer stainless steel tube and pipe bending up to a diameter of 62mm in a range of materials to satisfy the customer’s specification. Using CNC bending machines, Tidyco ensures the highest possible levels of dimensional accuracy, repeatability and quality at all times, allowing us to meet the tightest of standard.

Working closely with the rail industry Tidyco has developed and produces stainless steel effluent pipework for rail vehicles, these manipulated pipes are fitted with trace heating elements to prevent the pipe from freezing. The pipes are clad in insulation and mounted to the train underside with specially developed clamps and fixings.

In addition to tube manipulation Tidyco has the capability to weld a range of materials such as steel, stainless steel etc. and has specialised in the TIG welding stainless steel tube and pipe.

Tidyco has the capability to add a wide range tube features, such as flaring, beading, weld nuts, weld fittings, compression fittings, surface finishes, etc. Tidyco’s parts kitting service can be used to kit together all the associated items required by the customer such as rigid tube assemblies, hose assemblies, fittings, clamps, preformed silicon hoses, etc. The kit is then assembled by Tidyco and despatched to the customer.

Tidyco’s extensive involvement in the rail industry has lead to the development of specialised manufacturing of brazed copper pipe assemblies. These assemblies are manufactured from various diameter copper tubes and brazed with various fittings to form complex assemblies predominantly for the rail market. The completed assemblies can be painted in a range of colours.

With our state of the art scanning device, we can recreate obsolete components or items, which do not have a STP file.
