Varied Industry Usage of Steel Pipes

Posted by: Time:2014.05.19 00:33

Chemical industry prefers steel pipes as there is no better material for transportation of chemicals. Steel won react with the chemicals which makes it fit for the application. In construction industry, steel pipes are used for scaffolding. Steel pipes are the kind of products that can be used in several ways in a way or other.


Industrial pipes are a wide category that covers pipes of different specs according to the specific requirements of the procurer. When sourcing industrial pipes, it is for the procurer to see the wall thickness, metric size and pipe schedule. American National Standards Institute requirements for classification place importance on pipe schedule when calculating wall thickness interpretations. You may also take into account cross-sectional shape such as circular, rectangular, square or oval.


In oil industry, steel pipes are used for transferring gas as well as manufacturing of LPG and other non-toxic gases. You will see pipes emanating from refineries and then making a cross-country network.


In construction industry, the pipes are used for scaffolding. Chemical industry prefers steel pipes as these are suitable for transporting chemicals. You need a material that does not react with chemicals and nothing is better than steel for that. Automotive industry relies on the flow of air and water in the system, which again brings steel pipes into the picture.


In fact, pipes are products that will find usage in a plethora of industries in some or the other way. Right from water distribution to refrigeration, these pipes come into use. Ask an industry expert and they may talk in length about the use of steel pipes in a particular industry.


Galvanized pipes of leading manufacturers are produced using quality raw material and customized as per the instructions of the clients. These pipes are available in varied specifications such as steel grades, dimensions, diameters and thickness.

Type 304 stainless steel is preferred for tubing and piping applications as it is highly resistant of chemicals and corrosion. However, in the applications where temperatures fall between 800 and 1640 degrees Fahrenheit, type 304 stainless steel is not compatible, the reason being it is prone to carbide precipitation. Stainless steel type 304L tides over this problem as it has lower carbon content limit and it can work well in welding and higher temperature applications. Some other types of stainless steel possess additives like nickel or molybdenum that strengthen the steel鈥檚 ability to deliver in certain applications.


Ferritic types of steel are produced to be either heat-treated or annealed. Austenitic stainless steels have even higher amount of chromium and nickel offering even more resistance.


Stainless steel pressure pipe is manufactured using either solid chromium or a chromium and nickel combination. These kind of pipes include seamless and welded pipe, large diameter welded pipe for corrosive or high-temperature applications and electric fusion welded pipe for high-pressure applications and seamless.


Most procurers will prefer a qualitative range of pipes at industry leading prices. They may choose from products of various shapes such as round pipe, square pipe, seamless pipe and E R W pipe as per their individual requirements. A top supplier will interact with the clients, discuss in detail their requirements and advise which of their products will be the best fit.

Whether you require a galvanized pipe, pressure pipe or any kind of product, a reputable supplier would be able to deliver. For assurance of quality, it is important that you zero in on a supplier that you can trust to deliver. Bestar Steel Co.,Ltd, for instance, is a supplier that has made a mark for itself across industry verticals.
