ASTM Standard for Pipes, Fittings and Flanges
ASTM standards define the specific manufacturing process of the material and determine the exact chemical composition of pipes, fittings and flanges, through percentages of the permitted quantities of carbon, magnesium, nickel, etc., and are indicated by “Grade”. For example, a carbon steel pipe can be identified with Grade A or B, a stainless-steel pipe with […]
Types, Lengths and Ends of Pipes
Pipe manufacturing refers to how the individual pieces of pipe are made in a pipe mill; it does not refer to how the pieces are connected in the field to form a continuous pipeline. Each piece of pipe produced by a pipe mill is called a joint or a length (regardless of its measured length). […]
What is the difference between Pipe and Tube?
People use the words pipe and tube interchangeably, and they think that both are the same. However, there are significant differences between pipe and tube. The short answer is: A PIPE is a round tubular to distribute fluids and gases, designated by a nominal pipe size (NPS or DN) that represents a rough indication of […]
Seamless Stainless steel Pipe Carbonsteel Low-alloy Steel Cutting Plan
CUTTING PLAN The Pipe cutting plan shall be prepared for individual AFC piping isometric drawings by the piping engineer. Wherever field-welded joints are shown in the piping isometric drawings, a minimum of 200 mm extra length needs to be considered while making the cutting plan. Cutting and beveling of pipes may be done by flame […]
Difference between 304 and 316 stainless steel
304 Stainless Steel and 316 Stainless Steel are often compared since they cannot be distinguished by their looks but by their properties. In addition, they both are widely used in everyday life tools. However, they do have distinct differences that need to be considered before choosing one another. The 304 stainless steel SAE 304 stainless […]
What is Steel Forging?
Manufactured by a series of compression under an extremely high pressure, steel forgings normally have less surface porosity, finer grain structure, higher tensile strength, better fatigue life/strength, and greater ductility than any other steel processing. Understand the meaning of Forged Steel The forging process began in the ancient times to produce various kinds of end […]
Corrosion Under Insulation – Insights from SGS
CUI, corrosion under insulation, does not have to be a perennial issue. Preventing moisture ingress may be, but CUI happens over time and with the right strategies moisture can be detected before it initiates CUI. What is CUI? How to properly manage an insulation system? What benefits can I get? There is no doubt […]
Tubes vs. Pipes – What are the main differences?
Understand the 12 significant differences between steel tube and steel pipe in detail from the industry experts. Resolve the tube vs. pipe confusion. Ever wondered what to call a cylindrical section? A pipe or is it a tube? Confusing, isn’t it? Both the tools appear to be working on the same hollow cylindrical concept. Regardless […]
Difference Between Hot-rolled and Cold-rolled Seamless Stainless Steel Pipe
Seamless stainless steel pipes are commonly used in our life. The application of seamless steel pipe is inseparable from the petroleum and chemical industries. Differences 1. Processing point of view From the processing point of view, hot rolling is hot processing, cold drawing is cold processing. Hot rolling is rolling at a temperature above the […]
