Types of Industrial Pipes

- Jul 27, 2017-

Industrial pipe and fittings differs in all shapes, sizes and material.


To improve the strength and durability, these have been mixed with other sustances to meet specific use. For high heat resistance nature, it can be generally used in projects that involve combustible gases.

Because of its high heat resistance, it is typically used in projects that involve flammable gases. Here is brief introduction of different pipes and fittings,


Types of Industrial Steel Pipe:

Line Pipe: These hollow tubes are used for long distance piping projects. Steel line pipes tend to have a higher resistance to corrosion and are used for the transportation of oils and gases.


Seamless & Welded Pipe: Standard seamless pipes are more commonly used than welded pipes and they tend to be more pressure resistant. Because of their lighter weight and thin walls, they are used in liquid transportation. Welded pipes are not typically used in high-pressure projects and are heavier than seamless pipes. They transport gas more often than liquid.


Types of Steel Used for Pipe Fittings:

Galvanized Steel: This is typically used for all piping projects within a building. It is designed to carry liquid, including water, but not for gas supply lines. Galvanized steel is basically coated with zinc that works to protect it from rusting.


Carbon Steel: This is a strong and durable variety of steel. Depending on the amount of carbon in the steel will ultimately dictate the strength and durability. These fittings can be used in projects that involve liquids and oils as well as gas. These fittings are used in residential, commercial, shipbuilding and other construction areas. Some of the different types of fittings include:
