What Are the Properties of Steel Pipe?

The time of issue:2013-11-5 8:47:03       Author:

When it comes to properties of welded steel pipe, we can't help talking about its strength, installation, capacity and so forth. In general, in comparison with other steel pipes, welded steel pipe has higher strength, installation ease, high flow capacity, leak resistance, longer service life, better reliability, versatility. It is also much cheaper and more durable.

Strong strength
If you need steel pipe with the strong strength to resist internal pressure, you are advised to use welded steel pipe. The high strength of steel will contribute to lightweight pipe to make it easier to resist internal pressure. When the steel pipe is not pressurized, it also can resist external pressure actually. The minimum yield strength of most pipe-grade steel is 290 MPa, while higher strength steels are available. Steel pressure pipe requires no thrust blocks at special sections, like elbows, tees and so forth since joints can be welded.

Easy to Install
If the pipe is stiff enough to hold its shape to near circular when handling and installation of buried pipe. Generally, the elasticity modulus of steel is 207 GPa. The materials with lower moduli must have thicker walls to provide equivalent stiffness. Steel pipe lends itself to installation by microtunneling for its longitudinal strength and relatively smooth outer surface. For easy to install, it is necessary to increase ring stiffness actually.

Resist Leak
Different from other steel pipe, the welded joints are leak-proof. The joints are designed to be leak-proof and bottle-tight within recommended limits of pressure.

Higher Flow Capacity
The thin walls of steel pipe makes it possible for larger inside diameter and greater flow capacity. In welded steel pipe, the frictional resistance to flow is really low.

Longer Service Life
Thanks for the external corrosion and internal abrasion, the steel pipe has a longer lifespan. Proper coating can help prolong its lifespan since coating can protect the surface from rusting.

Cost Effective
When it comes to the cost of welded steel pipe, we should calculate the cost of pipe, embedment, transportation, installation, operation, maintenance, and so forth. All in all, it is a wise choice to choose welded steel pipe.
