Carbon steel has an unbelievable strength, so carbon steel tubes can be made very thin. This means that carbon steel pipes can be manufactured with less material and still be able to transport large volumes. This shows that carbon steel is very cost-effective. In addition, carbon steel can be recycled, which meets the requirements of developing energy-efficient buildings and a sustainable and healthy economy. If your project is very environmentally conscious, carbon steel pipe is a good choice.
Because carbon steel pipe is easy to manufacture, some manufacturers can make it in a variety of thicknesses and sizes. And it is also easy to cut and bend to fit wherever it is needed. As a result, it is popular in many fields. In fact, there are many places in our life where carbon pipe is used. Next, Wanzhi Steel will take you to know what specific uses of high strength carbon steel pipe.
Applications of Carbon Steel Pipes
Carbon steel pipe has been developing rapidly in recent years with its superior performance, and the application range involves almost all structural fields. Carbon steel pipes can be often seen in housing construction, bridges, dams, offshore platform structures, and towers, etc. In addition, carbon steel round pipe is hollow and can be used to transport fluids, such as transporting oil, gas, water, etc. Compared with round steel and other solid steel, carbon steel pipe is strong in bending and torsion, light in weight, and widely used in the manufacture of structural parts and mechanical parts, such as drill rods, automobile transmissions, bicycle frames, and buildings using steel scaffolding. The use of steel pipe manufacturing ring parts, can improve material utilization, and simplify the manufacturing process, saving material and processing time.
As a shock-resistant and highly durable alloy, carbon steel can withstand impact. Pipes made of carbon steel are safe to use and still perform well when used in harsh environments. For this reason, carbon steel pipes are popular in some countries with many earthquakes. The durability and resistance of carbon steel piping to various environmental factors make it safe and reliable. In addition, carbon steel pipe does not need to be replaced as often as other pipes, such as plastic pipes. Carbon steel pipe has a long life span and is a good value for money to purchase.
Types of Carbon Steel Pipes
Carbon steel pipes are divided into two types: hot rolled and cold rolled (drawn) steel pipes.
Hot-rolled Carbon Steel Pipes
Hot-rolled carbon steel pipes are divided into general steel pipes, low and medium pressure boiler steel pipes, high pressure boiler steel pipes, alloy steel pipes, stainless steel pipes, petroleum cracking pipes, geological steel pipes and other steel pipes.
General Carbon Steel Pipe
It is made of low-alloy structural steel such as 16Mn, 5MnV, such as 10, 20, 30, 35, 45, etc., or alloy steel such as 40Cr, 30CrMnSi, 45Mn2, 40MnB, etc., which is hot rolled or cold rolled. Seamless pipes made of low carbon steel such as 10 and 20 are mainly used for fluid conveying pipes. 45, 40Cr and other medium carbon steel seamless pipes are used to make mechanical parts, such as the force parts of automobiles and tractors. Generally, carbon steel pipes are required to ensure strength and flattening tests. The hot rolled steel pipe is delivered in a hot rolled state or a heat treated state; the cold rolling is delivered in a heat treated state.
Cold-rolled Carbon Steel Pipe
Cold-rolled carbon steel pipe is divided into general steel pipe, low and medium pressure boiler steel pipe, high pressure boiler steel pipe, alloy steel pipe, stainless steel pipe, petroleum cracking pipe, other steel pipes, and also includes carbon thin-walled steel pipe, alloy thin-walled steel pipe, Rust thin-walled steel pipe, special-shaped steel pipe. The outer diameter of hot-rolled seamless pipe is generally larger than 32mm, the wall thickness is 2.5-75mm, the outer diameter of cold-rolled seamless steel pipe can be up to 6mm, the wall thickness can be up to 0.25mm, the outer diameter of thin-walled pipe can be 5mm, and the wall thickness is less than 0.25mm. Cold rolling is more accurate than hot rolling.
Why Are Steel Pipes So Popular?
Steel structure building is a new type of energy-saving and environment-friendly building system. It is called the “green building” of the 21st century. Steel structure building has the characteristics of light weight, high strength, good seismic performance, energy saving and recyclability. It meets the requirements of energy-saving development of buildings and sustainable and healthy economic development. The greatest advantage of steel structure is the perfect combination of people’s functional, sensory requirements and economic requirements for buildings. With its superior performance, the scope of application of steel tube structure has been developing rapidly in recent years, involving almost all structural fields, including housing construction, bridges, dams, offshore platform structures and tower masts.
Hollow section steel is used for transporting fluids, such as pipelines carrying oil, gas, gas, water and some solid materials. It is an economical cross-sectional steel in terms of bending and torsional strength compared to round and other solid steels. In addition, it is light in weight. Therefore, it is widely used in the manufacture of structural and mechanical parts such as drill rods, automobile transmissions, bicycle frames and steel scaffolding for construction. The use of steel pipe manufacturing ring parts, you can improve material utilization, simplify the manufacturing process, save material and processing time. Such as rolling rings, jackets, etc., has been widely used in the manufacture of steel pipe.
Large Diameter Steel Pipe
Large diameter steel pipe has good adhesion, corrosion resistance, can resist acid, alkali and other chemical corrosion, non-toxic, non-rusting, abrasion resistance, impact resistance, strong permeability. The smooth pipe surface will not adhere to any substance and can reduce the conveying resistance. Large diameter steel pipe improves flow and conveying efficiency and reduces conveying pressure loss. Solvent-free coating, no exudate, thus no pollution to the conveyed medium to ensure the purity and health of the fluid. It can be used in the range of -40℃ to +80℃ in alternate thermal cycles without aging.
Large diameter steel pipe is a pipe with outer diameter of 1000MM or more. Large-diameter plastic-coated steel pipe is made of solvent-free coating on the basis of large-diameter spiral welded pipe and high-frequency welded pipe. It is widely used in water, natural gas, petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, electric power. Large diameter steel pipe marine engineering field is generally smaller than the outer diameter of the pipe 89 are collectively referred to as small diameter steel pipe.
