How to choose proper carbon steel pipe in your project in 2018?
In the current steel pipe market, carbon steel pipe can be divided into two major categories: cold rolled steel pipe and hot rolled steel pipe. Specifically, cold-rolled (allocated) not only comprises general carbon steel pipe steel pipe, low pressure boiler pipe, high pressure boiler pipe, steel pipe, stainless steel pipe, oil cracking pipe and other steel pipes, but also includes carbon thin-walled steel, alloy thin-walled steel, stainless thin-walled stainless steel pipe, as well as special- shaped steel pipe. The dimensional accuracy of cold-rolled is higher than that of hot-rolled. Hot-rolled carbon steel tube is divided into general, low, medium pressure boiler pipe, high pressure boiler pipe, steel pipe, stainless steel pipe, oil cracking pipe, geological steel pipes and other steel pipe.
It is believed that many people are wondering how to choosing the proper structural steel materials for your next project. In fact, there are a few commercial issues under considerations. Galvanized steel pipe generally has the rational cost effective in the market. Compared with other typical steel pipe coatings, such as specialized painting, powder coating, it is are much more labor-intensive, resulting in a higher initial cost for contractors. Besides, due to its durability and anti-corrosive properties, galvanized steel pipe can recycled and reused, which to some degree save a lot of money during the post maintenance work. Furthermore, testing and studies have revealed that the average life expectancy for galvanized steel used as a typical structure material is well beyond 50 years in a rural environment and 20-25 years or more in an extreme urban or coastal setting. In that regard, contractors can confidently use this product in project.
Hot dipped galvanized pipe has been considered popular a lot among many users today. For one thing, the galvanization process protects the steel from rusting damage that can occur during transportation, installation and service. The zinc layer on the surface of pipe can form a barrier protection for steel products to extend the service life in applications. For the other thing, this layer is also resistant to wear and scratches, which makes the steel look more attractive. With the layer of protection, pipes can be used in outdoor areas, and can withstand the harm from some of the environmental effects. Galvanized steel pipe is used in many outdoor applications such as fencing, fence posts and water-supply pipes.
In short, carbon steel pipes do have a wide range of uses for a variety of applications in life, such as low pressure conveyance of gas, water, oil, air steam or other fluids. They are used in machinery, buildings, sprinkler systems, irrigation systems, and water wells. For applications where corrosion protection is critical, carbon steel pipe can be painted or galvanized. However, as a professional steel pipe manufacturer in China, we would kindly give you a remind that as the carbon content increases, the material becomes harder but more brittle, or prone to breaking under stress or load.
