BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO TYPES OF STAINLESS STEEL PIPES

As we know, Steel is an alloy made out of iron and carbon. Different types and amount of alloying elements

As we know, Steel is an alloy made out of iron and carbon. Different types and amount of alloying elements used determine the hardness, ductility, and tensile strength of steel. Stainless Steel contains high chromium content which forms an invisible layer that prevents the steel from corrosion and staining.

Compared to regular steel, Stainless Steel possesses properties such as -

·         Corrosion resistance

·         Oxidation

·         Rust-free

·         High performance

·         High quality, and

·         High strength

 

With these properties, it makes a particular statement based on their chemical and physical properties; their usage varies in various industries and is available in an extensive range of forms, grades, finishes, and different width and lengths. The pipes have different properties that give it a unique use in their respective industries, and if you want to know about the different types of piping materials, you must be well-versed in which stainless steel products should use in which industry.

 

To simplify things, we present an overview of the regular uses of stainless steel pipes and their generic industry usage. To start with, let's discuss the types of Stainless Steel Pipes.

1. Seamless Pipes

A seamless pipe is a type of pipe that does not contain any seams or welded joints. It is capable of facing intense levels of pressure and also temperatures. It is used in a wide variety of different oil and gas applications and mechanical and engineering industries, making seamless pipes versatile as they are inspected with high levels of precision to ensure the quality of the material.

Industries where Seamless pipes are used:

·         Oil

·         Gas

·         Mechanical

·         Engineering

 

2. Welded Pipes

Welded pipes are flexible pipes and ordinary in every sector. They are corrosion-resistant, lightweight, and cost-effective than most other piping methods. Also, they offer the best value for money.

Industries where Welded pipes are used:

·         Engineering

·         Agriculture

·         Water Supply

·         Mechanical Structure

3. Polished Pipes

The mirror-polished pipes are rich in appearance, preventing rusting and corrosion and creating a reflecting surface. Using raw substance that adds various attributes produces them. It possesses features like withstanding heavier loads, high tensile strength, flexible, durable, and maintains good dimension accuracy.

Industries where Polished Pipes are used:

·         Pipeline

·         Oil & Gas

·         Mechanical

·         Plant

·         Marine Industry

·         Chemical Industry

·         Food Processing
