Pipe, hollow structure, usually cylindrical, for conducting materials. it is used primarily to convey liquids, gases, solid suspended in a liquid, e.g., a slurry. it is also used as conduit for electric wires. Sometimes it is used a steel structure.
In carbon steel, the main alloying element is carbon. it has higher carbon content, which gives the steel a lower melting point, more malleability and durability, and better heat distribution.
Most commonly used specs are SA/ASTM A106 Gr.B/C;API 5L Gr.B SA/ASTM A53-B; SGP; ASTM A333Gr.6/3; APL 5L X42, 52,60,65,70; ASTM A139 (Spiral Pipe); ASTM 795.
There are also surface treatment for most of Carbon Steel Pipes. Most common are Black Paint and Hot-Dipped Galvanized, where some of pipe derived its name – Black Iron Pipe (B.I Pipes) and Galvanized Iron Pipes (G.I Pipes).
There are two(2) sub-categories for Carbon Steel Pipes. These are Carbon Steel Pipes and Carbon Steel Welded Pipes.
