Galvanized Steel Pipe
Coated in zinc, galvanized steel pipes are protected from oxidation and rust, which ultimately prevents deterioration of the pipe. They are a great option when you need to protect your steel pipes from a corrosive environment. The protective quality of galvanized pipe is created through a hot-dipping process, where the zinc then provides a protective layer that will rust away before any of the steel is affected. In terms of durability, a galvanized steel pipe can last well over 100 years, depending on the amount of corrosion exposure.
As an industry-leading steel tubing manufacturer, Totten Tubes carries galvanized structural pipes in-stock and ready to ship for your next project. We also carry a wide selection of custom steel pipe options including carbon steel, stainless steel, and seamless steel pipes. Whatever your application needs are, we have the best steel pipe options for you.
Benefits of Galvanized Structural Pipe
Galvanized pipe maintains a wide range of benefits, suitable for use in highly corrosive environments. The semi-smooth, zinc finish of galvanized steel pipe provides a layer of protection that is not seen in other types of protective materials. The galvanized coating process protects the underlying steel from encountering corrosive elements that could deteriorate the steel and ultimately weaken its structural integrity. Main advantages of galvanized structural pipe include:
- Protects against corrosion and rust
- Increased structural longevity
- Overall enhanced reliability
- Affordable protection
- Easy to inspect
- Less repairs
- Rugged toughness
- Easier to maintain than standard painted pipes
- Protected by advanced ASTM standardization
Common Applications for Galvanized Steel Pipe
Galvanized pipe is an excellent choice for many applications and processing techniques. Some common applications for galvanized steel pipe include:
- Hot and cold liquid transportation
- Exposed environments
- Marine environments
With the proper protection galvanized pipe can also be sawed, torched, or welded. Galvanized structural pipe is ideal for numerous types of applications where corrosion resistance is required.
Galvanized Steel Pipe and Custom Steel Options
Totten Tubes carries a wide range of steel pipe options for your specific project requirements. We construct our custom steel pipe options from the finest steel grades and are available in several sizes. We have several steel pipe options that have their own advantages, as outlined below.
Carbon Steel Pipe Benefits
Carbon steel pipe provides many benefits that make it highly useful for applications such as transporting gas, oil or other types of fluids. These pipes can be used in buildings, machinery, or irrigation systems. The benefits of carbon steel pipe include:
- Shock resistant
- Extremely safe
- Increased tensile strength
- Corrosion resistant
- Advanced recyclability
Stainless Steel Pipe Advantages
Stainless steel pipe resists oxidation, making it a low-maintenance solution suitable for high temperature and chemical applications. Since it can be easily cleaned and sanitized, stainless steel pipe is desirable for applications involving food, beverages, and pharmaceutical applications. The benefits of stainless-steel pipe include:
- Easy to machine
- Easy to sanitize
- Low maintenance
- Superior corrosion resistance
Seamless Steel Pipe Uses
Seamless steel pipe does not contain any welded seams. It is manufactured through a heating process that starts with a solid piece of round steel billet and ends with a pipe without seams. Seamless steel pipe is used for shipbuilding, nuclear device, gas, petrochemical and boiler industries. Some added benefits of seamless steel pipe include:
- Shape uniformity
- Superior load strength
- Increased pressure ratings
- Added reliability in extreme hot and cold environments
