Seamless Steel Pipe
Seamless steel pipe is manufactured from solid, round steel billets that are pierced through the center with a mandrel. The billet is rolled and stretched through a hollow billet until it reaches a customer’s specification. Because of its uniform shape and ability to withstand pressure and heat, seamless steel pipe is an ideal material for many industries.Totten Tubes provides a variety of seamless pipe to meet your application needs, offering a large selection of sizes and lengths.
Benefits of Seamless Pipe
Seamless pipe provides a variety of benefits, depending on your application. They perform well in harsh conditions, meaning they can be used in extremely cold or hot conditions. Because of these benefits, seamless steel pipe is the preferred material in an array of commercial pipe applications.Other benefits of seamless steel pipes include:
- Ability to withstand high amounts of pressure
- Uniformity of shape
- Reliable strength under loading
Applications of Seamless Pressure PipeFor applications that feature high temperatures, high pressure, or corrosive materials, seamless steel pipe is often a great solution. Seamless steel pipe can be used in a variety of applications, include:
- Heat exchanger
- Chemical and petrochemical industry
- Power generation and environmental technologies
- Ship making/ shipbuilding
- Oil and gas applications
- Pressure applications
Choosing Between Seamless Pipe and Seamless TubingWhether you need seamless pipe or seamless tubing depends on your intended application. Seamless tubing is typically used for structural purposes. Because of this, the outside diameter and wall thickness are important and need to be within very close tolerances of each other.
Seamless steel pipe, however, is used to commonly transport gases or fluids in piping systems. Seamless pipe is measured using nominal outside diameter and wall thickness, instead of the exact OD and WT. Nominal OD is a standardized measurement, and it will not change if the wall thickness changes.
