What are steel pipes?


Steel pipes are long, hollow pipes that are used for a variety of purposes. They are
produced by two distinct methods which result in either a welded or seamless pipe. In both
methods, raw steel is first cast into a more workable starting form. It is then made into a
pipe by stretching the steel out into a seamless tube or forcing the edges together and
sealing them with a weld. The first methods for producing steel pipe were introduced in the
early 1800s, and they have steadily evolved into the modern processes we use today.
Each year, millions of tons of steel pipe are produced. Its versatility makes it the most
often used product produced by the steel industry.
Steel pipes are found in a variety of places. Since they are strong, they are used
underground for transporting water and gas throughout cities and towns. They are also
employed in construction to protect electrical wires. While steel pipes are strong, they can
also be lightweight. This makes them perfect for use in bicycle frame manufacture. Other
places they find utility is in automobiles, refrigeration units, heating and plumbing systems,
flagpoles, street lamps, and medicine to name a few.ng, hollow tubes that are used for a

What are steel tubes?
Steel tubes are round, cylindrical shapes that are hollow. Steel tubes have a wide variety
of structural and architectural applications. Unlike steel pipes, steel tubes are measured
by their outside diameter and their wall thickness.

Although pipes and tubes may look similar, they are in fact quite different in nomenclature
and sizing. Remember that pipes and tubes are rarely interchangeable.

The difference between steel tubes and steel pipes:

1. Pipe Diameter and Tube Diameter


Steel tube
Steel tube is generally used for structural purposes and the OD is an important and exact
number. Steel tube size is specified by OD and the wall thickness (WT); and the
measured OD and stated OD are generally within very close tolerances of each other.
Steel tube is usually more expensive than steel pipe due to tighter manufacturing
tolerances.
Interestingly, while the stated and measured OD’s of steel tubes are almost exact most of
the time, steel tube generally has a measured OD that is 1/8‖ larger than stated OD.
Steel pipes
Steel pipes are categorized as tubular vessels used in pipeline and piping systems, and
commonly transport gases or fluids. They are specified by ―Nominal Pipe Size‖ (NPS) and
Schedule (wall thickness). NPS is a size standard established by the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI), and should NOT be confused with the various thread
standards such as NPT and NPSC.
The manufacturing of Nominal Pipe Sizes from 1/8‖ to 12‖ is based on a standardized
nominal outside diameter (OD) that is different from the measured OD. NPS pipe 14‖ and
up have measured OD’s that correspond to the nominal size.
For example: The actual outside diameter of 1¼‖ pipe is 1.625″ – while 1¼″ tube has a
true 1.25″ outside diameter.
Pipes accommodate larger applications with sizes that range from a half-inch to several
feet. Tubes are generally used in applications that require smaller diameters. While
10-inch pipes are common, it’s rare that you will come across a 10-inch tube. The nominal
dimensions of tubes are based on the outside diameter. The purpose with a pipe is the
transport of a fluid like water, oil or similar, and the most import property is the capacity or
the inside diameter.

Tubing is more used in structures so the od is the important number. The strength of a
steel tube depends on the wall thickness. So tubing is specified by the outside diameter
and the wall thickness. Steel tubes are also not only supplied in round sections but can be
formed into square and rectangular tubes. Each square or rectangular steel tube has a
different mother tube, meaning that they are formed from the original round tube. The
round tube will pass through a forming and a sizing section on the tube mill. During the
same process it will continue through a couple of sets of turks which will form the round
tube to a square or a rectangular steel section.
Pipes are normally used to transport gases or fluids so it is important to know the capacity
of the pipe. Here the internal cross-sectional area (defined by the id) is important. It’s
therefore not surprising that pipes are specified by the inside diameter (id). It is common to
identify pipes in inches by using NPS or ―Nominal Pipe Size‖. The metric equivalent is
called DN or ―diameter nominal‖. The metric designations conform to International
Standards Organization (ISO) usage and apply to all plumbing, natural gas, heating oil,
and miscellaneous piping used in buildings. A plumber always knows that the id on the
pipe label is only a *nominal* id. As an example, a (nominal) 1/8 wrought steel pipe will
typically have a *measured* id of 0.269 (schedule 40) or 0.215 (schedule 80). (More
below about those schedule numbers.)
The key in the difference is the application where both tube and pipe are used for. For
instance, a (nominal) 1/8 schedule 40 pipe will have a wall thickness of 0.068 (id=0.269)
while a 1/8 schedule 80 pipe will have a wall thickness of 0.095 (id=0.215).
And these schedule numbers do not reflect a constant wall thickness. For instance, a
(nominal) 1/4 schedule 40 pipe has a wt = 0.088 while the same pipe in schedule 80 has
wt = 0.119 Generally speaking, a tube will have a consistent OD and its ID will change.
Steel tubes used in structural applications would most likely be seam welded while pipes
are normally a seamless steel product. Some steel tubes are also used in the transport of
fluids, even though they are seam welded. These include steel tubes for water pipes and
welded tubes are commonly used in the agricultural industry for manufacturing pivots.

Such tubes will undergo a process called pressure testing were the tube is sealed at both
ends and water is pumped through the tube up to a certain level of pressure. This will
quickly indicate if there is a leak or a bad spot in the weld of the circular hollow section
tested.

2. Wall Thickness Difference

The wall thickness of pipes and tubes is an important factor to tell difference. The
thickness of tubing is often specified by a gauge for thinner thicknesses and for thicker
tubing it is indicated by fractions of an inch or millimeters. The normal range for tubing is
20 gauge, which measures .035 inch, up to a thickness of 2 inches. The wall thickness of
a pipe is referred to as a pipe schedule, which you can find the relevant between pipe
schedule and thickness in millimeter or inch in specification ASME B36.10. The most
common schedules are SCH 20,SCH 40 and SCH 80. Schedule 40 is the most common
and 80 is extra heavy. Which is needed to be noted, the pipe schedule is not set for all
diameters; it varies.

For example:

Diameter 8inch/219.1 pipe, pipe schedule is SCH 40 = wall thickness is


0.322inch/8.18mm,

Diameter 12 inch /323.9 pipes, sch 40 refers wall thickness of 0.406inch/10.31mm.

There is no formula between the pipe schedule and wall thickness, the only is to refer to
the ASME B36.10 or relevant standards.

3. Pipes Tolerance & Tube Tolerance

Pipes are usually used for transporting or distributing, then the properties of pressure or
straightness, roundness are strictly specified, the tolerance for pipes is more loose than
tubes comparatively. Here the tolerance refers to diameter tolerance, wall thickness
tolerance, straightness tolerance, roundness tolerance etc.

4. Manufacturing Difference of pipes and tubes


As we mentioned above, tubes will require higher level requirements, consequently, even
from the material producing to the tube or pipe manufacturing process will be different.
Tubes will require much more process, tests, inspection than pipes. The delivery time will
be longer, too. The yield of tubes are comparatively much lower than pipes. Pipe
manufacturing is easier compare to tubes and it’s in mass production

5. Cost & Price


As per to the above, to manufacture tubes will take much more labor, energy, material etc,
so the production cost is surely higher than pipes. And just because the high level
requirement of tubes, the low yield of tubes will also increase the cost and price. While the
process of pipes is easier. And pipes are manufactured in large lot and cut the cost.

6. Use of Pipes and Tubes


Pipes are used for fluids and gases, such as water, oil, gas or propane or as steam
pipe, boiler pipe etc. Just because of this, the outside & inside diameter is the key
measurement — it indicates how much can flow through the pipe. Also that’s the reason
why the pressure rating is so important, because the pressure must be under the transport
or distribute pressure range. Tubes, however, are often put to use in applications that
require precise outside diameters, like with medical tubes, weapon part, industrial parts,
cooler tubes, heat exchanger tubes and boiler tubes. Tubes are usually used in medical

www.steeljrv.com

area, construction, structure or load bearing etc. This is why the outside diameter is
important because it indicates how much it can hold as a stability factor.

7. Material
Piping is usually made of carbon steel or low alloy steel. while tubing is often made of mild
steel, aluminum, brass, copper, chrome or stainless steel etc. Different material also lead
to different cost and price.

8. Mechanical Properties and Chemical Properties


For pipes the pressure rating, yield strength, ductibility properties are more important.
However, for tubes, the hardness, tensile strength, high precision is the key to high quality.
Those elements like C, Mn, S, P, Si are the main chemical elements for pipes, and there is
few microelements requirements . While for tubing, the microelements are very important
to the quality and process.

9 Connection /Join Welding


Connecting pipes is more labor intensive as it requires welding, threading or flanges and
relevant equipments. Tubes can be joined quickly and easily with flaring, brazing or
couplings, but for this reason, they don’t offer the same stability. Pipe welding is safer than
―tube join‖.

10. Ductibility

Pipe is available in rigid ―joints‖, which come in various lengths depending on the material.
Tubing, in particular copper, comes in rigid hard tempered ―joints‖ or soft tempered
(annealed) rolls. Some tubing also comes in rigid ―joints‖ or flexible rolls. The temper of
the copper, that is whether it is a rigid ―joint‖ or flexible roll, does not affect the sizing.

11. Packing
Pipes to delivered are in bundle or just bulk delivery. Because we just need to protect the
pipes surface from serious damage and no need to protect from any light chafing. While
tubes are usually wrapped with wooden box or thin film for each tube, especially for
medical area tube.

12. Surface Finish

For outdoor field transporting or underground transporting, pipes need to be painted or


coating to anti corrosion or oxidation. Tubes are sour cleaning or special polish treatment
for particular field use.

www.steeljrv.com

13. Quantity

For long transport or distributing, piping is often used in mass quantity and for long
distance application. So, the order of pipes are usually large. While tubes may be used in
small quantity.

14. Pipe End and Tube End


Pipe ends are usually in plain or beveled so as to welding. while tubes are with coupling
ends or specially end finish, like irregular ends, special screw thread etc.

15. Application
Pipes accommodate larger applications with sizes that range from a half-inch to several
feet. Tubes are generally used in applications that require smaller diameters. While
10-inch pipes are common, it’s rare that you will come across a 10-inch tube.

Bright annealing tube

Bright annealing tube under a reducing atmosphere or in a vacuum protection, after high
temperature solid melting and rapid cooling to get the stainless steel tube, requiring the
inner surface has a very good surface roughness and cleanliness, is a comprehensive
consideration of organizational stability corrosion resistance and workability of the pipe.

Bright annealed tube inner surface roughness Ra values and their own cleanliness is
extremely demanding, so the particles can occur during transport and accumulation of
fluid retention has been effectively curbed. In addition, the chemical composition of the
pipe and the base material dimensional tolerances need to be strictly controlled to ensure
the weldability of steel and the welding quality in the welding fumes, which can reduce the
occurrence of particle generation and improving the corrosion resistance of welded parts,
and smoothness.

BRIGHT ANNEALING TUBE PRODUCTION CONTROL:

 Smelting raw materials must have good control, the level required to meet the
microstructure times better level.
 Cold rolling volume control and reasonable within the organization in order to
avoid defects.
 Mold control, to ensure the inner and outer surface roughness R a ≤ 0.3μm.

 Bright annealing control to ensure reasonable mechanical properties and surface


brightness, and eliminate the pass mechanical polishing (MP), to ensure the
smoothness of the inner surface under microscopic state, to avoid transmission
fluid residues.
 Cleaning the control surfaces should have the products delivered better
cleanliness and cleanliness, with metallic colors, no oil adhesion, oxide adhesion.
 Single hats loss prevention bagging, overall braid or wooden packaging.

ANSI Standard of Stainless Steel Pipe Chart

Stainless steel pipe is one of the more standardized materials in the building and
engineering industries. The thickness of the pipe walls, diameter of the pipe and even the
chemical composition are all written as part of the American National Standards Institute
standards, which is just one of multiple standards available.

WALL THICKNESS

Stainless steel pipe categorized by the American National Standards Institute uses the
term schedule in reference to the pipe’s wall thickness. Despite this standardization, the
wall thickness is not the same for every diameter of pipe. Instead, the schedule refers to
the general strength of the pipe. Therefore, a schedule 40S stainless pipe has a wall
thickness of approximately 1.73mm for a pipe with outside diameter of 10.3mm but
increases to 9.53mm for a pipe of the same schedule but 323.9mm in diameter. There are
four general schedules for stainless pipe; 5S, 10S, 40S and 80S.

DIAMETER

Within each schedule of pipe there are multiple diameters of stainless steel pipe
standardized by ANSI. These diameters range from 10.3mm (or .405 inches) to 323.9mm
(or 12.75 inches). It is important to note that some diameters are not available in every
schedule. For instance, the smallest diameters are not available in schedule 5S and many
diameters are very difficult to find in some schedules, or very expensive if they are
available.

MATERIALS

Though ANSI standardizes stainless steel pipe, there are multiple formulas of stainless
steel available. The two primary steels used in the manufacture of stainless steel pipe are
ANSI 304 stainless steel and ANSI 316. Both steels have similar chemistry and differ only
slightly in the amount of chromium in the steel.
