Except for specialist applications, commercially available pipe comes in standard sizes. Pipes in a variety of materials - including carbon steel, steel alloys, as well as some plastics - are manufactured in these standard sizes. The pipe size is specified with two numbers: the nominal pipe diameter (or bore) and the pipe schedule. This then sets the outside pipe diameter, the wall thickness (and hence the internal diameter). A list of common standard pipe sizes are given below.

4 mm = 303. As was discussed above. so does the wall thickness.com Pipe Support and Restraint Devices Made Per ASME Codes and Standards PRIVACY POLICY LEGAL CONTACT US http://www. 10S. XS (Extra Strong). a 12 inch NB pipe has a wall thickness of 1. This means that the actual internal pipe diameter may vary slightly from that quoted above. allowing it to handle higher design pressures.94 inches. 10.2 mm It is worth bearing in mind that wall thicknesses come within a specified tolerance. Calculation of Pipe Internal Diameter (ID) For process engineers. So for pipe of 12 inch NB (DN 300 mm) with a pipe schedule 5S. 100.a typical wall thickness tolerence is 12. for a given Nominal Bore or Diameter. As the schedule is increased. STD. Pipe Schedule The pipe schedule sets the pipe wall thickness.75 inches . The following pipe schedules are available (in order of increasing wall thickness): 5S. as this is used in line sizing calculations.pipingtech. 140. For example.2 x 0. the nominal bore and outside diameter are different.75 inches. The ID can be easily calculated. or 324 mm. the most important information is the pipe Internal Diameter (ID).406 inches (10. XXS (Double Extra Strong) and 160. At a pipe schedule of 160. depending on the engineering standard used . 40. The pipe ID is given by the pipe NB minus double the pipe wall thickness (which can be obtained from the pipe schedule). as long as the pipe NB / DN and schedule are known. has a wall thickness of 0.75 inches (324 mm) and 0.3 mm). 40S.4 mm). 30.html[10/3/2011 8:56:55 PM] . Thus: Pipe ID = 12.com/technicaldata/standard-pipe-sizes.156 inches (4 mm) . Obviously increasing the wall thickness of the pipe increases the mechanical strength of the pipe. a pipe with a 12 inch NB (DN 300 mm) has an OD of 12. the internal diameter of the pipe changes. It should be noted that not all pipe schedules are available for all pipe sizes. A spreadsheet for calculating pressure drops (in liquids) is given here. for a 12 NB (DN 300 mm) pipe. schedule 40.Standard Pipe Sizes pipe sizes with a NB of 12 inch (DN 300 mm) and below. Thus as the pipe schedule changes. 80. 20. 60. or Pipe ID = 324 mm . For example. the OD and wall thickness are respectively 12.2 x 10.312 inches (33. 120.
