heavy wall steel pipe is a type of pipe with higher wall thicknesses than average. These are used in petrochemical industries, chemical industries and nuclear power industries. The thick wall carbon steel tube withstands heavy pressures and stresses due to the strength of the wall. The applications also include oil and gas, research and development areas, defense industry and pulp and paper mills. The heavy wall seamless pipe is marked with the heavy wall schedule numbers such as EH, XH and XS.
Heavy Wall Carbon Steel Seamless Pipe
ASTM A53 Grade B Heavy Wall Thickness CS Pipe
There are various schedules to these pipes as they handle various levels of pressures. There are usually sch 80, 100, 120, 140 and 160 that have heavy walls. The heavy wall thickness seamless pipe can sometimes be double extra strong and is denoted as XXS or XXS. The material can vary as there are different grades of carbon steel that are used to make the different thick wall carbon steel pipe types. The high volume, high flow, high pressure systems like oil and gas transmission lines, water lines, and power plant cooling systems all used different types such as the 2 inch heavy wall pipe to make sure that the pipes don’t break in the middle of the operation due to the obvious pressure.
The outer diameters range from 1/8 inches to 36 inches and more for these pipes with different grades and standards such as API5 and Grades B, X42, X46 and so on. The material for heavy wall stainless steel pipe consists of carbon, manganese, phosphorus and sulfur. The pipes can have different types of finishes and polishes as well. The heavy wall carbon steel pipe is costlier than the light wall pipes but is necessary for the applications’ pressure requirements.
