Steel pipes are common and can be found in underground structures, laboratories, commercial and industrial buildings, as well as within residential walls. These pipes can transport water, natural gas, and waste, as well as fluids. There are three methods to make steel pipes. An extrusion mold is used to produce seamless steel pipes. The welding of the seams is what makes welded steel pipes. These pipes are cheaper. Casting is the third option. The casting method involves pouring molten steel into a mold. This method is very rare today.
Increased pressure ratings
The greatest benefit of a seamless steel pipe is its higher pressure ratings. The welded seam is the weakest part of the steel pipe when it is rolled and welded. The seamless steel pipe is free from seams, which means that the tensile strength of the pipe is uniform across its entire length. Nominal pressure ratings for steel pipes are determined by the tensile strength and wall thickness of the alloy (mixture of metals). While the seamless pipe is more costly, it allows for lighter wall thicknesses and a lower pipe weight. This can impact design and cost.
A seamless steel pipe is an extrusion of the alloy that continues to expand, allowing it to have a true circular shape. Because the seams are wrapped around another piece of steel before welding, welded seam pipes will not be as smooth in cross-sectional areas. Welding adds heat and equipment adds stress to keep the pipe together. The welding process creates variables that can cause warping. Seamless pipes preserve the round cross-section of the pipe, which is crucial during installation and addition of fittings.
Strength & Loads
While the seamless pipe is the most costly steel pipe, it is also the most reliable and has the lowest failure rates. Pressure calculations are therefore easier because the weld quality has been removed. The strength of seamless steel pipe under load is another advantage. The weight of the empty pipe must be supported for long distances. The material weight must be considered when the pipe starts transporting materials. The strength of a seamless steel pipe is superior to the welded pipe. The welded seam is where most pipe leaks and failures occur.
These features make seamless steel pipes the best choice for commercial pipe applications such as shipbuilding, pipelines, and oilfield equipment. They can also be used in extreme cold and hot environments, thanks to their durability.
