Carbon steel pipe is formed in different forms and shapes. There are different needs in the market and applications and the production caters for all the needs. The different grades give the different qualities of the product. The Carbon steel pipe could be either cold drawn or hot rolled. In case where low temperature applications need pipes with sufficient temperature resistance, high temperature resistant pipes are not needed. For this reason, low temperature carbon steel pipes are made. They are strong and ductile but are designed to withstand low temperatures. In applications where hot water or hot gases with lower temperatures flow in the pipes, they use this type of piping. The material could be produced in welded conditions, butt welded conditions or drawn conditions. The seamless carbon steel pipe is cold drawn, meaning there are no welded points along the pipe.
The pipe is uniform and is precise in its dimensions. This type of material is needed in applications where welding is not preferred and the dimensions need to be precise to fit seamlessly with the whole piping system. One of the most widely used grades of this type of steel is the A53 grade. And it comes in grade A or B. The grade B ranges from NPS1/4 to NPS26; covering ¼ inches to 26 inches internal diameter of pipes. There are different schedules to govern the wall thicknesses. The schedules of grade be can range from sch10 to sch 160. The A53 Grade B Pipe is convincing so that it is appropriate for low temperature applications.
