601 Nickel Pipe, 625 Nickel Tubing & other Nickel Alloy Products

October 18, 2012 in Blog, Manufacturing, Pipe by

 601 Nickel Pipe, 625 Nickel Tubing & other Nickel Alloy ProductsPipes are made of many different materials, including concrete, plastic, fiberglass, ceramics and a wide array of metals. Each material has its advantages — its properties that make it useful in certain situations. For example, aluminum is used in refrigerant systems for heat transfer. Plastic tubing is useful for its chemical resistance, non-corrosive properties and light weight. Ceramic and concrete work well for low-pressure conditions such as drainage or gravity flow. However when pipes must survive intense conditions, many rely on Nickel alloys.

Steel: Reducing, Reusing & Recycling

July 25, 2012 in Industry Trends, Manufacturing, News & Articles by

structural1 Steel: Reducing, Reusing & RecyclingSteelmakers are continuing to adopt good practices to protect the earth. Fortunately, being energy efficient is not only environmentally responsible, but it is cost efficient too. Not to mention all the pressure that various environmental agencies are putting on manufacturers. Green practices allow steel products to be cheaper, so international pipe sales can increase and more people can afford to buy I-beam steel, for example.

By reducing, reusing and recycling, steel companies are saving energy, reducing CO2 emissions and conserving resources.

Types of Stainless Steel Flanges Explained

November 02, 2011 in Blog, Manufacturing, News & Articles, Pipes Valves and Fittings, Valves and Fittings by

High pressure steel flanges are essential to include in your next piping project. Stainless steel flanges are highly resistant to corrosion and contain enough strength for your industrial piping plan. For high temperature and pressure treatment, consider purchasing high pressure steel flanges that comply with ASTM, ASME, ANSI and/or API standards.

API vs. ASME/ANSI standards:

Flanges meeting API standards can withstand high pressures and temperatures. The main difference between flanges that meet API standards and those that meet ASME or ANSI standards is the material used that can handle a high-pressure environment. Typically they are more efficiently used in dealings with gas and oils. When working with water, air, and steam in an industrial setting, ASME/ANSI flanges are more common.
