Top Projects for Carbon Pipe

August 28, 2013 in Jobs/Projects, Pipe by

Carbon pipeWhen you’re thinking of starting a piping project, it can be hard to decide which pipe may work best for your needs. But Carbon pipe distributors know that carbon pipes are a great option for all types of applications. Because of it’s durability and strength, carbon pipe is a popular option for a number of projects. Let’s take a look at a few of the top uses, so you can decide if it’s right for you.

Transport and Service: Heavy traffic can put high amounts of pressure on roadway foundations, but the high tensile strength of carbon pipe, in addition to its elasticity and its ductility, allow it to be used safely in transport and service projects. Carbon pipe distributors know the product works well for water mains under roadways because it’s highly resistant to shock and vibration. It also tends to react more evenly when put under various degrees of fluctuating water pressure. Additionally, it can be made much thinner than pipes made from other materials. This means that it has a greater carrying capacity. Plus, it’s cheaper than copper, and the durability of carbon pipe helps decrease costs needed for repairs or replacement.

Steel Pipe Pricing And Advantages

July 17, 2013 in Pipe, Structural by

Steel pipeSteel piping is a popular material in so many industries–from oil to automobiles, from shipping to food, from schools to hospitals and refineries.

Let’s look at some of the top reasons why engineers, builders, pipe suppliers and oil drillers love steel pipes and why they’re preferred in so many different applications.

Heat Treatable

Some steel pipe alloys, such as alloy 140, are heat treatable, meaning that extreme temperatures can be used to modify their chemical and physical properties.

Strength

Steel pipes have great tensile and stress-to-rupture strength, and they can maintain this strength even at high temperatures.

Temperature Resistant

Stainless steel pipes provide excellent resistance to oxidation at extremely high temperatures. And when chromium is added to the steel, it makes the steel even more temperature resistant.
