The Advantages and Cost of Steel Pipe

August 27, 2014 in Pipe by

Steel pipeSteel is a very popular piping material. Here are some reasons why.

Resistance to Internal and External Pressure

Steel’s high tensile strength, ductility and elasticity give it the ability to withstand severe pressures. This performance advantage is particularly notable in stresses resulting from uneven bedding, misalignment, fluctuations in temperature or abnormal cover. Plus, steel pipes are often able to hold up to severe bending or longitudinal stresses that may cause other materials to fail.

Resistance to Shock and Vibration

Modern traffic can impose jarring and damaging shocks and vibrations on the pipes beneath roadways. In these situations, steel pipes are preferable. Their strength and lack of brittleness means they can withstand the stresses of vibrations much better than some other materials.

Protection Against Corrosion 

Galvanized steel pipes have a zinc coating that allows them to endure corrosive environments. The zinc serves as a ‘sacrificial metal’. It rusts before the steel underneath it, even if the zinc layer is scratched. This allows the functional steel part of the pipe to maintain its integrity for longer.

Wide Range of Joints
