Corrosion Protection for Steel Pipe

What is “corrosion”?

Technically, corrosion is a natural process, which converts a refined metal to a more stable form, such as its oxide, hydroxide, or sulfide. It is the gradual destruction of materials (usually metals) by chemical and/or electrochemical reaction with their environment. In the steel pipe world, corrosion protection generally refers to keeping the steel pipes from being converted to iron oxide (rust).

Generally speaking, metal corrosion occurs when metal is exposed to moisture and other elements or chemicals.  As it is generally a natural process it can lead to a severe decrease in the functionality and esthetics of metal products. Therefore, it is believed that a successful corrosion control program is a never ending practice. It begins with an effective design and installation of the pipeline, executing corrosion control methods, and maintaining and monitoring the lines.

Stainless Steel Pipe Rust - Scoda Tubes Ltd

Corrosion prevention can take a number of forms based on the specific circumstances where the metal tube has being corroded. Here, as a professional steel pipe manufacturer in India, we would like to introduce couples of useful methods of protecting pipe against corrosion as follows:


Turn to non-corrosive metals such as aluminum and stainless steel.


Keep the area around the metal surface dry.


Use drying agents and moisture barrier products.


Make sure underground piping is laid in a layer of backfill, such as limestone.


Make sure any electrical components are cleaned regularly

In real life, corrosion and repair of corrosion damage are multi-billion dollar problems. Estimates show steel corrosion costs the United States approximately $297 billion annually, or about 3% the national GDP. In that regards, it explains that high costs of production will cause the relatively high steel pipe price in the pipe market.
