How to make a choice between welded steel pipe and seamless pipe?
To make a choice for a project between different types of steel pipe or tube seems always a headache issue among most of end-users in life. In the steel market, we can often find two major categories of pipe : welded pipe and seamless pipe. There are many customers have asked us about how to make a choice between these two types of pipe. Here we will provide you with more information in detail.
Obviously, the difference in the basic manufacturing method is from their names. Seamless pipe is extruded and drawn from a billet while welded pipe is produced from a strip that is roll formed and welded to produce a tube. Generally speaking, there is a difference in the steel pipe prices between these two types of pipe due to different manufacturing methods in a mill.
Although the working pressure of welded pipe is 20% less than that for a similar seamless pipe, working pressure is not the determining factor for choosing seamless pipe over welded pipe for analyzer sample lines. The difference in potential impurities, which reduce the corrosion resistance of the finished pipe, is why seamless pipe is specified.
As we have talked more about the advantages of seamless steel pipe in use previously, today we would like to talk more as follows.
