Application of carbon steel seamless pipe

seamless steel pipe manufacturing process

A cylindrical bar of steel is used to produce SMLS pipe. After heating the bar to a high temperature, a probe is put into the cylinder to produce a hole. The cylinder is then moved to rollers that shape it to the required diameter and wall thickness.

Advantages of Seamless steel Pipe

The condition of seamless steel pipes is crucial in many fields, particularly in applications demanding top quality, performance, and safety. Many engineers and manufacturers choose this material because it has special benefits and can be used in different ways. Here are its main advantages:

Uniform Shape

Seamless steel pipes are generally more dimensionally precise and more stable in shape than welded steel pipes.

High Strength

Seamless steel pipes have a uniform structure and high compressive strength because there are no welds.

Corrosion Resistance

Seamless steel pipes exhibit a uniform surface without any irregularities found in welded seams. This reduces the chance of corrosion.

Extreme Temperature

As seamless steel pipes are manufactured without the inclusion of welding in the production process. So they can handle extreme temperatures and are less likely to crack. 

Seamless vs Welded Pipe

The manufacturing of seamless pipes involves the use of high-quality steel that is cast into round shape and then pierced at the center. It then undergoes some rolling processes along with heat treatment and is then cut into different sizes depending on the need. These pipes are devoid of any welding joint, which enhances their structural integrity. Seamless pipes are durable, can bear high temperature and pressure, and have greater corrosion-resistance. They have uniform properties throughout their length, making them better than welded pipes.

Seamless Pipe

  • Expensive
  • No welded joint in the pipes
  • Made of solid round billets or steel
  • Outer diameter varies between 1/8 Inch and 26 Inch
  • Can bear high pressure
  • Thickness tolerance is instable.

Welded Pipe

  • Cheaper option compared to seamless pipes
  • May have one or more welded joints
  • Main raw material is steel coils
  • Outer diameter varies between 2-3/8 Inch and 24 Inch
  • Can’t withstand high Pressure
  • Thickness tolerance is moderately precise
  • Length tolerance is moderately precise

What is Seamless Steel Pipe?

A seamless steel pipe is perforated from round surface and has no welds on its surface. They’re of various types depending on their method of manufacturing, such as cold-drawn, cold-rolled, hot rolled and extruded seamless steel pipes.

The manufacturing of seamless steel pipes starts with billet production, which is a cylindrical solid steel bar. They’re produced through continuous rolling of steel. The billets are then heated at high temperatures to soften the steel, and the billets are pierced at the center with the help of a mandrel mill or piercing mill.

It creates a hollow shell, leading to the formation of the pipe. The diameter of this piercing billet is further reduced by rolling and stretching it. This hollow shell goes through a sizing mill, which ensures its dimensions according to the specifications. The pipe is then cooled to stabilize its structure, and additional surface treatment is given if needed for rust prevention.

These pipes are widely used in engineering and manufacturing industries. These pipes are used in large quantities to transport water, oil, natural gas and other solid materials.These pipes are additionally utilized in the fabrication of ring components. Their smooth interior surface reduces frictional resistance for flow of fluid, and their corrosion-resistance makes them last long enough. More importantly, they’ve a uniform structure throughout, making them reliable.

Seamless steel pipes are usually better than welded steel pipes. They have several advantages, such as:

  1. No welds: Seamless steel pipes are made from one piece of steel billet, without any welds. This avoids welds that might happen during welding. By eliminating potential weaknesses from welding, the pipe becomes stronger overall.
  2. Higher compressive strength: Seamless steel pipes don’t have welds, so their structure is more uniform. This gives them higher compressive strength. This makes seamless steel pipes more suitable in high-pressure and high-temperature environments.
  3. Better corrosion resistance: Seamless steel pipes have a smooth surface, reducing the chance of corrosion. The welds are even. Seamless steel pipes are more reliable in applications that need corrosion resistance.
  4. Suitable for high and low temperature environments: Seamless steel pipes are good for high and low temperature environments. They don’t crack easily.
  5. Precise dimensions and stable shape: Seamless steel pipes are usually more precise in size and more stable in shape than welded ones. This is better for bigger applications, like making precision machinery and equipment.

When choosing a seamless steel pipe specification for a project, multiple factors are considered. Here are some guiding steps and considerations:

1. Understand project requirements:

Figure out why the pipe is used: for carrying liquids, gases, or for building structures.

2. Consider the work environment:

Think about the environmental conditions for the pipeline, like temperature, pressure, and chemicals. In certain conditions, like extreme heat, pressure, or corrosive surroundings, special seamless steel pipes may be needed.

3. Check out relevant standards:

To find out the specifications and performance requirements for seamless steel pipe in specific applications, you can refer to international, national, or industry standards. Common standards include ASTM, API, DIN, etc.

4. Determine pipe size:

To meet engineering specifications, find the size of the seamless steel pipe: outer diameter, wall thickness, and length. These dimensions should meet the flow requirements and structural design of the project.

5. Consider corrosion resistance:

Choose stainless steel or other corrosion-resistant alloys if the media will corrode the pipe.

6. Pay attention to compressive strength:

Compressive strength is generally affected by pipe material and wall thickness.

7. Follow the project budget:

Make sure the specifications of the seamless steel pipe you choose fit within the project budget. The prices of seamless steel pipes of different specifications and materials may vary greatly.

8. Consider maintainability:

When choosing steel pipes for a pipeline, consider maintenance requirements and opt for easy-to-maintain seamless specifications. This helps reduce maintenance costs in the future.

9. Comply with regulations and safety standards:
