Second, seamless steel pipe

It is a long steel bar with a hollow section and no joints around it. The steel pipe has a hollow cross-section and is used in large quantities as a pipe for conveying fluids, such as pipes for transporting petroleum, natural gas, coal gas, water, and certain solid materials. Compared with solid steel such as round steel, steel pipes have a lighter weight when subjected to the same flexural and torsional strength, and are economical cross-section steels. They are widely used in the manufacture of structural and mechanical parts such as oil drill pipes, automobile transmission shafts, and bicycles. Frames and steel scaffolds used in construction. The use of steel pipes for the manufacture of annular parts can increase the material utilization, simplify the manufacturing process, save material and processing man-hours, such as rolling bearing rings, jack sleeves, etc. Currently, steel pipes are widely used for manufacturing. Steel pipe is also an indispensable material for various conventional weapons. The barrels, barrels, etc. must be made of steel pipes. Steel tubes can be divided into round tubes and shaped tubes according to the shape of the cross-sectional area. Since the circle area is the largest under the condition of the same circumference, more fluid can be transported by the circular tube. In addition, when the ring section is subjected to internal or external radial pressure, the force is more uniform. Therefore, most steel pipes are round pipes.

However, the circular tube also has certain limitations. For example, under the conditions of plane bending, the circular tube is not as strong as the square and rectangular tube, and some agricultural machinery skeletons, steel-wood furniture, etc. are commonly used and rectangular tubes. According to different uses also need to have other cross-sectional shape of the special-shaped steel pipe.

Welded steel pipe, also called welded pipe, is a steel pipe made by welding a steel plate or strip after crimping. Welded steel pipe production process is simple, high production efficiency, variety specifications, equipment, less, but the general strength is lower than the seamless steel pipe. Since the 1930s, with the rapid development of high-quality strip continuous rolling production and the advancement of welding and inspection technologies, the quality of welds has been continuously improved, and the variety and specifications of welded steel pipes have been increasing, and they have been replaced in more and more fields. Steel pipe. Welded steel pipes are divided into straight seam welded pipes and spiral welded pipes in the form of welds.

The straight seam welded pipe has a simple production process, high production efficiency, low cost, and rapid development. The strength of the spiral welded pipe is generally higher than that of the straight seam welded pipe. A narrower blank can be used to produce a larger diameter pipe, and a blank having a different diameter can be produced from a blank of the same width. However, compared with the straight seam pipe of the same length, the length of the weld seam increases by 30 to 100%, and the production speed is low.

Therefore, the smaller diameter welded pipe mostly adopts the straight seam welding, and the large diameter welded pipe adopts the spiral welding.

The use of the classification of pipes

First, steel pipe

According to its manufacturing method, steel pipes are divided into two kinds: seamless steel pipes and welded steel pipes. Seamless steel tubes are made of high-quality carbon steel or alloy steel, with hot rolling, cold rolling (pulling). Welded steel tubes are made by rolling into a tube-shaped steel plate and welded to a seam or spiral seam. In terms of manufacturing methods, they are divided into welded steel pipes for low-pressure fluid transportation, spiral welded steel pipes, direct welded steel tubes, and welded pipes. Seamless steel tubes can be used for various liquid and gas pipelines. Welding pipes can be used for water pipelines, gas pipelines, heating pipes, etc.

1.1 Welded steel pipe for low pressure fluid delivery and galvanized welded steel pipe

The welded steel pipe for low-pressure fluid transportation is made of carbon mild steel and is the most commonly used small-diameter pipe material in pipeline engineering. It is suitable for conveying water, coal gas, steam and other media. It is divided into plates according to the surface quality. Zinc pipes (commonly known as white iron pipes) and non-galvanized pipes (commonly known as black iron pipes). The inner and outer walls are coated with a zinc protective layer that is about 3% to 6% heavier than non-galvanized ones. According to the different wall thickness of the pipe, it can be divided into three types: thin-walled pipe, ordinary pipe and thickened pipe. Thin-walled tubes are not suitable for conveying media and can be used as a sleeve.

Seamless steel tubes are classified into hot rolled tubes and cold drawn (rolled) tubes according to the manufacturing method. The nominal diameter of the cold drawn (rolled) tube is 200 mm, and the maximum nominal diameter of the hot rolled tube is 600 mm. In pipeline engineering, when the pipe diameter exceeds 57mm, hot-rolled pipes are often used. When the pipe diameter is less than 57mm, cold-drawn (rolled) pipes are often used.
