ERW steel pipes are made from either carbon steel or low alloy steel, depending on the specific application. They come in a wide range of sizes, ranging from small-diameter pipes used in plumbing systems to large-diameter pipes used in oil and gas pipelines. These pipes usually have a smooth surface finish, either uncoated or with protective galvanized coating or anti-corrosion coatings. ERW steel pipes are used for many applications, such as water and wastewater transportation, oil and gas pipelines, structural and construction purposes, HVAC systems, industrial and commercial plumbing, and mechanical and engineering applications.
ERW (Electric Resistance Welded) steel pipes are manufactured from high-quality steel materials for excellent strength and structural integrity. This makes them capable of withstanding high-pressure conditions and heavy loads. ERW pipes come in a wide range of sizes, from small diameters to large diameters, making them suitable for different requirements. It also makes them flexible for various applications.
The electric resistance welding process used in manufacturing ERW steel pipes results in a strong and reliable weld seam along the length of the pipe. This ensures a consistent and durable connection between pipe segments. ERW pipes are cost-effective, as they are cheaper to manufacture than other types of pipes due to the highly efficient production process. This also helps to maintain a higher level of production efficiency.
ERW steel pipes come in various sizes and are typically specified by their outer diameter (OD) and wall thickness. The size range available can go from small pipes with an OD of a few millimeters to large-diameter pipes with an OD exceeding several feet. The wall thickness of these pipes is typically measured in millimeters or inches, and these pipes come in different wall thicknesses that meet the required strength and pressure ratings for various applications. ERW steel pipes are typically available in standard lengths such as 6 meters (20 feet) or 12 meters (40 feet), but they can also be customized to specific lengths to fit project requirements. These pipes are manufactured using different grades of steel, such as carbon steel (e.g. ASTM A53, API 5L) and low alloy steel, which determine their mechanical properties and suitability for different applications.
The oil and gas industry makes extensive use of Electric Resistance Welded (ERW) steel pipes in order to transport oil, gas, and other hydrocarbon fluids. These pipes are essential for upstream exploration and production, midstream transportation, and downstream refining and distribution.
ERW steel pipes are also commonly employed in water supply and sewage systems for both municipal and agricultural purposes. With their high level of efficiency and reliability, they are able to transport potable water, wastewater, and irrigation water effectively.
ERW steel pipes are widely used in the construction industry, as well, for creating a variety of structural components. From building frameworks and columns to beams and other load-bearing structures, these pipes provide strength and durability.
