We all know that steel is an anlloy and it is mainly composed of iron and carbon. Carbon is the most cost-effective alloy material, but there contains various other alloying elements, like tungsten and manganese, vanadium, chromium, etc. Thoese special factors determine the some special features of steel, including hardness ductility, tensile strength and the quality of steel. There is no doubt steel is applied in all kinds of areas and has become the most common material worldwide. And different kinds of steel pipes have been used almost facilities and buidings areas.

A steel pipe is a hollow cylinder or tube, is usually used to carry or transport facilities, but also can be used in structural engineering is an important part. Therefore, it plays a very important role in prodcutions and life.

The application of steel pipes

Generally, Steel pipe is not only used to transport fluid and powdered solid, the exchange energy, manufacturing, mechanical parts and containers, it is an economical steel. Made with steel grid structures, pillars and mechanical support, can reduce weight, save 20 to 40% of the metal, and the mechanized factory construction can be realized. Besides, using steel pipes to make highway bridges is not only save, simplified construction, and also can greatly reduce the size of the protective layer coating, saving investment and maintenance costs. So, any other type of steel can not fully replace the steel, but steel can replace part of the Sections and bars.

Because the average manufacturing cost of steel is not very high, so steel pipe price is more acceptable to people, so it is very broad field of applications, from people's everyday appliances, furniture, water supply and drainage, gas supply, ventilation and heating facilities to a variety of agricultural equipment manufacturing, the development of underground resources, defense and space used guns, bullets, missiles, rockets and so can not do without steel pipes.

The categories of steel pipe

According to the production methods of steel pipe, it can be divided to two cagegories: seamless pipe and weld steel pipe.

Seamless pipe is a kind of hollow cross-section, no seams around the circle, square, rectangular steel. Seamless steel pipe or solid steel ingot is made ​​of the capillary tube through the hole, then through the hot-rolled, cold rolled or cold call is made. Seamless steel pipe with a hollow cross-section, a large number of pipes for conveying fluids, such as steel and solid steel round bar compared to the same torsional strength in bending, lighter, is an economic cross-section steel, widely used in the manufacture structural parts and mechanical parts, such as drill pipe, automotive drive shafts, bicycle frames and construction using steel scaffolding.

Welded steel pipe with a steel or steel plate is bent round, square shape and then welded into the other, the surface of the pipe joints. Welded steel pipe is used in blank or strip.

Whatever it is seamless pipe, stainless pipe, weld steel pipe or galvanized steel pipe, production and life are inseparable from them. As long as steel pipe prices can keep stable, and steel industry will develop better via production technology innovation to get an irreplaceable position.

Now more and more  China steel suppliers can provide various different types steel pipe with proper prices. Therefore, there are custormers in the world who have imported steel pipe from China. And  seamless steel pipe has been exported into dozens of countries or areas, such as Guyana, Florida, Dubai, Mexico, Iran, etc. The SteelFromChina.com can provide latest steel pipe prices report in China and help people building the cooperation relationship.
