ASTM A53 Standard specification for pipe, steel, black and hot-dipped, zinc-coated, welded and seamless.
The welded steel pipe refers to a steel pipe which is welded and formed into a shape of a circle or a square by bending a steel strip or a steel plate, and has a seam on the surface thereof.
During steel manufacturing, oxygen is forcibly injected into it to ledel. The oxygen combines with excess carbon and is released as a gas. Excess oxygen is, however, unavoidably left in the molten steel. This results in the formation of oxide…
ASTM A53 Covers BLACK and hot-dipped GALVANIZED WELDED and SEAMLESS nominal size and wall pipe suitable for welding and for coiling, bending, flanging, and other forming operations.
A question was put to the PM Engineer (PME) staff (one of SUPPLY HOUSE TIMES sister magazines) asking how nominal pipe size came to be. Here is the answer provided by PME Editorial Director Julius Ballanco.
ASTM A53 is a carbon steel alloy, used for structural steel pipe.
ASTM’s steel standards are instrumental in classifying, evaluating, and specifying the material
Reducing tees are also recommended for industrial plant fluid power systems.
The difference between ASTM A53 pipe vs A106 Pipe in spec scope, pipe chemical composition, mechanical properties (tensile & yield strength etc), pipe type.
