The production process of general seamless steel pipes can be divided into two types: cold-drawn and hot-rolled. The production process of cold-rolled seamless steel pipes is generally more complicated than that of hot rolling. The tube billet must first be subjected to three-roll continuous rolling, and then it must be processed after extrusion. In the sizing test, if the surface does not respond to cracks, the pipe will be cut by a cutting machine and cut into a blank of about one meter in length. Then enter the annealing process. Annealing needs to be pickled with acidic liquid. When pickling, pay attention to whether there is a lot of blistering on the surface. If there is a lot of blistering, it means that the quality of the steel pipe does not meet the response standard. In appearance, cold-rolled seamless steel pipes are shorter than hot-rolled seamless steel pipes. The wall thickness of cold-rolled seamless steel pipes is generally smaller than that of hot-rolled seamless steel pipes, but the surface looks brighter than thick-walled seamless steel pipes. Much rough, without too many burrs. The delivery state of hot-rolled seamless steel pipes is generally delivered after heat treatment in the hot-rolled state. After the quality inspection, the hot-rolled seamless steel pipe must be strictly hand-selected by the staff. After the quality inspection, the surface must be oiled, and then followed by multiple cold drawing experiments. After the hot rolling treatment, the piercing experiment must be carried out. , If the perforation diameter is too large, straightening should be carried out. After straightening, it is transported by the conveyor to the flaw detector for flaw detection experiment. Finally, the label is attached, the specifications are arranged, and then placed in the warehouse.

2. classification

①According to the shape of the section: circular section tube, special-shaped section tube

②According to material: carbon steel pipe, alloy steel pipe, stainless steel pipe, composite pipe

③According to the connection mode: threaded connection pipe, welding pipe

④According to the production method: hot rolled (extruded, topped, expanded) tube, cold rolled (drawn) tube

⑤According to purpose: boiler pipe, oil well pipe, line pipe, structural pipe, fertilizer pipe…

3. Production processes

①Main production process of hot-rolled seamless steel pipe (△main inspection process):

Tube billet preparation and inspection △→tube billet heating→perforation→tube rolling→pipe reheating→fixed (reduced) diameter→heat treatment△→finished pipe straightening→finishing→inspection△(non-destructive, physical and chemical, bench inspection)

②Main production process of cold rolled (drawn) seamless steel pipe:

Blank preparation → pickling and lubrication → cold rolling (drawing) → heat treatment → straightening → finishing → inspection

ASTM A53  pipe is US petroleum pipeline standard pipe. The pipe is widely used in the extraction of oil, gas, water field. The end can be flat, threaded, coupling, socket connection.

Steel Pipe End Finish

There are five common type of metal pipe end finishes;

  1. Threaded and Coupled
  2. Threaded without Coupling
  3. Plain End – Cut Square
  4. Beveled for Welding – 30 deg bevel
  5. Grooved End – Cut or rolled for mechanical coupling

Application

A 53 is a general steel pipe spec which covers galvanized pipe and black pipe. It is available in Type S (seamless), Type E (ERW, electric resistance welded longitudinal seam), and Type F (furnace welded).

A106 Gr. B is intended for high temperature service (up to 750 Deg F). It just applies to seamless steel pipe with killed steel. Pipe of NPS 1 1/2” and under may be either hot finished or cold drawn. Unless specified, pipe on and over NPS 2″ shall be furnished hot finished, while A53 and API 5L are not.

API 5L Gr. B (PSL-1) is mainly developed for Line pipes used in conveying gas, oil, and water in oil and gas industry. Either seamless steel pipe or welded pipe is OK.
