What is carbon steel pipe?
Carbon steel pipe is a durable material made from carbon steel, a steel alloy with iron and carbon. Because of its strength and ability to withstand stress, carbon steel pipe is used in a variety of heavy-duty industries like infrastructure, ships, distillers, and chemical fertilizer equipment.It is the most commonly and widely used in the gas project field.Carbon steel pipe can be divided into seamless steel pipe and welded steel pipe points two categories.

Advantage of carbon steel pipe
Its main advantages are:high strength, good toughness, bearing stress, impact resistance and rigor, good plasticity, ease of welding and thermal processing, thin wall thickness, to save metal. But its poor corrosion resistance, need to have proper anti-corrosion measures. Steel pipe used in gas engineering are generally made of high quality low carbon steel (Q235) or low-alloy steel (16Mn).
