Pipe

Stainless Steel pipe is commonly used to transport fluids and gases.

It is produced in different sizes and has many uses such as in wastewater systems, food & beverage facilities, chemical processing, oil and gas  processing, and more.

Stainless steel pipe is non-hygienic as it is hot rolled, which means it is heated up and then rolled through a mill into shape. This leaves it with a rougher surface, which is often dull and referred to as a mill finish. Unlike tube, pipe is always round. 

You can tell the difference between pipe and tube due to the wall thickness and surface finish. Pipe is thicker and has a rougher finish than tube.

We stock stainless steel pipe in both Schedule 10 and Schedule 40. The schedule determines the wall thickness of the pipe. Schedule 10 has a thinner wall thickness than Schedule 40, and is typically used in low-pressure applications while Schedule 40 is used in high-pressure applications. 

Pipe is measured by Nominal Bore (NB) and Schedule. The term NB (Nominal Bore) is often used interchangeably with NPS (Nominal Pipe Size). ‘Nominal’ is a non-dimensional number that identifies the internal diameter. The wall thickness of pipe is determined by the schedule.

We stock pipe in Schedule 10 from ½” to 16”, and in Schedule 40 from ½” to 12”. We also stock a full range of pipe fittings, both butt weld and socket weld, to suit any pipe run.

RapidPress Deburrer Tool | RapidPress Rundown

The RapidPress Deburrer Tool is designed for use on RapidPress tube from 15-54mm but can also be used on other stainless tubes or pipes. Watch Patrick discuss what the deburrer tool is and how to use it.

RapidPress Rotary Tube Cutter | RapidPress Rundown

The RapidPress rotary tube cutter is our preferred method of cutting tubes from 15mm – 76mm as it leaves a burr free edge on the external of the tube. Watch Patrick discuss how to use this tool.

RapidPress Expansion Bellows | RapidPress Rundown

When pipelines are heated or cooled it can cause them to expand or contract in length. If this is not compensated for it can put extreme pressure on welds or pressed joints resulting in failure. Watch Patrick discuss our RapidPress Expansion Bellows.
