How to use mild steel pipe properly in applications

As a rule, steel recipes have a weight proportion of carbon in the 0.2% to 2.1% range. To enhance other properties of the base iron, mixtures may also include chromium, manganese, or Tungsten. Unlike high-carbon steel pipe, mild steel pipe has carbon contents of less than 0.18%, so this type of pipe is easily welded while some types of high-carbon steel pipe, such as stainless steel pipe, which requires special techniques in order to properly weld the material.

Today, a variety of mild steel pipes have been used for most of the pipelines in the world, for it is not only be easily welded into place flexibly but also can somewhat avoid cracking and breaking under pressure. However, mild steel pipe has poor corrosion-resistance, and it must be painted or otherwise protected and sealed in order to prevent rust from damaging it. Generally, black steel pipe is coated with other metals such as copper, to protect itself from corrosion. In addition, mild steel pipes are also used for structural purpose and mechanical & general engineering purpose in large construction projects around the world. In some specific cases, we have to cut mild steel pipe in order to cater to an appropriate custom fit for your applications. There are different methods and ways of cutting pipe, and each depends on what types of pipe you are cutting. For example, how to cut mild steel pipe generally depending on the metal pipe’s outer diameter as well as its wall thickness. Band saw cutting is a fully automatic process and the most common method for cutting rod, bar, pipe, and tubing. This process is excellent for large-volume cutting. Some band saws can handle large product bundles. Band saw cutting is a viable method for cutting a variety of steel pipe shapes, such as square steel pipe, rectangle pipe, channels, I beams, and extrusions.

On the other hand, mild steel pipe is prone to corrosion over time like other types of metal products in application. In that regard, how to protect your mild steel pipe from corrosion is very important in applications. For example, cold rolled steel pipe adopts protective paint systems such as primer, undercoat(s) and finish coats. Each coating ‘layer’ in any protective system has a specific function, and the different types are applied in a particular sequence of primer followed by intermediate/build coats in the shop, and finally the finish or top coat either in the shop or on site.
