ASTM A179 (ASME SA179) pipes and its usage

ASTM A179 seamless tubes are widely used in industries such as petroleum, chemical, medical, food, light industry, machinery, instrument, include industrial pipeline and mechanical structure parts, etc.

What is a heat exchanger used for?

A heat exchanger is a device designed to efficiently transfer or "exchange" heat from one matter to another. When a fluid is used to transfer heat, the fluid could be a liquid, such as water or oil, or could be moving air. The most well known type of heat exchanger is a car radiator.

ASTM A179 / A179M - 90a(2012) Standard Specification for Seamless Cold-Drawn Low-Carbon Steel Heat-Exchanger and Condenser Tubes

There are probably hundreds of different methods for packing a abrasion resistant pipe and Elbows, and most of them have merit, but there are two principles that are vital for any method to work prevent rusting and Sea transportation security.

Description Features Specifications Chemical Composition SA-450/SA-450M

ASTM A179 Tubes shall be made by the seamless process and shall be cold drawn. Heat and product analysis shall be performed wherein steel materials shall conform to required chemical compositions of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur. The steel materials shall also undergo hardness test, flattening test, flaring test, flange test, and hydrostatic test.

Because of ASTM A179 grade’s temperature withstanding capabilities, it is applied to steel pipe of tubular heat exchanger, condensers and similar heat transfer equipment. Our ASTM A179 seamless tubes are used in sugar mills & distilleries, pumps and petrochemicals, cement and construction industries and steel plants. Sunny Steel can supply ASTM A179 steel tube from stock or from reputed steel mills. We also offer steel fabrication service where steel plates can go through processings like cutting, welding, bending, machining, pre-coating, pre-lined, beveling, or as you require.

This specification covers minimum-wall thickness, seamless cold-drawn low-carbon steel tubes for tubular heat exchangers, condensers, and similar heat transfer apparatus. Tubes shall be made by the seamless process and shall be cold drawn. Heat and product analysis shall be performed wherein steel materials shall conform to required chemical compositions of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, and sulfur. The steel materials shall also undergo hardness test, flattening test, flaring test, flange test, and hydrostatic test.

Features:

ASTMA179/ASME SA179 standard is applicable for steel pipes together with outside diameter of 1/8in-3in. (32 mm to 76.2 mm). Our rolling technology has reached the international advanced spot. JST is able to manufacture cold drawn seamless steel tubes with uniform wall depth. Their tolerance is relatively smaller standard your own.

When seamless carbon steel pipes are during the last cold drawing procedure, they will enter micro oxidization and non-oxidation heat treatment furnace for thermal treatment (Temperature is 1200℉ (650℃) if not more.). This makes the surface of cold drawn seamless steel tubes match the no oxide scale standards, and guarantees smooth surface and stable performance.

JST adopts professional hardness testing equipment to find out the hardness of seamless carbon steel pipes. The Rockwell hardness value not able to exceed 72 HRB.

Top rated program customers' requirements, we can analyze the cold drawn seamless steel tube advertise its chemical composition meet standards. We choose one from 250 pipes or select one in a furnace to investigate. If the product analysis fails, then choose another two seamless carbon steel pipes. All elements of two steel pipes tend to be in accordance with standards, and then these pipes can be delivered.

Tech & Service of Seamless pipe

Seamless pipes are extensively applied for the nuclear device, gas, petrochemical, ship building and boiler industries. Seamless pipes dominates 65% of market share in Chinese boiler industry.

How to make seamless pipe(seamless pipe process)?
Hot Piercing Workshop
Piercing process
The cross roll piercing and pilger rolling process in the size range from approx. 250 to 660 mm outside diameter.
Precision cold drawn steel tube production process
Pipe weld cracks
often follow different mechanisms can be divided into two types of thermal cracking and cold cracking.
How to calculate a steel pipe and tube theoretic weight
Calculate a steel pipe?
Pipe fittings are necessary to join together pipes, or to change the direction of an existing pipe.
Pipe beveling
Pipe beveling is the process where an angle is formed between the edge of the end of a pipe or tube and a plane perpendicular to the surface.
Steel pipe cutting machine
Pipe cutting
Cutting tools have a grinding wheel piece cutting machine (also known as toothless saw), hand saw, cutter and other hand tools.
How to calculate a steel pipe and tube theoretic weight
Packing the steel pipes
There are probably hundreds of different methods for packing a pipe, and most of them have merit, but there are two principles that are vital for any method.
Condition on delivery:

It refers to the state of final plastic deformation or final heat treatment of the delivered product. The hot-rolled or cold drawn (rolled) state or manufacturing state generally delivered without heat treatment; the heat-treated state after heat treatment delivery, or the normalizing, tempering, solid solution, annealing according to the type of heat treatment status.

Delivery status Abbreviation Description

Cold-finished/hard
(cold-finished as-drawn)

BK No heat treatment after the last cold-forming process. The tubes therefore have only low deformability.
Cold-finished/soft
(lightly cold-worked)
BKW After the last heat treatment there is a light finishing pass (cold drawing) With proper subsequent processing, the tube can be cold-formed (e.g. bent, expanded) within certain limits.
Annealed GBK After the final cold-forming process the tubes are annealed in a controlled atmosphere or under vacuum.
Normalized NBK The tubes are annealed above the upper transformation point in a controlled atmosphere or under vacuum.

Delivery according to actual weight or delivery according to theoretical weight

  • Actual weight - at the time of delivery, the weight of its product is delivered according to the weighing (weighing) weight;
  • Theoretical weight - The weight of the product at the time of delivery is calculated from the nominal size of the steel.
