Carbon steel pipe density

Density is calculated by dividing the mass by the volume. The density of carbon steel is approximately 7.85 g/cm3 (0.284 lb/in3).

Steel is much denser than water but shaped appropriately, the density may be reduced (by adding air spaces), creating a steel ship that floats. Likewise a life jacket reduces the overall density of the person wearing it, enabling him to float much easier.

There is not one value for density that is the same for all types of steel. Different steels are different alloys, although I wouldn't have thought the values would vary greatly since all are largely steel.



Seamless pipe Specification, standard and identification

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.
