JIS Seamless Pipes

JIS seamless pipes are steel pipe that have been created by JIS and meets certain performance requirements.



Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) developed by the organization apply to a wide variety of industrial services and technologies such as automobiles, metallurgy, ships and medical equipment

The method for making cold-drawn seamless pipes involves taking a round “billet” or bar of steel and boring it in the center, turning it, cutting it, heating it to make it more pliable, then “drawing” it (extruding or pulling it) to make it a longer and thinner tube.

Japanese Industrial Standards for steel

Japanese Industrial Standards specifies the standards used for industrial activities in Japan. The standardization process is coordinated by Japanese Industrial Standards Committee and published through Japanese Standards Association.

The Industrial Standardization Law was revised in 2004 and the JIS mark product certification system was changed. Standards are named like “JIS X 0208:1997″, where X denotes area division, followed by four digits (or five digits for some of the standards corresponding ISO standards) and the revision release year.

MTC IN EN 10204.3

EN 10204:2004 is for metallic products-and this norm tell us things about Types of inspection documents. There are no material standards.

Mostly material is defined with its chemical composition and mechanical properties in a public standars like ISO, EN, JIS, ASTM etc.

What is JIS?

Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) specifies the standards used for industrial activities in Japan. The standardization process is coordinated by Japanese Industrial Standards Committee and published through Japanese Standards Association.

In the Meiji era, private enterprises were responsible for making standards. However, the Japanese government did have standards and specification documents for procurement purposes for certain articles, such as munitions. These were summarized to form an official standard old JES in 1921. During World War II, simplified standards were established to increase matériel output. The Industrial Standardization Law was enacted in 1949, which forms the legal foundations for the present Japanese Industrial Standards.

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.
