Steel pipes are long, hollow tubes that are can be used for a variety of purposes. They are produced by two distinct methods, which result in either a welded or seamless pipe.
Steel pipes are extremely strong, and can be used underground for transporting water and gas throughout cities and towns as well as in construction to protect electrical wires. Although undeniably strong and durable, steel pipes can also be lightweight which makes them ideal for use in smaller commercial products such as bicycles, cars, refrigeration units, heating and plumbing systems, flagpoles and street lamps.
Cattle rail is a tubular rail section geared for applications involving livestock – as an example for fencing-in cattle, horses, sheep, etc. Though the Cattle rail section is used predominantly in livestock applications, it can also be used in a range of other end-uses.
Yard Rail is a smaller section than Cattle Rail and has an oval appearance (curved edges and flat sides), this reduces bruising injuries on livestock in pen-type situations and is preferred by many livestock owners.
ERW pipe is used in structural applications mainly for columns, bollards, bore casing, and water, oil and gas industry. The size range is from 114mm OD to 610mm OD and is available in stock lengths of 12m as standard.
Our commercial pipe is manufactured to a variety of specifications, coatings and end finishes. Please refer to the Resources and Tools for a list of all materials available.
Seamless pipe to ASTM A106B and sourced from mills with an international reputation as quality manufacturers, meeting our supplier accreditation requirements. The manufacturers are accredited by ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials). Full certification is available.
Red Painted Pipe – optimally designed for fire protection services. Red Painted Pipe is ideal for use in fire protection reticulation systems and is easy to install. It is designed for reduced on-site labour, being supplied painted red.
Red Painted Pipe is made from a steel with increased mechanical properties and is available with the option of roll grooved ends and may be joined by means of a Victaulic fitting and is compatible with most standard welded pipe fittings.
Pipe products satisfy Standards for low pressure reticulation / piping, general mechanical and structural applications. For a specific outside diametre these sections have a larger wall thickness than CHS in the Structural Products range. However, the Pipe product range is of a lower strength grade to Structural CHS. Pipe products are versatile and easy to use for general, mechanical, low pressure piping and structural applications.
Standardised diameters and thicknesses for the Pipe product range permit industry accepted connections to be readily used in fluid conveyancing applications. The larger wall thickness of Pipe products also helps to provide extended service life in heavy fluid and wear applications such as that encountered in mining operations, slurry and concrete pumping. Coupled with a galvanized coating, the large wall thickness can greatly assist in improving the Pipe’s corrosion resistance in some water reticulation applications.Due to the larger cross-sectional areas available for Pipe products, these sections are also commonly used in structural applications.
The importance of scaffolding members and systems cannot be understated. These systems are an integral part of the fabrication, construction and maintenance processes commonly used in many industries. The key performance requirements of these sections are that there should be tight control of cross-section, internal weld bead profile and member dimensions (for telescoping elements). They should also be robust and durable for not only overloads encountered during their working life but also from mishandling elements used in temporary or permanent falsework applications. Steel Tube Mills Scaffolding Tube satisfies all these traits and the requirements of the relevant scaffolding tube Standard
Water being a precious commodity in most parts of Australia may, in many situations, be sourced from bore wells. Extracting the water and bringing it to the surface requires a protective covering or sleeve around the water pipe. The role of bore casing is to provide that protective covering. Once in the ground the bore casing pipe must provide many years of reliable service.
