Low Carbon Steel Contents and Use
Low carbon steel is composed of 0.04 – 0.30 percent carbon. Welders and piping experts prefer low carbon steel for things like boiler plates, wire products and seamless tubing and piping uses. Auto manufacturers typically prefer low carbon steel for vehicle body panels. If the low temperature carbon steel piping is seamless, it can be installed when processing or manufacture piping requires low temperatures to avoid negative impact on this type of piping. One example of use of low temperature carbon steel pipe would be in processes where refrigerants are required to be 50° F. If this is the case, choose ASTM A333 Grade 6 Low Temp Seamless Carbon Steel for pipes transporting refrigerated process materials through a system. This is a simple guide to new installations of low carbon steel pipes with chemical components that include:
