Black Galvanized Iron Pipe
Selection of pipe types is often based on the needs and objectives of the installation. Various types and brands available on the market depend on the function, location and material. One type of pipe that is popularly used for industry is galvanized steel pipes. Unlike PVC pipes, galvanized steel pipes have more advantages and are considered more durable.
Galvanized steel pipes are widely used as distribution or distribution pipes. In this modern era, galvanized pipe types are often used as outdoor applications, especially for handrails, electric poles, or water lines. Please note that the galvanized pipe is not suitable for channeling gas.
In addition to the above functions, here are some of the uses of galvanized steel pipe applications in various industries:
Water in the House or Other Buildings, Thanks to the zinc layer in the tube, using a galvanized steel pipe for the water channel will not make it rust fast. Zinc is a metal element that is corrosion resistant, making it suitable for this type of application. However, its use is not recommended for hot or gas channels, because it can cause the zinc layer to peel and make the pipes clogged.
The use of galvanized steel pipes for electrical installations is increasingly popular, because it can minimize disruption to electrical conductors. In addition, the installation and dismantling process can be done more easily. Preferably, electrical installation is carried out on the ground.
Construction on Housing
If you think galvanized pipes are only suitable for distribution facilities, think again. Currently there are many housing construction sectors that use galvanized pipes as a house fence or handrails on stairs. This use is in great demand by the public due to the galvanic properties that are rust resistant and last longer. Fences that are installed using galvanized pipes tend to be easy in maintenance. If damage occurs, you can easily find and replace it.
In addition to the construction industry, galvanized steel pipes are also used in the automotive industry. Often, this type of pipe is used in the manufacture of exhaust and vehicle frames. Galvanized pipe installation for automotive can be done by applying glue to the end of the pipe thread, and connecting it to the welding method.
In the manufacture of galvanized steel pipes, low carbon steel is required with a galvanized coating containing various types of elements in it. The carbon element contained in this pipe is 0.091%, quite low when compared to the element zinc (Zn) of 99.7%. The process requires steel material which is placed in a molten zinc container - like dipping into a liquid - called a galvanization process. In addition to preventing corrosion, a layer of zinc on the outside of the pipe can also
