In this day and age, there are many options for steel pipes, such as galvanized pipe, ERW Steel pipes, DOM tubing, and much more. What makes each one unique or stand out from the crowd? The galvanized pipe has many features that make it appealing to many industries.
The process of galvanizing is the submersion of a steel or iron pipe in a molten zinc bath. Before it is dipped in zinc, the steel tube needs to be properly cleaned. The thickness of the coat can be adjusted as needed.
Cost is on everyone’s mind, and to find a good product with a low cost is hard to do. That is why galvanized tubes are high on everyone’s list. Galvanizing a pipe usually cost much less than other protective methods. In addition, galvanizing is much less labor intensive, which in turn, makes the cost lower. Along with the cost, longevity is another added bonus of galvanizing. A properly galvanized tube can last decades.
The coating of the pipes makes it much more tough and durable than other types. Very seldom will you see damage from service or transport from these pipes. Naturally, because of the toughness and long life, a lot less maintenance is needed to maintain galvanized pipes. Also, inspection of the pipes is much easier, they can be examined by eye not really needing any special tools.
Finally, another advantage is assembly. Galvanized steel pipe is ready to use right from the manufacturer. No need to coat or paint, just install and you are good.
