Chromium carbide overlay pipe is a seamless steel base pipe that has been welded with an interior chromium carbide overlay. The welding method that’s typically used is something called an open-arc process. Adding carbide to the interior of pipes creates ruggedness and durability that allow for the products to be used in the harshest of conditions.
This style of ultra-rugged piping can be sourced for a number of industrial uses. However, it’s always important to look for signs of craftsman and product integrity when sourcing chromium carbide pipes. Hand welding during the production cycle for a piping product is often a sign of quality.
Chromium carbide overlay pipe is uniquely created for applications where severe abrasive wear, impact and heat are factors. Few forms of piping can stand up to the wear and tear that this product can endure. The fact that carbide overlay is designed to stand up against such extreme wear and tear makes it ideal for use with slurry pumps, suction lines, air ducts, carbon injection, troughs, chutes, pumps dredging and other intense applications. The big benefit to carbide piping is that it is actually installed nearly as easily as mild piping for simpler applications. That means that you’re getting extreme durability without necessarily adding installation costs and hassles.
This type of piping is typically spliced together by the manufacturer or supplier based on recommended lengths for common uses and applications. Piping may also be spliced based on the specifications of the buyer.
Composition can vary by product and manufacturer. Welding parameters, the cooling process used and the number of layers embedded are all factors that will impact product performance. This is precisely why supplier-specific product details must be looked at closely when sourcing chromium carbide pipes for a project.
Common thickness of steel tube inner wall surfacing layer: 3-6MM.
The thickness of the outer wall surfacing layer can be customized according to customer requirements.
