Process Pipe (pipe and tube)

Tubular products are termed ‘tube’ or ‘pipe’. Tube is customarily specified by its outside diameter and wall thickness, expressed either in BWG (Birmingham wire gage) or in thousandths of an inch. Pipe is customarily identified by ‘nominal pipe size’, with wall thickness define by ‘schedule number’, ‘API designation’, or ‘weight’. Non-standard pipeis specified by nominal size with wall thickness stated.

The principal uses for the tube are in heat exchangers, instrument lines, and small interconnections on equipment such as compressors, boilers and refrigerators.
