    Welded Pipe manufacturing types

    There are 3 welding types: ERW (Electric Resistance  Welding), LSAW (Longitudinally Submerged Arc Welding), and SSAW (Spirally  Submerged Arc Welding) welding types.

    ERW pipe is a type of Resistance pipe stands apart from  welded pipe and DC welded pipe in two different manners as listed below. Based  on the welding frequency, the IF welding for low frequency and the ultra-IF  welding for high frequency. In case of thin-walled pipe, there is a high frequency weld used typically in case of contact welding and induction welding. When the usage is for a small-diameter pipe, they make use of DC welding. There is a high frequency welding process used to manufacture pipes that are  comprehensive and is of ERW type. For oil and gas storage, the best recommended type is ERW longitudinal, owing to its quality, ease of transport and cost.

    Both LSAW pipe and SSAW pipe are SAW pipe (Submerged Arc  Welding Steel Pipe), is manufactured by making use of a submerged arc soldering process for preparing the steel and it results in high density pipe. Owing to  the flux layer, there is no instant heat loss and it gets concentrated near the  weld. It results in high quality, highly efficient arc and smoke, which finds  intensive usage in pressure vessels, pipe manufacturing, beams, fluids, steel works etc. SAW pipe find its main usage in LSAW pipe, which is Longitudinally Submerged Arc Welding pipe.

    Key differences between SAW (LSAW, SSAW) and ERW pipe

    As above manufacturing processes we can see SAW (LSAW,  SSAW) and ERW pipes are entirely different right from formation, welding etc. And hence, the performance of both the pipes differ in the following aspects:
    1. The surface quality of ERW pipes are better when  compared to SAW (LSAW, SSAW) pipes, as they are smooth and have a better finish. In most of the SAW pipes, it is mainly about the weld reinforcement internally and externally.

    2. The defects found in ERW pipes are lesser than SAW pipes. As there is a solvent deposit in SAW pipes, it results in more defects  apart from the defects in the volume. The defects found in ERW pipes are only confined to wire-line and straight welds and it can be inspected easily. The  defects can be noticed easily and the ultrasonic reflection on the surface  makes it easier to detect.

    3. The residual stress ratio in ERW is lower than SAW pipes. As ERW pipe deformation happens more in ERW followed by a sizing of flat  oval, it results in elliptical vertical changes and necking, thereby making the stress smaller. The displacement of ERW pipes was smaller when compared along  the axial and transverse incisions for comparison with SAW pipes built using the same material and it was also easy to detect.

    4. Although the overall performance of both ERW and SAW pipes are the same, once the pipes have defect, the steel scrap and welding can be done on ERW, while it is not the same in case of SAW, which would result in cracking or corrosion, making the ERW more durable.

    Applications of the API 5L welded line pipe

    For Petroleum and natural gas industries, steel pipe for  pipeline transportation systems.

    Octal supplied the pipe complied to the international standard API 5L, which specified requirements for the manufacture of two product specifications levels  (PSL1 and PSL2) of  welded line pipe for use in pipeline transportation systems in the oil and gas  industries.
