“This is something we’ve been working on for the past two years, with the support of the pipe industry and our partners,” Onikke told Ars Technic.
“We have a great pipeline of products to offer.”
A252 steel pipes are designed to meet the strictest of ISO 10223 requirements, and are manufactured in Japan, France, China and Taiwan.
“It’s designed to provide the most rigidity possible, without compromising on durability,” Onigko said.
“A252 pipes are made from 304 stainless steel with a hardness of .859.
A252 is considered the gold standard of steel pipe for the welding industry, and is a key component for most of the major steel producers in the US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and other parts of the world.”
A 252 steel pipe has a “high rigidity” meaning that the weld won’t flex, and can be bent or twisted easily.
A 252 is a “good choice” for those who want to weld on a longer weld, Onikkop said.
Onikki also pointed to “the most advanced welding technology in the world,” which allows pipe welders to create welds that are “a little bit more rigid.”
A steel pipe can be welded with up to 3,000 pounds of force per square inch, on average, which can make it a “great candidate for high-pressure applications,” Onikkoke said.
“When you have welded a high-strength pipe on a pipe, it’s a good way to get a weld that’s more robust and to have that weld be able to hold more pressure,” he said.
While the pipe was not designed for use in steelmaking, the manufacturer said it was “not an industry-standard” pipe and that it had tested “every single component in the pipeline, including the pipe itself.”
“A252 is made to the highest quality standards for the world’s leading pipe manufacturers and is made in China,” Onika said.
