12 sch 10 stainless steel pipe dimensions

Across multiple industries, from industrial food production to petrochemicals, utilization of stainless-steel piping is widespread. In this ubiquity, stainless steel pipe’s dimensions exist in various forms. Among the most popular are:

Measuring only 0.5mm thick, Schedule 10 stainless steel pipe is the lightest among these metal tubes. It is particularly ideal for applications within the food and beverage, petrochemical, and chemical industries.

– Schedule 40: As compared to schedule 10 with its wall thickness of 1.6mm, this type of pipe possesses an even more robust composition. It is frequently utilised in various construction and industrial projects.

– High Pressure Excellence: Schedule 80 is renowned for withstanding intense pressure thanks to its formidable wall thickness of 2.3mm. This thicker variation of stainless steel pipe is often put through the wringer in high-pressure settings.

Selection of a stainless steel pipe is of paramount significance – dependent upon the intentions for use and the domain of deployment. On one hand, schedule 10 pipe is not suitable for heavy-duty operations – prone to succumbing to immense pressure. Conversely, schedule 80 pipe is unsuitable for food or liquid processing due to its increased thickness – potentially resulting in product pollution.

Stainless steel pipes’ dimensions are indicated by two distinguishing factors: nominal pipe size (NPS) and schedule. The former signifies the outer diameter of the pipe, while the latter determines the wall thickness. As an example, pipes of a schedule 10 have a diameter of 10.3 mm and a wall that is 0.5 mm in thickness; whereas pipes with a schedule 40 feature an outside diameter of 10.3 mm along with walls that have a thickness of 1.6 mm.

Selecting stainless steel piping necessitates attention to the purpose for which it is intended, as well as the circumstances of its use. For instance, 10 schedule piping ought not be used in situations needing high pressure for it may fracture. On the other hand, 80 schedule pipe is too cumbersome for food and beverage processing due to potential product contamination.
