Schedule 80 steel Pipe Chart & Specification

erw carbon steel pipe

Schedule 80 steel pipe are known for their robustness and durability, and play a vital role in a wide range of industries.

The designation “Schedule” refers to the wall thickness, and in the case of Schedule 80.Let’s dive deeper into the Schedule 80 steel  pipe tables and specifications to better understand their characteristics and applications.

Schedule 80 Pipe Main Dimensions&Specifications

Schedule 80 steel pipe specifications include materials/sizesand testing standards.

Common materials include PVC, CPVC, and metal alloys. Size variations follow nominal pipe sizes (NPS), ranging from 1/8 inch to 36 inches. rigorous testing ensures compliance with industry standards to guarantee optimal performance. 

Schedule 80 steel pipes are commonly available in standard pipe sizes. Rigorous testing ensures compliance with industry standards and guarantees optimum performance.

Schedule 80 steel pipes are commonly available in standard lengths, such as 21 feet or 6.4 meters. Custom lengths may be available based on project requirements.

SCH 80 Pipe Application Scenarios:

Schedule 80 steel pipe is versatile, robust and suitable for a wide range of industries. In particular, Sch 80 steel pipe is ideal for use in chemical processing plants, the oil and gas industry, including transportation in harsh environments.

In the construction industry, too, Sch 80 is often found in industrial processes, steam systems, and construction projects with special load-bearing requirements that require robust construction due to its thicker wall and ability to withstand higher pressures.

In chemical processing, schedule 80 steel pipe corrosion-resistant and can withstand harsh chemicals.

Steam Systems, Schedule 80 steel tubing, is known for its strength and is often chosen for steam systems that require the highest level of ruggedness.


Schedule 40 vs Schedule 80 Steel Pipes

Steel pipe is an important part of all industries, how to choose steel pipe, plays a vital role in the whole project. 

Schedule 80 and Schedule 40 are two of the more common steel pipes, what is the difference between these two, today we will categorize and explore.

Schedule 80 Wall Thickness

Schedule 80 steel pipe is known for its sturdy construction with thicker walls for greater strength and durability. This design is especially beneficial in applications where the pipe is subjected to higher pressures and conveys corrosive substances. 

While Sch 40 sturdiness cannot be compared to Sch 80, Sch 40 pipe can find its place in applications where strength and pressure resistance are moderately required. Common applications include residential plumbing, general water distribution, and projects where working pressures are within the limitations of Schedule 40 pipe specifications, all of which can be made more cost-effective by using Schedule 40 steel pipe.

Schedule 80 Steel Pipe Installation

Schedule 80 piping presents a number of installation challenges due to its heavier weight and thicker walls. 

The solid construction of Schedule 80 steel pipe, while beneficial in terms of durability and compression resistance, requires more labor and effort during installation. The added weight requires careful handling and specialized equipment to ensure precise placement.

 On the other hand, Schedule 40 steel piping is much simpler to install. Because of its relatively light weight and thin wall, Schedule 40 pipe is easier to handle and requires less labor and equipment.

All in all, Schedule 80 steel pipe has made him very popular in the chemical/oil and gas transportation/construction field with his superior wall thickness and sturdiness. To watch the TUSPIPE production process, click to watch our video.
