ASTM A106 Seamless Pipe

ASTM A106 Grade B Pipe (A106M - 18) is a Standard Specification for Seamless Carbon Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service. ASTM A106 pipe is always produced by the seamless method and can be bent, coiled and flanged. In sizes less than 2" is it usually produced as a cold drawn product. 2" and up are usually hot finished. SA106 pipe is intended for use in high temperature applications. General characteristics steel seamless pipe grade A106 / A106M.- is a steel for high temperature service, it is a steel that enables bending, welding and flanged among other operations. A106 Grade B or P265GH is a weldable pressure vessel and boiler steel grade pipe used by the world's industrial fabricators.

Steel Tubes India is a Govt recognised exporter of a wide range of ASTM A106 Welded Pipe, ASTM A106 Spiral welded pipe, ASTM A106 welded steel pipe, ASTM A106 continuous welded pipe, ASTM A106 seam welded pipe, ASTM A106 furnace welded pipe, ASTM A106 double welded pipe and ASTM A106 longitudinal welded pipes in India. These ASTM A106 Grade B Carbon Steel Welded Pipe are typically more cost effective than ASTM A106 seamless pipe. SA106 Welded pipes are usually more readily available than SA106 seamless pipe. The longer lead time required for ASTM A106 Gr.B Seamless Pipe can not only make timing problematic, but it also allows more time for the price of the materials to fluctuate.

ASTM A106 Grade B specification covers carbon steel pipe for high-temperature service. These pipes are suitable for welding, bending, flanging, and similar forming operations. Mechanical testing of the specimens shall include tensile, bending, flattening, hydrostatic and nondestructive electric tests. Specimens undergoing bending tests shall consist of sections cut from a pipe. For flattening tests, the specimens shall be smooth on the ends and burr-free, except when made on crop ends. All tests shall be performed in room temperature. If any test specimen shows flaws it can be discarded and substituted for another test specimen. Before testing, if a specimen has scribe scratches, a retest shall be allowed. A retest shall also be allowed if a specimen breaks in an inside or outside surface flaw.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers seamless carbon steel pipe for high-temperature service (Note 1) in NPS 1/8 to NPS 48 [DN 6 to DN 1200] (Note 2) inclusive, with nominal (average) wall thickness as given in ASME B 36.10M. It shall be permissible to furnish pipe having other dimensions provided such pipe complies with all other requirements of this specification. Pipe ordered under this specification shall be suitable for bending, flanging, and similar forming operations, and for welding. When the steel is to be welded, it is presupposed that a welding procedure suitable to the grade of steel and intended use or service will be utilized.

  • NOTE 1: It is suggested, consideration be given to possible graphitization.
  • NOTE 2: The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) [DN (diameter nominal)] has been substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as “nominal diameter,” “size,” and “nominal size.”

What is A106 Pipes

A106 Pipe is the black carbon steel pipe (killed carbon steel pipe) for high-temperature and high-pressure service. These A106 Seamless Pipes are available in three grades A, B, and C of varying strength. ASTM/ASME A-106/SA-106 grade seamless pipes is one of our most widely used grade of carbon steel and is readily available ex-stock for all standard thicknesses up to SCH160. NPS 1-1/2 and under may be either hot finished or cold drawn. NPS 2 and larger shall be hot finished unless otherwise specified. Surface finish standards are outlined in the specification. ASTM A106 Grades A and ASTM A106 B are obtainable in most sizes and schedule numbers, SA106 Grade B permits higher carbon and manganese contents than Grade A. The A106 Grade B Pipe supplied by ASTM Seamless Pipes has a maximum carbon content of 0.23%.

ASTM A106 killed carbon steel

If no free Oxygen is found in the steel pipe then its called "Killed Carbon Steel". Grade A106 Pipes must be produced with killed steel used for for High-Temperature Service. Semi-Killed Carbon Steel means that these pipes are Partially deoxidized and some free Oxygen is still found in the steel. Properties of semi-killed steel in between fully killed and rimmed steel.

ASTM A53 grade a vs b

A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe – (1) Scope

ASTM A53 is Standard Specification for Pipe, Steel, Black and Hot-Dipped, Zinc-Coated, Welded and Seamless.
ASTM A106 is Standard Specification for Seamless Carbon Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service.

A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe – (2) Applied Type of Pipe

A 53 can be welded seam or seamless depending on how it is specificed for purchase. It is a general steel pipe spec and covers galvanized pipe as well as black pipe.
A106 is a similar pipe in chemical composition but is intened for high temperature service (up to 750 Degs F). It is a seamless pipe.
At least in the US, there is usually A53 for welded pipe while A106 is seamless. If you ask for A53 in the US they will quote A106 as an alternate.

A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe – (3) Chemical Composition

For example when we compare between A106-B and A53-B seamless from chemical composition point of view, we find that :
1. A106-B contains silicon, min. 0.10% where A53-B has zero%, and silicon is the important element for improving the heat resistance criteria.
2. A106-B contains manganese 0.29-1.06%, where A53-B 1.2%.
3. A106-B contains low sulfur and phosphorus, max. 0.035% where A53-B contains 0.05 and 0.045% respectively.

Other difference for A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe

Because they have different scope and specify different type of pipe, then the manufacturing process and required quality control test and inspection will be different to each other.
