The ASTM A335 P12 Pipe is manufactured from ASTM A335 material of P12 grade. The material is known for its high formability like bending, flanging, and similar types of forming operations. It is also ideal for fusion welding. The specification is basically a chrome-moly alloy steel that is used for different types of high temperature services. The SA335 P12 grade is one of the most commonly used ones in various industries such as power and also petrochemical plants. The P5 and P9 grades are however used in various refineries.
The P12 Seamless Pipes is more widely used for critical applications than the welded pipes, even though their prices are higher. This is because the seamless pipes have no welding joints and hence there are no weak points in the pipes that are prone to leakage. However, the welded ASTM A335 Gr P12 pipes can be given desired length without much hassles; hence the choice of the right type of pipes depends on the client’s requirements.
As mentioned earlier, the A335 P12 material has chromium and molybdenum in its chemical composition, and it is because of that they have their unique properties. The molybdenum in A335 Gr P12 material helps to enhance its strength, elastic limits, wear resistance, hardenability, and impact quality. It also increases its resistance to softness, grain growth, and makes the P12 Pipes less susceptible to embrittlement. The molybdenum also improves its high temperature creep strength, corrosion resisting power, and it helps to inhibit pitting.
Similarly, the chromium present in the SA 335 P12 material helps to increase its resistance to oxidation, even at elevated temperatures. The element also enhances the material’s tensile strength, yield strength, and hardness at room temperatures. The overall composition of the A335 P12 Pipes is such that they can ideally be used in power plants, petrochemical plants, refineries, and oil field services. They are perfect for applications where fluids and gasses are transported from one place to another in a high temperature and pressure environment.
