What is SAWL large diameter steel pipe?
Large diameter steel pipes are used with steel plate materials and welding supplies that fully meet the requirements of product specifications. Using the 3-RollBending method to round the tube, welding by modern submerged arc welding (SAWL welding) will then be heated into a finished tube. SAWL pipe has a diameter of 16 – 60 “, a thickness of 6.4 – 35mm, a maximum length of 12.2m and meets the latest API 5L International standard.
Although SAWL pipe has a better quality than other steel pipes, the price is high, causing users to wonder and choose other types of pipes like ERW which are cheaper.
