Different Grades of Carbon Steel Pipe

There are many different grades when talking about carbon steel pipe.  Being knowledgeable about different grades of steel pipe is very important when bidding a job or trying to land a job for your company.  Let's say your company is bidding a piling job, it would not be in your best interest to quote a steel pipe grade that was more costly to purchase.  If you know the different grades of carbon steel pipe before going into a bid, you give your company a better chance at landing the job.  Here at Alpha Pipe, we mostly deal in structural grades of pipe.  Different grades of pipe have different yield and tensile strengths and are produced for different applications. Below, I will go over some of the grades that Alpha Pipe stocks on a regular basis. 

Piling grades - ASTM A252 GR2, ASTM A252 GR3, and ASTM A500 GRB & GRC.  All of these grades come in straight seam and spiral weld.  Each meets a different strength that some jobs require. 

Line pipe grades - X42, X52, X60, and X70.  These also can come in straight seam or spiral weld.  A lot of time, we can find this pipe and put it into stock for great deals.  We will substitute these grades for anything structural because it usually meets or exceeds the strength that our customer is looking for. 

Casing grades - J55, N80, and P110.  These grades are normally used for down hole applications.  We will keep some of this type of pipe in stock for our smaller drillers and pile drivers.

We carry other grades of steel pipe as well, but these are some that we use the most.  If you are needing a quote for a job, Alpha Pipe would love to try and save you money.  Call us at (800) 860-0599 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
