Carbon Steel Pipes Best for Gas Transportation, says FT Pipeline Systems Monday 28 November 2011 PDF Print FT Pipeline Systems, leading pipe suppliers for the UK construction industry, is advising those looking to construct a gas pipe network to use carbon steel pipes to secure a pipeline’s longevity. The use of carbon steel pipes ensures a pipeline will remain secure during the gas transportation process, due to gas needing to be transferred in a highly pressurised state to ensure its movement through the pipe system. Due to this, it is important to use the correct pipe materials that are able to withstand the high pressures. Carbon steel pipes are also suited to gas transportation as they are ideal for any ground conditions, whether contaminated or rocky. Pipeline maintenance can often be an expensive task, so it is crucial to use the most durable materials possible to ensure that there is less risk of damage to the pipe, which would result in repair costs. Further to this, pipelines are generally the most economical way to transfer large quantities of gas over land. Pipelines allow for gas to be transported as quickly and efficiently as possible, keeping associated costs to a minimum. Duncan Frazer, CEO of FT Pipeline Systems, said: “It is important that a pipe network to be used for gas transportation is constructed with the necessary materials. As such, the use of carbon steel pipes is a necessity in ensuring the gas within the pipeline can be transferred from one location to another without any risk of damage to the network. Carbon steel pipes are the most suitable piping available for gas pipe networks and we highly recommend their use.” FT Pipeline Systems includes steel pipes and pipe joints amongst its long list of available stock for the construction of a pipe network.
