Carbon Steel Pipe
Carbon steel pipe is your first choice for high pressure
applications. We stock seamless A106 Grade B pipe from ½” – 12” in
Miami, and Welded A53 Grade B welded pipe, a lower cost alternative,
also in ½” – 12”. Some of our pipe is “triple stenciled” meaning it
meets the three most common specifications: API 5L Grade B, ASTM A53
Grade B and ASME A106 Grade B. Pipe grade selection is dependent
upon media, pressure, temperature and the environment. Special
grades are available for high temperatures or pressures, low
temperatures, and highly corrosive media and environments.
Larger diameters chrome and other exotic alloys, and heavier
schedules are stocked at our partner pipe yards in North Florida and
Texas. As you move to larger outer diameters, seamless pipe becomes
much more expensive than welded. If you have a specific type of
weld, such as DSAW (Double submerged arc welded) or ERW (electric
resistance welded) let us know.
Be sure to specify welded or seamless, and the wall thickness or
“Schedule” desired with your request. Specifying the proper wall
thickness is essential to insuring that your piping will match the
pressure requirements of your operation. (See Traeger’s
Note that Schedule 40 and Standard denote the same wall thickness up
to 10” only, and Schedule 80 and Extra Heavy are the same up to 8”.
If you are asking for a schedule 80 12” pipe, be sure you want “True
Schedule 80” and not just extra heavy; it will cost you more for the
True Schedule 80 wall, as it is less popular.
Remember that seamless carbon steel pipe is almost always supplied
in single random (18-22 ft) or double random (38-42 ft) lengths.
Note: Traeger (and most other pipe suppliers) will charge by the
foot supplied. We can supply no more than the amount of pipe
requested, or we can supply at least the amount of pipe requested;
typically seamless pipe cannot be supplied to your exact length.
Stainless Steel Pipe
When corrosion is an issue, your first alternative would be 304 or
316 stainless steel pipe. Stainless steel pipe is also available in
seamless or welded, with wall thicknesses from Schedule 10 through
Double Extra Strong. Other grades of stainless are also available
through Duplex; ask your salesman for detailed information.
Higher temperature applications call for higher chromium content in
the pipe’s steel makeup. We identify these piping materials by their
chrome content (5%, 9% etc) or by their ASTM designations; P5, P22
etc. Traeger currently stocks small diameter P22 pipe in our Miami
Boilers and heat exchangers require a different kind of piping to
handle the higher pressures, temperatures and exact dimensional
requirements of these highly stressed systems. This tubing is
designated by its ASME or ASTM number, the outside diameter and the
wall thickness. Tubes can be supplied in 20 ft lengths, or cut to
your exact specifications. We can find your exact requirement in
stock at our partner mill agents, or arrange for large quantities to
be delivered at a lower cost direct from the mill if your schedule
allows a longer lead time that allows the mill to schedule the
production of your tubing delivery.
A popular tube configuration for heat exchangers is a finned tube.
By welding small pieces of metal or “fins” to the OD of the heat
exchanger tubing, the total surface area of the tubes can be
increased. This increased surface area increases the ability of the
tube to transfer heat from the media inside the tubing to the
atmosphere. Fins are available attached in a helical or longitudinal
pattern. Fin materials can include carbon steel; stainless steels of
types 304, 310, 316, 321, 409, and 410; Nickel 200, and Inconel, and
can be solid or serrated.
Gauges and controls require small diameter tubing. Traeger stocks
316 grade stainless tubing in popular wall thicknesses, in sizes
from ¼”–1”. We also have
fittings in stock to connect the instrumentation tubing to the
instrumentation. Union tees, male and female connectors, union
elbows, nuts, ferrules and more are in stock in Miami today for
immediate delivery. Tylok’s founder Charles Crawford invented the
double ferrule swageless tube fitting, and his descendants are now
in full production of the system, which offers nearly identical
products at lower prices than many of their competitors. Gauges,
thermometers, siphons, seal pots, thermowells and other process
instruments are also available to complete your installation.
PVC and CPVC Pipe
Many lower pressure applications can be solved with the less
expensive PVC type pipe. Specific types are available for potable
water, reclaimed water or drainage. Schedule 40 or 80, belled end
gasketed or coupled, we can supply it quickly and economically. For
water mains, many customers specify C-900 (ductile iron sized PVC)
or Class 200 SDR 21 (Steel Pipe Sized PVC) specified, and our
partner manufacturers can ship it by the truckload. The same holds
true for large diameter sewage and drainage pipe.
This specialty pipe features a woven fiberglass body impregnated
with epoxy resin, much like the body of a boat. Another similar
design is centrifugally cast. These pipes are an alternative for
buried fuel lines, caustic chemicals and slurry service. This
material can handle temperatures up to 275°F, pressure up to 4000
PSI and is available in sizes from 1” to 72”.
Cement Lined Pipe
Many of our Caribbean customers select cement lined steel pipe for
their water applications to enhance the internal corrosion
resistance of their line. Traeger can supply this style of pipe from
one of several specialty liners. Potable water, seawater, firewater
and other applications are well suited for this material. Some
customers building undersea pipelines will have their pipes coated
on the outside to insure negative buoyancy. Whatever the application
Traeger can help you identify the correct product for the job.
Ductile Iron Pipe
The traditional choice for potable water mains, ductile iron pipe is
available in a variety of sizes and pressure ratings. Check with
Traeger Brothers for truckload quantities to insure your best
Painted and Coated Pipe
Many fuel pipelines require special paint-like epoxy coatings inside
and out. Traeger has the experience to supply these products to your
exact specifications and ship them without damage or flaws.
Copper Pipe and Tubing
Traeger Brothers has partnered with one of the world’s largest
copper producers to provide industry leading prices for high quality
copper pipe. Many of our water distribution customers will settle
for nothing less, and our ability to provide the higher quality pipe
at a competitive price insures that their quality of water can be
maintained at the highest level.
For processes so extreme and conditions so severe that none of the
above selections will do, Traeger can supply pipe in exotic alloys
such as Monel, Alloy 20, Hastelloy, Copper-Nickel, Aluminum–Bronze,
Titanium and others.
Manufacturers and countries of origin
Many of the big refining companies have Approved Manufacturer Lists
identifying those manufacturers whose products have been approved
for use in their facilities. Traeger is familiar with these
restrictions and can supply pipe from a wide variety of mills. Other
customers specify allowable countries of manufacture, or specify “no
Chinese”. Whatever your preferences or restrictions might be, you
can count on Traeger Brothers to supply the material you have
1/8” – 60”
