Traeger Pipe and Tube
Pipe and tubing are essential to any industrial operation, and Traeger Brothers has the exact type that you need. We are familiar with your required specifications and know exactly how to proceed to supply your required material on time and correct the first time. We stock several sizes and types of pipe and tubing in our Miami warehouse and can supply what we don’t have on our racks quickly and efficiently, directly to your job site or freight forwarder.
 


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 pipe chart here). 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. 

Chrome Pipe
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 facility.

Boiler Tube
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.
 

Finned Tube
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.

Instrumentation Tubing
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
Tylok tube 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.  

Composite 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 price. 

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.

Special Alloys
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 selected.
