NASPipe Icon

NASPipe is a tough, abrasion resistant, hardened steel piping system. Offsets, sweeps, elbows and fittings are made from the same tough base material.

NASPipe Product RangeNASPipe offers advantages similar to those of mild carbon steel pipe, such as flexibility in design and ease of fabrication. The monolithic structure of NASPipe facilitates ultrasonic measurement of wall thickness, and has a typical wear life on straight pipe of 4 to 6 times longer than conventional carbon steel pipe. Read more technical information here.

NASPipe is one of the most cost-effective pipes available in the industry today and is approved to ASME B31.11 Slurry Transportation Piping Systems.

NASPipe is manufactured from a special analysis steel in nominal pipe sizes from 2.5ins (73mm) to 24ins (610mm) and is available in up to 50ft (15m) lengths. A special heat treatment process produces a thick zone of 600 BHN on the inner surface of the pipe to provide NASPipe's wear-resistant properties. The softer outer surface adds to NASPipe's toughness.

NASPipe will also accept many of the common coupling methods used for plain, mild steel pipe. Welded pipe joints utilize pipe with weld rings attached. The rings form a 'V' groove which receives a full penetration weld. When using Victualic® couplings, these are applied over weld rings, but the pipe can also be grooved for certain sizes and applications.

NASPipe is supported by application and product engineering staff who will be pleased to review particular customer requirements. We would be pleased to supply additional information and welcome your inquires.

NASPipe is ideal in situations where transportation of abrasive materials, economy in cost and weight, longevity and low flow resistance are indicated. It is also suitable for elevated temperature applications up to 230°C (446°F).

Point of installation fabrication is facilitated because NASPipe can be cut with an abrasive saw or plasma arc torch and welded using common low-hydrogen welding rods. Specifications for the necessary welding procedures are available upon request.
