NASPipe is a tough, abrasion resistant, hardened steel piping
system. Offsets, sweeps, elbows and fittings are made from
the same tough base material.
NASPipe offers advantages similar to those of mild carbon
steel pipe, such as flexibility in design and ease of
The monolithic structure of NASPipe facilitates ultrasonic
measurement of wall thickness, and has a typical wear
on straight pipe of 4 to 6 times longer than conventional
carbon steel pipe. Read

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)
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.
Our standard 20ft (6m) and 40ft (12m) lengths combined with
hardened bends and tangents will reduce the number of joints
in a system.
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).
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
