Pipe Casting

Pipe Casting

 

the production of pipes by casting from pig iron; also, the preparation of pipe blanks from steels—mainly alloy steels—and from copper alloys (seeFOUNDRY INDUSTRY).

Pipe is cast mainly by centrifugal and semicontinuous casting methods. Centrifugal casting in metal molds is normally used for mass produced single-funneled pipes, and centrifugal casting in sand molds is used for double-funneled and double-flange pipes. Semicontinuous casting is carried out in pipe-casting units with or without regulating devices. Multiple-strand casting, which is the simultaneous preparation of several pipes in one casting unit, is used to increase productivity.
