A106 Grade B Carbon Steel Pipe for Hotwater Boiler

carbon-steel-pipe,boiler pipes

Hi There,

Our company, CRD Transmark Ltd New Zealand, is a leading pipes, fittings and valves supplier at New Zealand.

We looking for the following pipes for a client locally. These pipes are to be used for Hot Water Boiler. Material Carbon Steel, A106 Grade B is ok

90 lengths x 76.1mm OD diameter X 3.2 mm wall thickness x 4740mm long,

51 lengths x 76.1mm OD diameter x 3.2 mm wall thickness x 5490 mm long.

If you can only offer 6 meter long standard length, we can accept 6 meter long pipes.

If you can offer FOB Auckland, New Zealand price that will be great. If not, please offer FOB Tianjing price.

Let us know the weight and dimension (length x width x height)

I am looking forward to your reply.


ASTM Carbon Steel Pipe A106 Grade B for Hotwater Boiler Dimensions Schedule

The standard covers pipe sizes in NPS (National Standard Straight) from 1/8 inch to 48 inch (10.3mm DN6 – 1219mm DN1200), meanwhile complied the nominal wall thickness of the standard ASME B 36.10M. For other sizes out of the ASME B 36.10M is also allowed to use this standard specification.

Raw materials

The materials used for ASTM A106 standard specification shall be applicable for bending, flanging, or the similar forming processes. In case the steel material is to be welded, the welding process supposed to be suitable for this grade of ASTM A106, and applicable for the high temperature working environment.

Where there is a superior or a higher grade for the ASTM A106 steel pipe is required, the standard has a optional specification for the supplementary requirements, for the pipes that used this standard. More over, these supplementary specification asked for the additional test, when the order is to be placed.

A106 gr.B Hotwater Boiler

ASTM A106 standard specifications for the seamless steel pipe have three grades, that is ASTM A106 Gr. A, Grade. B and C, with the higher grade material, the strength performance is better.

Test Methods

The test methods for the ASTM A106 A, B, C are the flattening tests, hydrostatic test, nondestructive electric test, Ultrasonic test, eddy current test, flux leakage test, these test procedures shall be notified or discussed with client to confirm what kind of test will be applied.

Please note:
For each reduction of 0.01% for maximum carbon element, an increase of 0.06% manganese above the specified value shall be permitted, and up to maximum of 1.35%.
Elements Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, V combined shall not exceed 1%.

ASTM A106 gr.B Tensile Strength and Yield Strength

astm a106 b mechanical properties tensile and yield strength

Elongation formula:
In 2 in. [50mm], shall be calculated by: e = 625 000 A^0.2 / U^0.9
For inch-pound Units, e = 1940 A^0.2 / U^0.9

Explanations of e, A, and U, please find here. (Equation same with ASTM A53, API 5L pipe.)

Tensile Strength, min, psi [MPa] Grade A 48,000 [330], Grade B 60,000 [415], Grade C 70,000 [485]
Yield Strength minimum at psi [MPa] Grade A 30,000 [205], B 35,000 [240], C 40,000 [275]
