Seamless Steel Pipe Storage Requirements

Date:2024-07-01    keywords: seamless steel pipe storage requirements, seamless pipe anti-rust methods

Storage environment requirements for seamless steel pipes (SMLS):

1. The storage environment of seamless steel pipes should be dry and ventilated, and the indoor temperature should be controlled above 15°C.
2. The storage place of seamless steel pipes should be equipped with trenches to facilitate timely drainage and prevent water accumulation.
3. Seamless steel pipes should be protected from prolonged exposure to sunlight and rain during storage. If it needs to be placed in the open air, sun and rain protection measures should be taken.

Anti-rust methods for seamless steel pipes:

1. There are many anti-rust methods used for seamless steel pipes, among which the use of paint, spraying, etc. is the most common. When using these methods, you should ensure that the surface of the seamless steel pipe is cleaned and treated as necessary to ensure the anti-rust effect.

2. For seamless steel pipes stored for a long time, it is recommended to adopt a passivation protection method, that is, plating a layer of zinc or chromium metal on the surface of the seamless steel pipe to prevent the surface of the steel pipe from coming into contact with ambient oxygen and causing an oxidation reaction, thereby achieving environmental protection.

Precautions for storage of seamless steel pipes:

1. Seamless steel pipes should be carefully inspected before storage. If any defects or damage are found, they should be dealt with promptly to prevent any impact on the next use.
2. Seamless steel pipes should be handled with care during transportation and storage to avoid physical damage such as collisions and falls.
3. Seamless steel pipes should not be stored for too long. They should be inspected regularly and necessary maintenance and anti-corrosion treatments should be carried out according to the actual situation.

4. Reasonable stacking, first-in-first-out: The principle requirement of stacking is to stack according to varieties and specifications under the conditions of stable stacking and ensuring safety. Different types of materials should be stacked separately to prevent confusion and mutual corrosion. It is forbidden to store items that corrode steel pipes near the stacking position; the bottom of the stacking should be elevated, solid, and flat to prevent the materials from getting damp or deformed; the same kind of materials should be stacked separately according to the order in which they are put into the warehouse, so as to facilitate the implementation of the first-come-first-served principle.

5. Seamless pipes stacked in the open air must have wooden mats or strips of stone underneath, and the stacking surface should be slightly tilted to facilitate drainage. Pay attention to placing the materials straight to prevent bending and deformation.
6. The stacking height shall not exceed 1.2m for manual operation, 1.5m for mechanical operation, and the stack width shall not exceed 2.5m. There should be a certain channel between stacks. The inspection channel is generally 0.5m. The access channel depends on the size of the material and the transportation machinery, and is generally 1.5~2.0m.
7. The bottom of the stack should be raised. If the warehouse is on a sunny cement floor, the height should be 0.1m; if the warehouse is on a mud floor, it must be raised by 0.2 to 0.5m. If it is an open-air venue, the cement floor should be padded with a height of 0.3~0.5m, and the sand and mud surface should be padded with a height of 0.5~0.7m.

In short, carbon seamless steel pipe is a widely used pipe material with very strict storage requirements. Only by strictly complying with storage environment requirements, adopting necessary anti-rust methods and paying attention to storage details can seamless steel pipes be maintained in good condition and provide reliable support for production and construction in all walks of life.
