In many people's minds, the common way to load equipment is pipeline transportation. However, the pipes also have different materials. So, what are the pipe materials of the land loading arm?

The following is the outline:

What are the pipe materials of the land loading arm?

What is the effect of lining with PTFE?

What are the advantages of stainless steel pipes?

What are the pipe materials of the land loading arm?

Carbon steel. That is, an iron-carbon alloy with a carbon content of less than 2.11%. Generally speaking, the higher the carbon content in carbon steel, the greater the hardness, but the lower the plasticity.

stainless steel. Stainless steel with no more than 1.2% carbon content. Stainless steel is resistant to weak corrosive media such as air and water vapor

Aluminum and aluminum alloy. Aluminum products are widely used in industrial production. Some aluminum alloys still perform well in low temperature environments and can work in liquefied gas environments.

Lined with polytetrafluoroethylene. Used to isolate corrosive liquids such as acids or alkalis. In this way, the service life of the external stainless steel pipe can be extended.

What is the effect of lining with PTFE?

Anti-acid and anti-alkali. The lining polytetrafluoroethylene is also called non-stick coating, which is a synthetic polymer material that uses fluorine to replace the hydrogen atoms in polyethylene. This anti-acid and anti-alkali property makes it can be used as a pipeline lining to transmit corrosive fluids.

Easy to clean. This kind of PTFE has a very low coefficient of friction, so it can be used as a lubricating barrier and has a non-stick effect, and it is very clean.

High temperature resistance. With a melting point of 327 degrees Celsius and a boiling point of 400 degrees Celsius at normal pressure, it can maintain good performance in extremely high temperature environments. It has a wide range of applications and can transmit high-temperature fluids.

What are the advantages of stainless steel pipes?

Polishing performance. Stainless steel raw materials have a smooth surface and almost perfect polishing, so a good surface can be easily obtained when making stainless steel loading arm pipes.

Heat resistance. Stainless steel can maintain its excellent physical and mechanical properties at higher temperatures. It can adapt to the high temperature and hot weather in summer.

Easy to solder. Different shapes of pipes can be welded by means of integrated stainless steel, which can expand the range of movement of the loading arm. Rotary joint connection can be used where welding is not possible, so that a tight and safe transmission effect can also be obtained.

In short, the pipeline materials of the land loading arm are mainly carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, and lined with polytetrafluoroethylene. Lianyungang Loadarm Industry Co., Ltd.
