What Is The Difference Between A106 And A333 Pipes?

ASTM A333 Grade 6 pipe is a low-temperature carbon steel pipe that is typically used in applications where the pipe will be exposed to temperatures below -45°C. Because of its superior notch toughness, it performs well in cryogenic conditions and has demonstrated durability at temperatures as low as -452°F. This makes it the perfect candidate for applications where the pipe will be subject to cold temperatures throughout construction and/or operation.

A333 Seamless Pipe (ASME S/A-333) comes in nominal pipe sizes 1/4″ to 24″ O.D.

Pipe dimensions range from 1/2″ to 24″ O.D. for A333 welded pipes (ASME S/A-333).

Carbon and alloy steel pipe with a nominal (average) wall thickness intended for low temperature operation is covered by ASTM A333. There are several ferritic steel grades included in this standard. A106 GR. B Carbon Steel Seamless Pipes Some product sizes may not be available under this specification because heavier wall thicknesses harm low-temperature impact properties.

The difference between ASTM A333 and ASTM A106 is that ASTM A333 is a low-temperature carbon steel pipe that can be used as a structural pipe, while ASTM A106 is a non-structural carbon pipe that is used in high-temperature applications.

The ASTM A106 Gr.B carbon steel Pipe is valued for its high tensile strength and toughness, high oxidation resistance, and prolonged durability. Additionally, the Seamless Pressure ASTM A106 Pipe has wide applications in industries such as the gas and oil industry, water, heating, pipeline construction, and many others.

However, the ASTM A106 Gr.B carbon steel Pipe should be used only at temperatures less than 430°C, as exceeding this temperature can result in a reduction in its mechanical properties. The pipe is therefore not suitable for very high-temperature services.
