Steel Pipe Overview

FT Pipeline Systems supplies steel water pipes throughout the UK, in diameters 80mm through to 4000mm. A variety of coatings, linings and jointing options are available to suit the particular requirements of your job and the steel pipes required.

Steel water pipes are supplied in 6m, 9m, 12m, 13m and 13.5m lengths. Other pipe lengths up to 18m are available.

As well as producing a range of pipe products, FT Pipeline Systems will manufacture all types of welded fittings (bend tee, level invert tee etc.) to BS EN 10311:2005 / BS EN 10224:2002. The coating and lining of the welded fittings are identical to the pipeline.

What are the key features of steel water pipes?

“I would be happy to assure any of your potential customers of the quality and constructability of your e joint pipes and fittings.”

Spigot and socket jointing systems are commonly used in low and medium pressure steel pipelines but for potable water pipes and systems where an internal epoxy coating is required, the external fillet weld invariably damages the internal lining. The FT E-Joint overcomes this problem as it includes an air pocket which drastically reduces the heat transfer to the internal surface.

What is the weight of steel pipes?

This is a question we are often asked by our customers. Our steel pipe weight calculator is available in our Technical Centre. You will simply need the outside diameter of  the pipe and the wall thickness and our calculator will give you a weight in kilograms per metre.
