ASTM A106 grade B Pipe is used in power plants, boilers, petrochemical plants, oil and gas refineries, and ships where the piping must transport hot or cold liquids and gases under high pressures and temperatures.
At FASTWELL, we supply ASME SA106 grade B pipe that meets the latest chemistry standards. FASTWELL is world’s 4th largest supplier, exporter and wholesaler of full range of ASTM A106 grade B exhaust piping in India and in international market.
A list of available dimensions for A106 pipes are as follows:

  • NPS ¼” to 30” diameter
  • Schedules 10 through 160, STD, XH and XXH
  • Schedules 20 through XXH
  • Wall Thickness beyond XXH, including:
- Up to 4” wall in 20” through 24” OD
- Up to 3” wall in 10” through 18” OD
- Up to 2” wall in 4” through 8” OD
ASTM A106 Seamless Pressure Pipe covers seamless carbon steel nominal wall pipe for high-temperature service which is suitable for bending, flanging and similar forming operations. NPS 1-1/2″ or below may be either hot finished or cold drawn whereas NPS 2″ or greater shall be hot finished unless otherwise mentioned. Weight of any pipe length does not vary more than 10% over and 3.5%. Larger sizes are weighed separately by length.

ASTM A53 grade a vs b

A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe – (1) Scope

ASTM A53 is Standard Specification for Pipe, Steel, Black and Hot-Dipped, Zinc-Coated, Welded and Seamless.
ASTM A106 is Standard Specification for Seamless Carbon Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service.

A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe – (2) Applied Type of Pipe

A 53 can be welded seam or seamless depending on how it is specificed for purchase. It is a general steel pipe spec and covers galvanized pipe as well as black pipe.
A106 is a similar pipe in chemical composition but is intened for high temperature service (up to 750 Degs F). It is a seamless pipe.
At least in the US, there is usually A53 for welded pipe while A106 is seamless. If you ask for A53 in the US they will quote A106 as an alternate.

A53 Pipe vs A106 Pipe – (3) Chemical Composition

For example when we compare between A106-B and A53-B seamless from chemical composition point of view, we find that :
1. A106-B contains silicon, min. 0.10% where A53-B has zero%, and silicon is the important element for improving the heat resistance criteria.
2. A106-B contains manganese 0.29-1.06%, where A53-B 1.2%.
3. A106-B contains low sulfur and phosphorus, max. 0.035% where A53-B contains 0.05 and 0.045% respectively.
