Equivalent Grades: STM A106, ASME SA106 pipe. A106 is a kind of carbon steel pipe of USA standard. It can transport various fluids and gases under the high pressure and high temperature, and is often used for steam, petrochemical products, natural gas and other industrial piping systems.
A106 can be widely used in petroleum, chemical, boilers, power plant, ships, machinery manufacturing, automotive, aviation, aerospace, energy, construction and military industries.
A106 is widely used in seamless carbon steel pipe for high temperature.
International Comparison of Materials
**This comparison table is for reference only. The standards and grades of various countries have slightly different chemical compositions. Please refer to the database for details.**
Chemical Composition(JIS G4051)
1. Building construction: pipes for infrastructure piping, groundwater pumping, and hot water delivery from boilers.
2. Mechanical Engineering: machinery parts for machining process, such as bearing sleeves, shaft tube, etc.
3. electrical engineering: pipes for fuel delivery and hydroelectric generators.
4. Others: antistatic pipes for wind power generators and so on.
- Steel Application
It is widely used in light industry and is mainly used to fix rotating bearings. The materials for bearing bush application that we recommend are as below.
The material types of mechanical parts include metallic materials, non-metallic materials and composite materials. Metal materials are divided into ferrous metal materials and non-ferrous metal materials. Ferrous metal materials include steel, cast steels and cast irons, which have good mechanical properties (such as strength, ductility, toughness, etc.), and are relatively cheap and easy to obtain. Non-ferrous metal materials have the advantages of low density, good thermal and electrical conductivity. The materials for machining parts application that we recommend are as below.
