As with any pipes, there is also a variety of carbon steel pipes.

They can also be used in buildings, machinery, irrigation systems, sprinkler systems, and water wells. Carbon Steel Pipe can be mig welded, stick welded, or threaded as screw pipe. It’s cheaper than stainless steel piping. It’s a good low-cost alternative for piping when price is a determining factor. Carbon steel pipe is usually used for air (pneumatics) or for hydraulics

As with any material, carbon steel pipes also provide challenges. Joining methods is basically dictated by the thickness of the wall which in turn gets dictated by the size and use. Various types of carbon steel piping can also be used. Aside from the joining of the carbon steel piping, there is also a challenge when it comes to cutting.
