Steam Piping

A typical steam process plant requires some form of industrial steam pipe installation designed with care and precision. An efficient plant has the ability to transport gas or fluids from one point to another through different equipment and machines designed for collective functionality. It takes engineering methods’ systematic analysis to develop an efficient and effective steam pipe system.


Simply, pipes are easy to understand. Pipes are hollow cylindrical bars that enable gases or fluids to flow freely through them. In a plant setting, pipes undergo various conditions for loading in their life span.

Since steam pipe systems can breakdown, it is important for companies to consider outcomes likely to occur and how to prevent such failures, amongst other possible hazards. In petrochemical companies, industrial projects or even the mining sector, there’s the need for gas or fluids to travel over long distances under high pressure.

Natural gas distribution and gas production projects need efficient steam pipe systems to relay gas and drive projects, respectively. Therefore, it takes a successful industrial gas line setup steam to reduce maintenance costs and prevent duct blockages or corrosive issues.

We work with different types of pipes in our steam pipe installation process. These include galvanized steel, welded pipe, schedule 40 black and steel, and carbon and alloy steel pipes. We also use various welded steel pipe installation methods to set up steam pipe systems. These include tee, elbow, reducer and cap steel pipe installations.

With various commercial or industrial applications in chemical, electric power and ship-building plants, steam pipe systems facilitate fluid and gas transfer from one point to another. IMS stocks strong and durable pipes made of non-corrosive materials to enable us install new steam pipe systems on time. This prevents reduced performance and production, with possible money losses.

Types of Weld Pipes for Steam Pipe Services We Offer

We offer five significant weld steam pipes for fitting in different industrial applications. They include:

  • Carbon steel pipes.
  • Sanitary pipes, which are TIG welded (this type of pipe is ideal for application in the food and pharmaceutical industries).
  • Stainless steel pipes.
  • Foreign weld pipes (although these pipes have slight imperfections, they are ideal when there’s a need for a company to reduce costs).
  • Domestic weld pipes (these pipes offer longer life and improved durability than other weld pipes, and are made in America).
