Galvanized pipe is used in outdoor and indoor applications due to its anti rusting components. The zinc coating slows the process of corrosion and can make the pipe last for decades (in the right environment). This makes it ideal for marine applications and for transporting hot and cold water alike. Galvanized pipe isn’t perfect for every type of job though. There are disadvantages to using galvanized pipe with gas lines and are not typically used in underground applications.
Galvanized pipes have a longevity, are cost effective, and are low maintenance. They can be inspected with a trained eye and are easily assembled.
The most common area is housing and communal services and the laying of various communications. In housing and communal services, the durability of galvanized pipes is especially important. Most networks are laid underground, where private replacement is difficult. In addition to heating, water supply and gas supply, galvanized steel is used for outdoor lighting poles. Products with reinforced seam and zinc coating on the outside and inside are used for the installation of plumbing and fire pipelines.
Galvanized metal is indispensable in road construction. It is used in the manufacture and installation of traffic signs and signs, traffic light poles, as well as supports for road and bridge fences.With a zinc layer thickness of 30 microns and above, the product is able to withstand aggressive atmospheric effects and high levels of humidity for a long time. Dozens of years of operation provide significant savings on the replacement and repair of road signs, signs and poles. In road construction, the unified length of poles and supports of signs and signs is of key importance. In this case, it is important that most plants offer cutting galvanized steel gauges for specific sizes.
Galvanized metal is widely in demand in construction. Pipes have found application in the construction of industrial facilities, exhibition halls, gyms, warehouses, repair shops, parking lots, awnings and other lightweight structures. In private construction, galvanized pipes are used as pillars for fences, ducts for ventilation systems, cage frames for breeding birds and small pets. Such popularity is associated with low maintenance costs, designs can last about 40 years without additional processing.
The agricultural sector also has a high demand for galvanized products. Pipes with zinc protection can be found in elevators, greenhouses, greenhouses. However, the most common application is the supply of mineral fertilizers and irrigation in crop production. Thanks to the zinc coating, the metal can withstand moderate exposure to aggressive alkaline and acidic environments.
In horticulture and viticulture, galvanized pipes are used as a support for young fruit trees and vines. In livestock complexes, zinc coating extends the life of supports in cowsheds, chicken coops, stalls and other facilities for livestock and poultry. The anticorrosion properties of pipes allow them to resist the negative effects of animal waste for a longer period. For example, the maximum operation of a black rolled pipe in a pen for keeping and feeding an animal is 5 years, with the need to periodically carry out repair work. At the same time, a galvanized pipe without reconstruction will last at least 10 years.
