3. Difference between black pipes and carbon pipes
In general “black” steel pipe and carbon steel pipe have about the same procedures for welding. That is if you are talking about general welding and not for some specific application like very cold temperatures. Black steel pipe is not really a specification but rather a generic term used primarily by plumbers to distinguish regular steel pipe from galvanized steel pipe. Most black steel pipe has a composition similar to ASTM A-53 pipe. The difference between A-53 and common steel pipe like A-106 are so close that some pipe is actually marked to meet both specifications. Black pipe and A 53 can be seamless or welded seam while A 106 is seamless.
