What is the difference between tube and pipe?

Sep 12, 2017

Tube and Pipe are two remarkably similar cylindrical "materials" that are used for a wide variety of applications. People often confuse the two, and the terms are Tube and Pipe are two remarkably similar cylindrical "materials" that are used for a wide variety of applications. People often confuse the two, and the terms are used interchangeably at times, but they do exhibit different characteristics. As a general rule, a tube has higher engineering specifications and manufacturing requirements than a pipe.

 

When considering which type of object to use, you must first look at the difference between how they are used and which process is used to manufacture each. What you intend to use the material for will also be a determining factor - which application will offer the most suitable solution? The following paragraphs provide a plethora of useful information relating to both tube and pipe.

 

Tubing is a cylindrical length of material that is usually hollow. Tubing can have a rectangular or square profile too. The term tube implies some degree of rigidity and also applies a level of permanence. They can be both rigid and flexible i.e. a tube used in structural construction may be rigid, whereas brass tubes are quite flexible. Each is classified by their thickness and diameter, for example, a brass tube could be 20mm with a 2mm thickness.

 

Piping is also a cylindrical length of hollow material – generally, piping is solely cylindrical and no other shape. Pipes are usually rigid and have no flexibility. Pipes are fitted using specialized fixtures such as tees and elbows. A length of pipe is classified by its schedule and nominal diameter, for example, a copper pipe could have a diameter of 250mm and a schedule of 80.
