1. Surface defects: These can include scratches, pits, scabs, or cracks on the outer surface of the pipe. Causes of surface defects can be improper handling or storage, poor machining or grinding processes, or issues during the cold drawing process.
2. Internal defects: These can include cracks, voids, or uneven thickness within the pipe wall. Internal defects can be caused by poor material quality, improper heat treatment, or issues during the cold drawing process.
3. Dimensional defects: These can include out-of-roundness, ovality, or variations in wall thickness along the length of the pipe. Dimensional defects can be caused by improper calibration of the equipment used in the cold drawing process or variations in the raw material used.
4. Lamination defects: Lamination defects are caused by the separation of layers within the pipe wall, leading to weak spots. This can be caused by impurities in the raw material or improper forging or rolling processes before the cold drawing stage.
5. Weld defects: In some cases, cold drawn seamless carbon steel pipes may have weld defects if the pipe is produced by welding multiple pieces together. These weld defects can include cracks, lack of fusion, or undercutting.
It is important to note that these defects can be minimized or eliminated by using high-quality raw materials, maintaining proper process control, and ensuring a thorough inspection of the pipes before they are used in high-demand applications.
