About GI Pipes
GI Pipes/Galvanized iron pipes are ideal for raw water and rural water treatment applications. They are steel pipes that have undergone the galvanization process which prevents the steel from aging and rusting. Zinc’s natural corrosion resistance provides long-term protection, even in outdoor environments. Apart from preventing water corrosion, it is equally effective in dry, indoor environments.
GI pipes and tubes are available in various size and shapes based on the customers requirements. .
Advantages of using GI Pipes
1. More Toughness
The unique metallurgical composition of a galvanized coating makes it very rugged. Therefore, galvanized products will resist damage during transport, assembly and service.
2. long lifespan
It can last more than 50 years in many rural areas, and more than 25 years in severely exposed urban and coastal environments.
3. Low Initial Cost
Galvanization requires less manual labor.
4. Low cost maintenance
Less effort is needed to maintain galvanized steel, because of its ruggedness and long life . This is especially beneficial when you have structures in remote locations that would be expensive to reach and service.
The galvanization process is usually standardized so that every product meets certain standards.
6. Automatic Protection For Damaged Areas
Because galvanized coatings offer cathodic or sacrificial protection, they protect the small areas of your structure that have been exposed due to damage. Other types of coating don’t provide the same level of protection, so exposed areas are vulnerable unless they’re re-coated.
7. 360 Degree Protection
The galvanization process protects every part of a structure–every nook or cranny, corner or sharp recess. This 360 degree, total protection isn’t available with other coatings.
8. Easy Inspection
The inspection process for galvanized pipe and fittings is simple and straightforward. Galvanized coatings can be examined by eye, and their thickness can be tested with simple, non-destructive methods.
9. Fast Assembly
There’s no need to prepare, paint or inspect the coating surface. Just erect the structure and move on to the next stage of construction. It is ready to be used.
