Steel Pipe Dimensions & Sizes Chart (Schedule 40, 80 Pipe) Means

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

People always confused about how to describe steel pipe dimensions (sizes) in correct ways,Prefab Villas Supplier or how to clarify to seller what exactly pipe size we are going to purchase. In case any misunderstandings or a different size we purchased, that will be a big trouble.The standard covers the standardization of steel pipe dimensions and sizes. These pipes includes seamless or welded types, and applied in high or low temperature and pressures.

The pipe distinguished from tube (Pipe vs Tube), here the pipe is specially for pipeline systems, fluids transmissions. Use the standard of ASME B 36.10M.In this standard, the pipe Outer Diameter smaller than 12.75 in, pipe actual diameters is larger than NPS (Nominal Pipe Size)or DN (Nominal Diameter).Second, for NPS 1/8 (DN 6) to NPS 12 (DN 300), these are based on a standard outside diameter (O.D.) This O.D. was originally selected to specify pipe dimension, but as the pipe always have an wall thickness and internal diameter (ID). For small pipe, there is a different size between OD and ID (Wall thickness), but as the pipe dimensions became larger, the OD and ID approximately to become equal.

As there is no such relation between the old standard thickness (O.D.) and Nominal Size, so both of them accepted by standard ASME B 36.10 M.Steel pipe schedule is a indicating method represented by ASME B 36.10, and also used in many other standards, marked with Sch. Sch is the abbreviation of schedule, generally appearing in the American steel pipe standard, which is a prefix of a series number. For example, Sch 80, 80 is a pipe number from chart/table ASME B 36.10.

Since the steel pipe main application is to transport the fluids under pressure, so their internal diameter is their critical size. This critical size is taken as nominal bore (NB). Therefore, if steel pipe carry the fluids with pressure, it is very important that pipe shall have enough strength and enough wall thickness. So wall thickness is specified in Schedules, which means the pipe schedule, abbreviated as SCH. Here ASME is the given standard and definition for the pipe schedule.As describing the steel pipe parameter, we usually use the pipe schedule, It is a method that represent pipe wall thickness with number. Pipe schedule ( sch. ) is not a wall thickness, but a wall thickness series. Different pipe schedule means different wall thickness for the steel pipe in the same diameter

? Global Stainless Steel Price Upturn Anticipated

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

Rising raw material costs have combined with traditional,Prefab Houses Supplier seasonal factors to provide expectations for a strong recovery in stainless steel prices during the second trimester of 2019. LME nickel costs followed an upward trend from the beginning of January until early March.

Market participants, correctly, predicted a rise in the European ferrochrome contract, in the second quarter. Consequently, suppliers were encouraged to push for an uplift in nominal basis prices. In February, most ex-mill transaction values, for 300-series coils, rose by more than the hike in alloy extras. This introduced the hope, among producers, that basis figures would begin to recover to a level that would represent profitable operations, for the mills.

In March 2019, European alloy surcharges, for austenitic flat products, increased and substantially after falling consistently since the last peak figure, in July 2018. Regional mills proposed further increments to nominal basis values. However, in a climate of moderate demand, buyers consider that the latest rise in alloy extras is as much as the market could withstand.

Nickel values softened, after reaching a high point in early March. As a result, the recently published alloy surcharges for April represent a less dramatic increase than was recorded in the previous month. In this environment, European mills will continue to seek increased nominal basis prices. MEPS believes that they will achieve modest success, in this endeavour.

In the United States, the leading producer, North American Stainless, announced basis price hikes for austenitic hot rolled plate and round bars, effective from April 1. Given the producer's powerful position in the market, these proposals are receiving little resistance. Conversely, in the hot and cold rolled coil sector, steep rises in alloy surcharges were offset by mediocre demand. As a consequence, basis values softened, in March. With further increases to alloy extras published for April and forecast for May US producers are likely to find difficulties in lifting basis prices, in the near term.   

Oumier Wasp Nano RTA Review

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

This atomizer , oumier armadillo rda, is the latest atomizer tank from Oumier family. Exactly it has been released almost one month ago. And I have made its unboxing video in our YouTube channel, you guys can click the link to see where on the bottom of the review.
Oumier keeps contributing in atomizer market all the time so you can find that there’re just a few box mods they produced and launched. That’s why we have such a great RTA to review today! Well plus this oumier wasp nano rta, the oumier wasp nano series is complete now. The other two is Wasp Nano RDTA and Wasp Nano RDA which has already sold at our store for a long time.
Talk about the material on this tank, traditional material selection and the same craft combination. PCTG drip tip and SS metal frame are the all manufacturers choice in atomizer making. PCTG material or resin material drip tip has an effective prevention to avoid the heat from the hot cloud. And there’re also more replacement resin drip tips for vapers to select. Well judge from the picture above, you know you can not replace any extra drip tips on this mini RTA cause its none drip tip design but just one whole cap.
The inner chamber part is easily to take off for coil building and cleaning. You can clearly see the painted wasp pattern with wasp nano logo. And another point is the small size building deck. So you need to carefully trim with the coil and cotton you install. On the other hand, the screw structure of the chamber part is not easily handled with. I mean, it’s not easy to screw on even just a little dislocation.

Smok Morph 219 & TF2019 Tank Kit Preview

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

The smok morph kit includes the new Morph 219 mod and the TF2019 sub ohm tank.Smok are marketing this kit as a “New Classic”! Despite similar looks to the Alien range at least this kit isn’t borrowing looks from other brands…

The main feature of the Morph 219 mod is the new touch screen. Including even a keyboard for setting a password function to help stop others using your vape!As the name implies the maximum output is 219W and there are variable wattage and temperature control modes to play with.You will need 2×18650 batteries which are not included and the mod uses a new IQ-S chipset apparently.
Looks wise it borrows from the Alien range but with a large resin panel on the back. You still get a nice fire bar plus an extra lock button.The tank has a new range of coils (that will help with Smok coil naming confusion – not) which have a push in and pull out installation.

You get two coils in the kit – the 0.25ohm mesh BF coil and the 0.35ohm BC mesh. These are wicked with antibacterial medical cotton too!There are 5 colours to choose from – Black / Red, 7-Colour / Black, Gold / Black, Prism Blue / Black and Prism Chrome / Black.I’m not sure it’s just my personal feeling or what. Cause this tank is already in stock in every vape store and probably some of you guys have picked one using. It’s not easy to please ev

SMOK Morph 219W TC Mod Kit Review

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

smok morph kit Review– During 2017 and 2018 we (as in Spinfuel VAPE) were constantly telling our readers (that would be you folk) that SMOK was way too prolific in their vape mod and starter kit offerings. There was only so many ways to present the same “ingredients”. Like Taco Bell or any Chinese Food Restaurant… same ingredients folded or pressed to look like something different. Every SMOK Vape Mod and Sub-Ohm Tank were basically the same; the differences lie in the chassis design, colors, and Resin finish (or lack thereof). Maybe turning away from churning out 220W mods and V8/V12 coils did SMOK some good. The SMOK Morph, a 219W TC starter kit offers a lot of new ideas, some better than others.
Opening the box of the SMOK Morph Starter Kit my first impression was that it was smaller and thinner that I had imagined. But more than that, after inserting 2x 18650 3100mAh batteries into it, clicking the side position fire panel, it proved to be a lot less intuitive than I expected. After several minutes believing I had no need for the operating manual, I couldn’t figure out how to operate this, what turned out to be, a very well thought out Touchscreen mod. Though, honestly, I was beginning to believe the one I received to review from Vapor Authority, was defective. 

Adolescent daily users more likely to obtain electronic cigarettes from comm

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

University of Cincinnati research on adolescent use of electronic Electronic Cigarette was featured prominently at the American Academy of Health Behavior 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting on Monday, March 11, in Greenville, South Carolina.

"Electronic Cigarette Acquisition Means Among Adolescent Daily Users" earned Ashley Merianos, an assistant professor with UC"s School of Human Services, the 2019 Judy K. Black Award, which is presented by the AAHB in recognition of early-career health behavior research that is innovative and rigorous and that makes an important contribution to science or practice.

Merianos' research is a reflection of UC's commitment to solving urban issues related to health and well-being, prevention, quality care, researching the next cure, equality in access and talent development. Urban Health and Urban Impact are key components of the university's strategic direction, Next Lives Here.

Merianos performed a secondary analysis of the 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey and found that of 1,579 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 who had admitted to using electronic cigarettes within the last 30 days of the survey, 13.6 percent were daily users. Her research further found that those daily users were far more likely to obtain their electronic cigarettes and accessories from commercial sources than their non-daily using counterparts.

Adolescents for whom electronic cigarette use was a daily habit were 5.2 times more likely to buy their e-cigarettes from a drug store, 4.4 times more likely to get them from a vape shop, and 3.3 times more likely to purchase them from a mall kiosk.

Daily users were also more likely to purchase their e-cigarettes and vaping supplies online, albeit to a lesser degree; they were 2.5 times more likely to make online purchases than non-daily users. "The internet is very hard to regulate, especially for e-cigarette sales," Merianos says.  

What Are Electronic Cigarettes?

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

Electronic Cigarette are battery powered devices that people use to heat liquid into a vapor that can be inhaled. They’re also called e-cigarettes, e-cigs, or vapes.

The inhaled vapor may contain nicotine (the addictive drug in tobacco), flavorings, and toxins—including ones that cause cancer.

The government controls e-cigarettes as tobacco products. This means you must be at least 18 to buy them in the U.S. Despite that, e-cigarettes are more popular among U.S. teens than any other form of tobacco. In 2017, about 1 in 5 twelfth graders reported “vaping” nicotine.

Youth who use nicotine are at risk of long-term health effects. Nicotine affects the development of the brain’s reward system and brain circuits that control attention and learning. Continued use of nicotine can lead to addiction and raise the risk for addiction to other drugs.

Some people believe that e-cigarettes can help them quit smoking tobacco. Researchers are testing whether this may be true. However, nicotine patches and many other FDA-approved quit aids are available now to help people quit smoking. 

Vaping shops fear new tax will put them out of business

Vaping shops fear new tax will put them out of business

Take a look around Get Your Vape Wholesale On in Emmaus and you'll see dozens of bottles of vaping liquid in every imaginable flavor, some you probably wouldn't imagine, and a selection of devices that turn it into vapor that can be inhaled.
But these days, all shop owner Dave Petrozzo sees is red ink. And he's not the only one. The statewide association that represents vape shops says about a third of its members have gone out of business since a new 40 percent wholesale tax on the industry took effect in October.
The new tax, which is paid by shop owners on all vaping liquid and accessories they stock, has taken a bite out of the bottom line at Get Your Vape On by forcing Petrozzo to pay 40 percent more for every item of inventory on his shelves. Until it sells, that's money he's simply out.
He marked up the price on his products to recover the cost of the tax, but that has pushed some of his customers to buy online, where he says sellers have been less than conscientious about remitting the wholesale tax.
"This is the first time I've ever been in debt," Petrozzo said. "It has affected the business dramatically. There are certain products I can't carry because a lot of people are buying online. Then we have to look for products that we can get at a decent price and sell them to make some money. But some of the stuff, it's impossible.Sen. Camera Bartolotta, a Republican who represents parts of Beaver, Greene and Washington counties, this week proposed a change in the state's vaping tax that would help store owners such as Petrozzo. It would replace the 40 percent tax with a 5-cent-per-milliliter levy on consumers when they buy vaping liquid, often referred to as "juice."
"It's much too burdensome on a burgeoning industry that could be providing revenue by way of taxes to Pennsylvania, but we are doing the opposite, we are killing off an industry expecting it to give us millions of dollars in revenue," she said.
Senate Republicans have not taken a position on the proposal and it's not clear if the plan will become part of 2017-18 budget discussions, which are just beginning to get underway, spokeswoman Jennifer Kocher said.The 40 percent tax has raised $6.1 million since it took effect in October, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, including $1.6 million in February. That doesn't include revenue from a "floor tax" provision that required retailers to make a one-time payment based on the value of items on their shelves when the tax kicked in.

UBC Coffee taken to task for waste mismanagement

April 15, 2019 by freemexy  

A UBC Coffee outlet in Minhang District was ordered on Wednesday to rectify waste-sorting irregularities by authorities.To get more Minhang news, you can visit shine news official website.

The outlet of the cafe chain on Hongmei Road S. failed to install different garbage bins, and vegetables, fruit peels and napkins were dumped into the same waste containers, which is against regulations, officials with the Meilong Town urban management and law enforcement team discovered. Officials gave the cafe two days to fix its infractions or face a fine.

The chain should install four bins for different types of waste and sort its garbage accordingly, officials said.Wednesday also marked the establishment of the city's first comprehensive urban management and law enforcement working station, which is located in Meilong area. The station is meant to enhance community management and raise enforcement efficiency. The station covers 10 villages, 20 residential complexes and several business areas.

"Meilong Town is big, covering 28 square kilometers, and such stations significantly cut the distance for inspections, allowing officials to arrive at the scene as quickly as possible after receiving complaints and tips-off," said Yang Yifan, a member of the Meilong Town urban management and law enforcement team.The station will collect public opinions, solve complaints and promote garbage sorting. Such stations will be established at more residential communities citywide, said Yan Yongkang, deputy director of the Shanghai Urban Management and Law Enforcement Bureau. The stations will also tackle irregularities related to unauthorized structures in apartment blocks and damage to load-bearing walls.
