  • Circulating Water Lines

    AMERICAN spiral-welded steel pipe in diameters up to 144 inches is a popular choice for circulating water lines. These lines circulate water brought to the plant where it is converted to steam to power a turbine. AMERICAN ductile iron and electric resistance welded steel pipe also have power plant applications.
