Pipe Cutting and Threading Procedure:
After pipe is cut to a tolerance of 1/16" of the actual length, a visual inspection of seams, welds, and the galvanizing is performed.
Pipe is then threaded, if needed, to American Standard Tapered Pipe Thread standards with a 3/4" taper per foot. Quality pipe is always inspected for the roundness of threads and other visual imperfections as it is removed from the threading machine. Necessary corrections are made at this time to maintain a quality product.
