Line Pipe Schedule 160 Dimension, Weight and Thickness Chart

Oilfield Chart - Line Pipe Schedule 160 Dimension, Weight and Thickness Chart

Line Pipe Schedule 160 Dimension, Weight and Thickness Chart contains fact-based information on line pipe. Specific structural data about the line pipe is valuable as they represent the pipe’s strength, limitation, and suitability to certain situations.

Line pipe schedules are commonly used to determine the thickness of the pipe. In the pipe industry, as the figure increases, so does the pipe’s diameter. While the pipe schedule can be similar with various pipe sizes, its thickness still varies. 

Line Pipe Schedule 160 Dimension, Weight, and Thickness Discussion

The function of the pipe is to carry and transport fluid from its source area.  Given this, the pipe’s internal diameter is considered a critical dimension. In the past, there were three pipe wall thickness standards being followed:

  • Standard or STD
  • Extra Strong or XS
  • Double Extra Strong or XXS

However, these were not suitable for all the applications. The pipe chart has been revised and international institutions came up with pipe schedules. There are now 11 schedule numbers typically used: 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, and 160.

These are the standards given by prominent institutions such as ANSI (American National Standards Institute), ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), and API (American Petroleum Institute). SCH 40 is popular and preferred more for pipe that measures 8 inches or below, while pipe schedules 5, 60,100, 120 and 140 are rarely utilized.

Certain factors are considered first when pipe is involved in a project. In the revised pipe chart, STD is equivalent to SCH for NPS 10 while XS is identical to pipe schedule 80 for NPS 8. The strongest and most efficient is comparable to SCH 160 from NPS 60.

The schedules are usually calculated using this expression:

SCH Number = (1,000) (P/S)

P – the internal pressure

S – the stress that is allowed for the material

Line Pipe Schedule 160 Dimension, Weight and Thickness Chart Abbreviations:

  • OD – Outside Diameter
  • in – inches
  • mm – millimeter
  • lb/ft – pounds per feet
  • kg/m – kilogram per meter
  • Wgt – Weight
  • Nom. Size – Nominal Size
  • Wall Thkns – Wall Thickness

In this Line Pipe Schedule 160 Dimension, Weight, and Thickness Chart, the factors that comprise the line pipe dimension 160 are presented. These are used to determine the diameter of the pipe for different industrial purposes.

Nominal Pipe Size is an international standard implemented to follow specific pipe diameter and thickness.
