Conduit pipes are generally used for the transportation of water, oil, gas, steam, compressed air, and other non-corrosive fluids in installations such as warehouses, buildings, stadiums, airports, malls, hospitals, industries, and more. They can be applied in piping systems with rigid or flexible cold connections.

At Tuper, conduit pipes are manufactured in carbon steel, welded, and in accordance with the ABNT NBR 5580 and NBR 5590 standards. For pipes that meet the NBR 5580 standards, in light, medium, and heavy classes, the dimension options provided range from 1/2″ to 6″. For NBR 5590, SCH 5 to 80, Grades A and B, the dimension options range from 1/2″ to 12″.

They are manufactured to efficiently meet various market needs and comply with INMETRO’s compulsory certification, in accordance with the current legal provisions to ensure safety for life and property.
