This calculator will determine the weights of xtra strong (XS) steel pipes with selected material content, per AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition CD Database for pipes from 1/2" through 12" dia. and itt grinnell pipe hanger engineering manual for pipes from 14in to 36.

 CALCULATION OF INDIVIDUAL PIPE WEIGHTS For Extra Strong (XS) Weight Steel Pipe and Empty or Full of Contents, with/without Insulation, and with/without Ice Buildup Input Data: Specific Gravity of Contents = Insulation Thickness, t(insul) = in. Insulation Density = pcf Ice Thickness, t(ice) = in. Results: Cells colored Yellow are input Combination Weights (plf) Nominal Properties for Extra Strong (X-strong) weight pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the Crane Technical Paper No. 410, "Flow of Fluids through Valves, Fittings, and Pipe" (1991). Outside Properties for Extra Strong (X-strong) weight pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the Crane Technical Paper No. 410, "Flow of Fluids through Valves, Fittings, and Pipe" (1991). Inside Properties for Extra Strong (X-strong) weight pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the Crane Technical Paper No. 410, "Flow of Fluids through Valves, Fittings, and Pipe" (1991).

Contents Weight = (SG*w(contents))*(p*ID2/4)/144 (Note: densitiy of water is assumed = 62.4 pcf.) Insulation Weight = w(insul)*(t(insul)/12)*(p*(OD+t(insul))/12) Ice Weight = w(ice)*(t(ice)/12)*(p*(OD+2*t(insul)+t(ice))/12) (Note: density of ice is assumed = 56.0 pcf.)
