What is ASTM A334?
ASTM, or the American Society for Testing Materials, specifies steel alloys with an “A” prefix followed by three numbers to denote the composition and minimum yield strength. ASTM A 334 is the specification for low-carbon steel available in six grades. The most used ASTM A 334 grades 1 and 6 have a maximum of 0.30 % carbon content, while the others are around 0.20%.
ASTM A334 gr 1 tubes complying with all ASTM A 334 specifications are best for many applications in oil & gas, power generation, nuclear plants, and others. Its low carbon and high manganese content with over 98% iron. Hence these tubes are more robust, cheaper, and corrosive resistant to be suitable for many applications.

What are the grades of ASTM A334 pipe?
There are six ASTM A 334 pipe grades for use in many applications as per their different chemistry, properties, and uses. The following are the few grades with their chemical composition and properties.
- SA334 grade 1 pipe has a carbon content of a maximum of 0.30%, manganese of a maximum of 1.06%, 0.60 maximum sulfur, and 0.05 phosphorous to have a minimum yield point of 205 and tensile strength of 380
- ASTM A 334 Grade 3 has less carbon of 0.19%, manganese maximum of 0.64%, phosphorous, and sulfur close to Grade 1 composition to have a high minimum yield point of 240 and tensile strength of 450
- ASTM A 334 Grade 6, 7, 8, and 9 have carbon from 0.18 to 0.30% with minimum yield points from 240 to 520 and tensile strength from 415 to 690

ASTM A334 grade 1 vs. six carbon steel tube
Out of the six grades of ASTM A 334, the most used carbon steel tubes are grades 1 and 6. Though they have some similar properties and uses, there are also differences between them because of slight differences in their chemical compositions. The following are the differences between ASTM A334 gr.1 carbon steel and grade 6 pipes.
- ASTM A 334 grade 6 has a higher minimum yield strength of 240 than 205 of grade 1
- Grade 6 has a higher tensile strength of 415 than 380 of grade 1

Are ASTM A334 gr 1 tubes durable?
ASTM A334 gr 1 pipe and tube are durable as they have high manganese of around 1% for the different grades. Also, ASTM A334 gr 1 tubing with low carbon content to not be too hard or brittle to break can last long. Because it is robust and has better ductility and conductivity, the SA334 grade 1 pipe is best for boiler equipment, pressure vessels, petrochemical plants, and others. It is because ASTM A334 gr 1 welded pipe has durability because of its chemical composition and manufacturing process along with corrosion, abrasion, and pitting resistance.
