Expert guidance on an ASTM A36 channel for engineers on various procurement topics

Engineers in construction and manufacturing draw procurement requirements for appropriate channels. They partner with designers to determine product specifications and deal with suitable vendors. Acquiring an ASTM A36 channel requires careful consideration:

  • Product specifications: What are the product dimensions? Will you need custom sizes? What will be the finish, for example, bright, galvanised, etc.?
  • Calculations: Engineers must obtain clarity on the cross-section area, the moment of inertia, and the weight per foot.
  • Specify the required testing: Does the channel need destructive and non-destructive analysis?
  • Monitor necessary adjustments: Are any changes needed to streamline and maintain an optimum supply?

What is an ASTM A36 steel channel and a carbon steel U channel used for?

This specification covers carbon steel products produced by hot rolling. An ASTM A36 steel channel offers lightweight yet sturdy support. Carbon steel, comprising carbon (1%), manganese (up to 1.65%), and other trace elements, has widespread uses in bridges, gears, transportation, rails, etc. Agricultural implements, mechanical engineering works, and trailers also use these products.

U-shaped channels provide sturdiness and durability for multiple industrial applications. A carbon steel U channel has long sides and a shorter middle, but the width and height can vary based on usage. Its uses span fabrication, engineering, manufacturing, etc.

How do you measure a structural carbon steel C channel?

A C channel provides strength and support in construction and civil engineering projects. Low carbon steel structural channels get measured by the depth, flange width, and wall thickness. These measurements give you the weight (in pounds per foot or kilograms per metre). Manufacturers refer to standard size charts and the ASTM A36 guidelines for production.

The flange height refers to the horizontal sections (top and bottom). Likewise, the web thickness measures the vertical centre area. Customers may also specify another dimension called the fillet radius – the curved region between the web and the flange.

What are the different types of carbon steel structural channels?

The standard varieties are parallel and tapered flange channels. The former can be of C or U types based on the shape and design. The equal right-angled corners lend it a high strength-to-weight ratio. Another option for roofing needs is a high CS Z channel. In contrast, tapered components are usually of an I shape.

  • C Purlin: These straight-back channels extend structural support to floor joists, roofs, walls, etc.
  • Unistrut channel: A low CS strut channel supports bolting and weld-free connection with perforations.
  • I channel: Their lower resistance ratio needs additional support.
  • High carbon steel slotted channel: This economical option has perforations for quick installation.
Always ask for mill test reports of High carbon steel slotted channel and z channel before purchasing

What are the standard sizes of a channel section? Which quality test is required?

These channels get built in various sizes to match specific situations. Standard lengths for a carbon steel C channel are 3 to 6 metres. The widths can be from 75mm X 20mm to 180m X 20mm. As for the web, 80mm to 200mm is typical.

The recommended quality testing for these components includes destructive and non-destructive tests (NDT). Manufacturers prioritise testing for mechanical properties like hardness, chemical composition, and intergranular corrosion. The standard tests use Eddy Current, flattening, and radiography, with the results detailed in the MTC (Mill Test Certificate). Customers can also commission a third-party inspection.
