## Is steel pipe measured by ID or OD?

outside diameter

SIZE: And regardless of its material, steel tube is measured by its actual outside diameter (OD). For instance, the diameter of a 1 ¼” tube is a true 1.25″, while a 1 ¼” pipe is 1.625″. The wall thickness of thinner tubing is measured by gauge while thicker tubing is measured in fractions or millimeters.

### What is square steel pipe called?

tube steel

Rectangular and square HSS are also commonly called tube steel or box section. Circular HSS are sometimes mistakenly called steel pipe, although true steel pipe is actually dimensioned and classed differently from HSS.

### What is the outside diameter of 1 inch steel pipe?

Tubing is measured by the OUTSIDE DIAMETER (O.D.), specified in inches (e.g., 1.250) or fraction of an inch (eg. 1-1/4″). Pipe is usually measured by NOMINAL PIPE SIZE (NPS)….OD and Nominal Pipe Size.

Nominal Pipe Size | Outside Diameter (inches) |
---|---|

1/2″ | 0.84 |

3/4″ | 1.05 |

1″ | 1.315 |

1-1/4″ | 1.66 |

**How do you measure steel pipe diameter?**

How to Check the Diameter of a Metal Pipe

- Direct Diameter measurement is the easiest. Measure at the end of the pipe.
- Direct Diameter measurement with a caliper (useful if the end is not accessible) 1 1/2″ pipe.
- Measure circumference using a flexible tape and divide the outside circumference by 3.1415.

## What is the nominal diameter of a pipe?

The value of the nominal diameter is close to the inner diameter of the pipe but not equal to it, and is adopted in order to unify the connecting dimensions of the pipe and pipe fittings. The nominal diameter is specified using DN followed by a dimensionless number which corresponds to the approximate inner diameter of the pipe.
