Wheatland ASTM A 53 Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 Pipe Wheatland Steel Pipe is made by specialists who understand that its the small details that make the difference between average products and superior products. At the Wheatland Plant, most department heads and foremen have been employed in some phase of pipe manufacturing for 25 or more years.ASTM A53 Grade B Pipe, SCH 40 SA 53 Gr.B Seamless/ERW The ASTM A53 Grade B Schedule 40 is one of the most used schedules because of the medium level pressure containment capacities. The pipes are used in water supply, irrigation, sea water and waste water management systems alike. The corrosion resistance is low compared to other alloys, but the toughness and wear and tear resistance are higher.
