How do you measure cast iron pipe diameter?

Measure the Outside Diameter (OD) of your pipe or pipe fitting:

  1. Wrap a string around the pipe.
  2. Mark the point where the string touches together.
  3. Use a ruler or measuring tape to find the length between the tip of the string and the mark you made (circumference)
  4. Divide the circumference by 3.14159.

What is outer diameter of pipe?

OD and Nominal Pipe Size
1-1/4″). Pipe is usually measured by NOMINAL PIPE SIZE (NPS). Although it is related to the outside diameter, it is significantly different. For example, a 1-1/2″ pipe size actually has an outside diameter of 1.9″ NOT 1.5″.

Is pipe measured by ID or OD?

In short: Tube is measured by outside diameter, pipe is measured by inside diameter. There is often confusion as to which size die the customer actually needs - Pipe Size or Tubing Size. Keep in mind that pipe size refers to a nominal - not actual - inside pipe diameter. Schedule refers to the pipe's wall thickness.

How do you find the outside diameter?

To calculate the diameter of a circle, multiply the radius by 2. If you don't have the radius, divide the circumference of the circle by π to get the diameter. If you don't have the radius or the circumference, divide the area of the circle by π and then find that number's square root to get the radius.

What is the outside diameter of 1/2 inch PVC pipe?

Wall Thickness
The OD for 1/2" PVC pipe is 0.840" and the OD for 3" PVC pipe is 3.500". If the nominal size is the ID, then that means 1/2" PVC pipe walls are . 170" thick and 3" PVC pipe walls are 0.250" thick. The wall thickness continues increasing as the pipe gets larger.

How do I calculate pipe size?

The equation for pipe diameter is the square root of 4 times the flow rate divided by pi times velocity. For example, given a flow rate of 1,000 inches per second and a velocity of 40 cubic inches per second, the diameter would be the square root of 1000 times 4 divided by 3.14 times 40 or 5.64 inches.

How do you joint a cast iron pipe?

Caulked Joints
  1. The spigot end of a pipe or fitting is placed inside the hub of another pipe or fitting making sure that both are clean and dry.
  2. Oakum is placed in the joint using a yarning iron and then packed to the proper depth by using the packing iron.
  3. Molten lead is then poured into the joint.

Is nominal pipe size the inner diameter?

Nominal pipe size refers to only the outside diameter (OD) of a pipe making it somewhat vague. For example, when we say pipe size is 2 NPS, it refers to all the pipes having 2.375-inch (or 60.3 mm) as outside diameter irrespective of wall thickness and thus the inside diameter.
