  2. In simpler terms, pipe cannot be bent. It can only be connected with elbow/couplers to change the orientation. But tubes can be bent in 3 dimensional form.

  5. Different between tube and pipe : Tube:- 1. Tubes are more expensive than pipe due to tighter manufacturing tolerances. 2. Tubes can round, square and rectangular. 3. It is measured by outside diameter and wall thickness. 4. It is generally used for structural purpose, the OD is important and exact number. 5. Tubes are most stronger than pipes. Pipe: - 1. Pipes are always round in shape. 2. Pipe is measured by inside diameter. 3. Pipes are categorized as tubular vessels used in pipeline and piping system. 4. Pipe are typically available in large sizes then tubes...

  6. A pipe is measured by Nominal Pipe Size (NPS) per Inch and Schedule number ( Thickness of pipe ) and tube is measures by Outside Diameter (OD) and BWG number ( Thickness of Tube) . The common Pipes size as ANSI are produced from size 1/8" to 48". Pipes are used for mass. fluid and gas transfer in different industrial. Tubes are manufactured from size 1/32" to 12". Tubes are used for heat transfer in Heat exchanges,boilers,vessels and also in fire burners ( size 2" and more) and as instruments tubes and also accessories tools in Turbines and Compressors.
