ULTIMA™ 601 PIPE - 600BHN Abrasion Resistant, Hardened I.D. Wear Pipe
Ultima 601 Pipe is the ideal abrasion resistant pipe for applications where extreme wear and erosion are factors. Ultima 601 Pipe is versatile. We can supply long lengths of up to 40 feet, elbows, custom sweeps and cut-to-length spools. It is excellent in service temperature to 450°F.
With its 600BHN I.D. and 250BHN O.D. hardened surfaces, Ultima 601 Pipe will take the abrasion and wear that glass, fly ash, sand, coke and coal handling cause. It is ideal for slurry piping systems.
- Bottom Ash
- Fly Ash
- Wood Chips
Schedule 40. Extra Heavy Wall roughly
conforms to Schedule 80.
Caution: DO NOT CUT LENGTHWISE, DUE TO RETAINED STRESS.
10 Ft Random Lengths
20 Ft Random Lengths
Longer Lengths Up To 40 Feet (Call for details)
End Preparation available for welding or for couplings. Sweeps and custom bends available with flanges welded in place. Elbows and fittings available with either a hardened I.D. or Rhino Klad™ I.D. coating.
U.T. Inspection for Wear Patterns
Since this is a steel pipe product, you may use ultrasonic inspection to check for wear patterns. Simply rotate the pipe a quarter turn to restart with maximum wall thickness. No need to tear down the line to check the remaining wall thickness.
Note: Because of extreme I.D. hardness, our customers often overlook the O.D. hardness. Even though it provides ductile shock resistance for the pipe, it is still WEAR PLATE HARD. You will find that it provides excellent wear resistance for applications involving wear on the O.D.

Welding I.D. hardened Wear Pipe
Our Ultima 601 induction hardened wear pipe is manufactured utilizing specialized thermal techniques that develop carbide hard inside diameters while maintaining ductile hardened outside diameters for toughness. Unregulated intense heat (from cutting, or welding operations) may “draw back" the hardness of the I.D., resulting in diminished resistance to abrasive wear. Please exercise all caution to minimize heat transferred to the inside of the diameter of the pipe.
Joint Prep: Remove all slag and discolored material after cutting, i.e. follow standard welding procedures for preparing clean smooth joints free of contaminants. Bring parts to contact, allow 3/16" max. root opening. For spaces greater than 1/16" increase leg of fillet weld by the amount of the opening.
Pre-Heat / Inter-pass Temperature: If any of the parts are colder than room temperature (70°F), preheat weld zone and 6" of adjacent material to 100°F for sections heavier than 1" thick cross-section call for guidelines. Do not exceed 450°F inter-pass temperature.
Electrodes: E7018 electrode, (1/8", or 3.18mm). Smaller diameters may be used. Follow Standard Low Hydrogen Method. Utilize sound welding practices and only use experience welders familiar with welding pipe and related products.
General Guidelines: Place welds to the outside of the pipe wall O.D. Avoid heat buildup on the I.D. Maintain smallest practical weld bead. The bead length should not exceed 5" to 6". Allow the pipe to cool before applying additional beads. Use stringer bead and avoid a weave pattern. Use multiple passes (5 to 6 passes for 3/8" filet welds - 10 to 12 passes for 1/2" filet welds.
Avoid Butt-Weld Construction
Caution: Induction hardened pipe contains retained internal stresses. Never cut this product lengthwise, as serious
injury or property damage might result. Employ all standard guidelines appropriate to welding hardened alloy
materials. Always use experienced welders.
