Steel Pipe Piles are also designed to transfer structural loads through the foundation to soils below. Where H-Piles are typically classified as point bearing, Pipe Piles are most efficient as friction piles. Pipe Piles have substantial surface area that interacts with the surrounding soil to provide great frictional load resistance.

Pipe Piles are also used in conjunction with sheet piles to add lateral stiffness and bending resistance where loads exceed the capacity of sheet piles alone.

R.W. Conklin Steel sells ERW (Electric Resistance Weld Pipe), DSAW (Double Submerged Arc Weld Pipe), and Spiralweld pipe pile in a wide variety of sizes and lengths.

ERW Pipe Piling

Electric Resistance Weld (ERW) pipe is manufactured through individual sheets or from rolls of skelp. It is normally produced in sizes from 2 3/8" to 24".

DSAW Pipe Piling

Double Submerged Arc Weld pipe (DSAW) is created through a welding process in which the welding arc is immersed in flux at the time of welding. Double welds (both inside and outside the pipe) are required to manufacture this pipe, and generally each weld is completed separately. DSAW pipe is normally produced in sizes from 24” through 48” OD and wall thicknesses from .312" through 1".

Spiralweld Pipe

Spiralweld Pipe has a joint r
unning along it's entire length in a spiral form. Due to the manufacturing process, a wide variety of diameters can be produced. The length range is infinite and is determined only by the customer's transportation budget.





Chill Rings

A chill ring includes a cylindrical non-consumable base metal ring having an outside diameter sized to fit adequately i
nside the diameter of the pipe end to be welded.


Conical Points

points are used to push the earth aside and maintain grinding. On rough surfaces, the point distributes the load around the entire pipe, rather than focusing the shock on only a section.



Cutting Shoes

A open-end cutting shoe is an exceptionally tough, heat-treated cast steel shoe with a ledge to ease driving. Use of a cutting shoe pro
tects the pipe end and makes it possible to use a thinner pipe.


Pipe Caps

Pipe caps are available in all standard sizes ranging from 8 5/8" to 72".


Pipe Splicers

Pipe piling splicers are available in all pipe sizes. Pipe splicers help ease alignment of pipe and drive it with no welding required.
