Pipes & Tubes: There is no definite rule for distinguishing among the general terms pipe, tube and tubing. The proper designation has been determined by the usage of it. The word PIPE is generally used to apply to tubular products commonly used for pipelines and connections for conveying fluid from point to point. Pipes are generally used to connect large machines to other large machines and are generally not subjected to external pressures.

On the other hand the word TUBE is generally used to apply to tubular products used in the heat exchangers and boilers and in the machine and air-craft industries where the wall of the tube acts as a heat transfer media and as a result are subjected to both internal and external pressures. Tubes can also be easily coiled but the thickness and rigidity of the pipes makes them harder to bend.
