I'm assuming you mean house pipe joints. Start at the pipe union, using a bigger pipe wrench if necessary. If the joint breaks you will have to replace the pipe. Unfortunately there aren't any real good tricks, it just takes a lot of force. you can try draining the pipe and adding heat, but don't get it hot enough to melt the galvanized coating otherwise you'll NEVER get the pipe off. If it's a gas pipe don't try putting heat on the line. That wouldn't be good.

With channel lock pliers or an adjustable wrench. If lock nut is rusted fast, a pipe wrench may be needed.

It can be. It is the past tense and past participle of the verb "to rust." Examples: Rusted steel is not as strong as the original steel. The Tin Man's joints were rusted, so he could not move.

Water constantly exerts pressure on pipe joints. I have seen old soldered joints flying apart when subjected to extreme pressure or trains passing nearby. This sometimes happens with plastic pipe also if joints are not thoroughly set .

No, Qwest pipe and joints are OK with well water

You can try spaying them with wd40 or some other oil based compound to help loosen them. Let them soak for awhile to help loosen.

belt it with a slege hammer to see if that will loosen it up failing that it needs to be heated with a torch, to burn the rust then hit with a hammer to loosen

by multiplying the pipe size with the number of welded joints.regardsZH

To replace it remove the battery terminal so you will not have power. Loosen the bolts (use liquid wrench or wd40 for this will be rusty) exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold (driver side) and then you need to loosen the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold to the part where it connect exhaust pipe from the other side of the exhaust manifold (passenger side) and then you need to loosen the electrical wire from the starter and then loosen the bolts that connect the starter now you can wiggle the starter to pull it out you need to try to figure out how to get it through the loosen exhaust pipe ( but it should come out)

With the appropriate sized spanners wrenches and tools.

No it does not. If one can afford to do so. Get the pipe replaced. Putting oil on it could make the metal supple causing it to burst.

I find a wire brush is usually enough to clean threads.

There should be a nut around the chrome pipe holding it to the brass. Loosen the nut and pull the chrome pipe out.

A pipe joint is a key component to any successful plumbing system. Pipe joints means the connection at the ends of pipes that ensures tight sealing and strength. In some cases, pipe joints must also provide for rapid assembly and dis-assembly or a change in the direction of the line of pipe. The most common types used for general-purpose metal pipes are welded, flanged, threaded, and bell-and-spigot joints. alliedallcityinc.com

A frozen pipe is a physical change, as it is just water changing state from liquid to solid (ice). However, a rusted metal bike is a chemical reaction as it is caused by the metal reacting with the oxygen in the air, in what is called an oxidation reaction.

it is better to smoke out of a pipe. that is 100% bud, no papers, no wraps involved

Keep it soaked with penetrating oil and wait and/or gently apply heat to the base of the distributor.

Its a Chemical Change because it changes its appearance. It look different then it did before it rusted

A GI pipe is welded to a GI pipe by using solder and flux. The pipe is heated up, flux applied, and then solder allowed to flow into the joints to create a secure bond.

User Avatar

Well, yes. It can loosen up your joints and make things easier to do.

Its kind of joints pipe (branch) to the primairly pipe causing blockege due to cold weather (frozen) or due to debris and sluges accumalations
