Differences between a plastic pipe cutter and a steel pipe cutter.
Pipe cutters designed for steel and plastic pipes differ significantly in terms of their construction, cutting mechanism, and the materials used for the blades. Here are some of the main differences:
- Material of the Blades: Steel pipe cutters generally use extremely hard and durable cutting blades, often made of hardened steel or carbide, that can effectively cut through the metal. Plastic pipe cutters, on the other hand, have blades made from materials like stainless steel, which are sharp enough to cut through plastic but not necessarily hard enough to cut through metal.
- Cutting Mechanism: Steel pipe cutters often employ a rotational cutting mechanism, which involves tightening the cutter around the pipe and rotating it to create a deep, continuous score until the pipe is cut through. Some steel pipe cutters also use a chain mechanism. Plastic pipe cutters, conversely, typically use a scissor-like or ratchet mechanism, allowing the user to apply a direct downward force to cut through the plastic.
- Design and Construction: Steel pipe cutters are often robustly built to withstand the pressure and force required to cut through metal. They are usually heavier and larger than plastic pipe cutters. Plastic pipe cutters are generally more lightweight and compact, with a design similar to that of a pair of scissors or a ratchet.
- Type of Cut: Steel pipe cutters are designed to create a clean, burr-free cut suitable for threading or welding. Plastic pipe cutters, in contrast, ensure a smooth, clean cut that ensures proper joining and fitting of plastic pipes.
- Price: Given the difference in construction and the materials used, steel pipe cutters are usually more expensive than plastic pipe cutters.
It’s crucial to use the right tool for the job to ensure effective cutting and to prolong the life of the tool. Using a plastic pipe cutter on a steel pipe or vice versa could damage the tool and potentially lead to safety risks.
