Carbon Steel Seamless API 5L X80 PSL 2 Pipe
We offers API 5L seamless steel pipe from API 5L Gr B to X80, product specification level PSL1 and PSL2. Onshore/Offshore and sour services (H2S corrosive environment NACE pipe). Including manufactured in hot rolled seamless and cold drawn (rolled) seamless pipes. Largest diameters up to 40 inch.
API 5L X80 Line Pipes are manufactured as per specifications established by American Petroleum Institute (API). API 5L is a specification of API which defines the standard for the dimension, physical, mechanical and chemical properties of the steel. We also stock the API Line pipe of Top Steel pipe mills who manufacture the API 5L pipes specially for Oil and Gas industry. API 5L X80 Seamless line pipe is produced to the API 5L specification, and is intended for the conveyance of oil and natural gas & other fluids in pipe lines, transmission lines, or gathering lines. Line pipe may also be certified to the ASTM A-1024 specification.
API SPEC 5L is a international standard specifies requirements for the manufacture of two product specification levels (PSL 1 and PSL 2) of welded steel pipes for use in pipeline
transportation systems in the petroleum and natural gas industries. Pipe Specifications for these pipes regulate usage for standard Grade A and Grade B pipes, with Grade X indicating stronger variants for drilling, production and transport requirements for offshore, arctic, deep well or harsher environments.
API 5L pipes may be classified according to the following criteria:
execution: seamless or welded (seamless pipes may be used up to 24 inches, LSAW above 24 inches, ERW up to 20 inches)
specification level (API PSL1, PSL2): PSL1 is a standard quality used for pipelines, whereas PSL2 sets more stringent chemical, mechanical properties, and testing requirements
surface finish: black, varnish painted, anti-rust oil, galvanized, coated externally (3PL) and/or lined internall
ends types: plain, beveled, threaded ends
The main advantages of API 5L pipe are:
Resistance to cracking forces that may propagate in long pipelines
Sour service suitability
Rather inexpensive and long service life (at least grades B, X42)
API 5L pipes are available in dimensions between from 2 to 28″ (seamless execution) and up to 80″ in welded execution (generally, LSAW i.e. longitudinal submerged arc welding).
The API 5L and ASME B36.10 pipe dimensions and weights are, in fact, identical.
Carbon steel pipe in API grades API 5L X80 PSL 2 Pipe, welded A53B and seamless A106B are represented in this stock list.
