The size range used to produce the API 5L Carbon Steel Line Pipes Welded Pipes is as follows 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10”, 12”, 14”, 16”. Similarly, the schedule chart of API 5L may use any of the following schedules for its production i.e. - SCH 20, SCH 40, SCH 80, SCH XS, SCH STD, SCH XXS and SCH 160. With regards to their dimensions, often the outer diameter range of the API 5L pipes is as follows 1/2” to 2” as well as 3inches, 4 inches, 6 inches, 8 inches, 10 inches, 12 inches, 16 inches, 18 inches, 20 inches along with 24 inches up to an outer diameter of 40 inches.
API 5L Pipes
API 5L Seamless Pipes
Surface Treatment performed on the API 5L Erw Pipes, API 5L PSL1 Seamless Pipes could be FBE, 3PP, Varnished, Black painting, Concrete Weight Coated CRA Clad, 3PE, Lined or these pipes could be left bare. Best suited to be used in the oil and gas transmission system, the API 5L carbon steel pipes can be used to convey fluids like steam, water, slurry. Typically the chemical composition of seamless and API 5L PSL2 Line Pipes Welded Pipes, API 5L Schedule 40 Pipes vary as the welded pipes is required to have a lower content of Carbon and Sulfur for ease in welding. NACE MR0175 ERW Pipes, API 5L Seamless Pipes is used in the hydrocarbon containing petrochemical industry, where most alloys are prone to decay on account of the sour H2S or hydrogen sulphide containing environments. Although the NACE MR0175, API 5L Welded Pipes is a standard which recommends the threshold limits of hydrogen sulphide in such environments on account of the occurrence of sulphide stress related corrosion cracking, this standard does not address damage caused by general corrosion or localized corrosion for e.g. pitting or crevice corrosion.
