API 5L Seamless Pipe

API 5L Seamless Pipe is made as per the American Petroleum Institute specification. API 5L is used in transportation system. In industries such as Textile, Dairy, Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Sugar, Paper, Chemical & Fertilizers, Engineering, Power Generation and Nuclear Industries, the API 5L Seamless Pipes could be used as a fluid pipe, water pipe, line pipe, structure steel tube, and piling tubes.

API 5L Seamless Pipe is manufactured in compliance with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 3183 standards. This standardizes the standards for the petrochemical, refining and natural gas sectors for products, facilities, and offshore structures.

We are Stockist & Supplier or Exporter OF API 5L Seamless Pipe in Worldwide.

More about API 5L Seamless Line Pipe Specifications

The American Petroleum Institute specification API 5L covers seamless and welded steel line pipe.  This is steel pipe for pipeline transportation systems in the petroleum and natural gas industries.  API 5L is suitable for conveying gas, water, and oil.  Size range is limited only by manufacturer’s capabilities.

Specifications for API 5L adhere to the International Organization for Standardization ISO 3183, which standardizes pipeline transportation systems within the materials, equipment and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries.  The technical committee authoring the standards recognized that there are two basic Product Specifications Levels (PSL) of technical requirements and therefore developed PSL 1 and PSL 2.  PSL 1 is a standard quality for line pipe where PSL 2 contains additional chemical, mechanical properties, and testing requirements.

Grades covered by this specification are A25 ,A ,B (and the following “X” Grades), X42, X46, X52, X56, X60, X65, X70, X80.  The two digit number following the “X” indicates the Minimum Yield Strength (in 000’s psi) of pipe produced to this grade.

Reliable Pipes & Tubes Ltd stocks a full range of API 5L X52 PSL-1 & PSL-2 line pipe in seamless.
