API 5L SSC Tested Pipes
API 5L SSC Tested 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 SSC Tested 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.
More about API 5L SSC Tested Line Pipe
Element performs Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC) testing of metals subject to cracking under the combined action of tensile stress and corrosion in the presence of water and H2S, in compliance with NACE TM0177/ ISO 15156 standards.
As a form of hydrogen stress cracking, SSC is a cracking mechanism in pipelines, facilities piping and any equipment that comes in contact with sour (wet H2S) service conditions. It is a dangerous type of corrosion which produces some of the toughest technical challenges for Oil & Gas and Petrochemical manufacturers. It often occurs without warning and it can only be observed using specialized inspection methods.
Element SSC testing helps to evaluate your materials and detect danger at an early stage, preventing failure of sour service pipelines and ensuring their reliability and longevity.
Element offers sour service materials qualification testing in accordance with NACE MR0175/ISO 15156 as well as industry specifications and requirements.
Combining industry experience with state-of-the-art laboratory testing and simulation facilities worldwide, we can simulate and evaluate the reaction of your materials under the standard sour conditions or to specific field conditions.
We have the complete range of pipes in both PSL1 and PSL2 in seamless and welded to meet your needs. Plus, we can ship globally with a fast turn-around time at the best price.
PSL1 and PSL2 are the two product specification levels which the Technical Committee accepted.
PSL 1 contains standard quality pipes, while PSL 2 pipes have specific chemical & mechanical properties and their testing requirements are also special.
As a manufacturer and supplier it gives us greater control over delivery schedules and custom orders for our client’s.
