API Spec 5CT – Specification 5CT/ISO 11960, Specification for Casing and Tubing, Eighth Edition, Petroleum and natural gas industries-Steel pipes for use as casing or tubing for wells.

Heat treatment

PSL1 requirements: J55 and K55 same way (can be rolled-state delivery);
PSL2 requirements: J55, K55 product should be normalized or normalized and tempered overall, if thick, should be normalized or normalized and tempered after thickened.

Tensile test

Data yield strength tensile minimum elongation
J55 379MPa ~ 552MPa ≥517MPa 19%
K55 379MPa ~ 552MPa ≥655MPa 15%

Impact test

J55 and K55 impact test must be done, the minimum size of the sample lateral impact energy 20J, the smallest full-size sample longitudinal impact energy 27J.

Wall thickness detection

PSL1: J55 and K55 for measuring the wall thickness of no coverage requirements;
PSL2: J55 and K55 for wall thickness measurement and recording deal with the entire length of the best coverage of the surface area of ​​automatic detection system should reach 25%.

PSL1: J55 and K55 on the tube did not do destructive testing mandatory requirements;
PSL2: J55 and K55 for all pipe shall be one or more of the criteria specified in 10.15.5 tested to find the inner surface of the outer surface of the pipe and can receive the level of L4 longitudinal imperfections.
