API Spec 5CT Casing pipe

Standard: API SPEC 5CT

API 5CT pipe Size (mm):
  • Outer Dimensions: 6.0mm – 219.0mm
  • Wall Thickness: 1.0mm – 30 mm
  • Length: max 12000mm

Application: gas, water and oil transportation in both oil and natural gas .

The main steel grade of API 5CT:
  • API 5CT J55
  • API 5CT K55
  • API 5CT N80
  • API 5CT L80

API 5CT L80 Oilfield Casing And Tubing
API 5CT L80 Oilfield Casing And Tubing

Packing: Bare/bundles/crates/crate protection at the both sides of tubes or as per customers’ requirements .

This International Standard is applicable to the following connections in accordance with ISO 10422 or API Spec 5B:

  • short round thread casing (STC);
  • long round thread casing (LC);
  • buttress thread casing (BC);
  • extreme-line casing (XC);
  • non-upset tubing (NU);
  • external upset tubing (EU);
  • integral joint tubing (IJ).

For such connections, this International Standard specifies the technical delivery conditions for couplings and thread protection.

For pipes covered by this International Standard, the sizes, masses, wall thicknesses, grades and applicable end finishes are defined.

This International Standard may also be applied to tubulars with connections not covered by ISO/API standards.

Tech & Service of Seamless pipe

Seamless pipes are extensively applied for the nuclear device, gas, petrochemical, ship building and boiler industries. Seamless pipes dominates 65% of market share in Chinese boiler industry.

How to make seamless pipe(seamless pipe process)?
Hot Piercing Workshop
Piercing process
The cross roll piercing and pilger rolling process in the size range from approx. 250 to 660 mm outside diameter.
Precision cold drawn steel tube production process
Pipe weld cracks
often follow different mechanisms can be divided into two types of thermal cracking and cold cracking.
How to calculate a steel pipe and tube theoretic weight
Calculate a steel pipe?
Pipe fittings are necessary to join together pipes, or to change the direction of an existing pipe.
Pipe beveling
Pipe beveling is the process where an angle is formed between the edge of the end of a pipe or tube and a plane perpendicular to the surface.
Steel pipe cutting machine
Pipe cutting
Cutting tools have a grinding wheel piece cutting machine (also known as toothless saw), hand saw, cutter and other hand tools.
Packing the steel pipes
There are probably hundreds of different methods for packing a pipe, and most of them have merit, but there are two principles that are vital for any method.
