The API 5L X60 PSL2 Welded Pipe is known to offer better performance in comparison to PSL1. This is because in comparison to PSL1, the API 5L X60 PSL 2 has a requirement for a much stricter inspection. I addition to being strictly inspected in comparison to the API 5L X60 PSL1 Line Pipe, PSL2 pipes of this particular standard need to adhere strictly to both, the chemical composition as well as the mechanical performance requirements. The specified API 5L Grade X60 Steel Pipe Line manufacture needs to also include the hydraulic pressure test, and standards are not permitted to non-destructive generation of hydraulic pressure. It is important to note that a non-destructive inspection is not required for API 5L X60 PSL1, while each PSL2 API 5L X60 Pipe needs to mandatorily go through a non-destructive examination one by one.
The X grade format, in the API specification is always followed by two digit number. This two digit number represents the pipe’s PSI minimum yield strength in thousands i.e. in 000’s psi, which has been produced. For example, in the API 5L X60 PSL1 Seamless Pipe, the yield strength of these pipes is around 60,000 PSI. Our clients for the API 5L X60 Seamless Pipe industries such as petroleum, petrochemical, as well as natural gas. In fact, the API 5L X60 PSL2 ERW pipes are used in the above mentioned industrial sectors in the transportation of various media. The properties of these pipes along with stringent quality checks conducted in our factory make the API 5L X60 ERW Pipe well suited in being used for applications such as the conveyance of various mediums such as gas, water, and oil from the site to refineries.
