ERW – API 5L Pipe Lines is one of the part under API category which defines the specification of the pipes.

API- 5l stands for particular properties specified under API charts like dimension, physical, mechanical and chemical properties of the steel.

We are regular supplier to IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, GAIL, OIL, EIL, and other companies in the field of OIL, PETRO and Gas.

API 5L similar Grades as per other standard

  • A53 Gr B and A106 Gr B are equivalent

Tolerance Abbreviation of the above chart

a — if the purchase order specifies a minus tolerance for wall thickness smaller than the applicable value given in this table, the plus tolerance for wall thickness shall be increased by an amount sufficient to maintain the applicable tolerance range.
b — for pipe with D ≥ 355,6 mm (14.000 in) and t ≥ 25,0 mm (0.984 in) the wall thickness tolerance locally may exceed the plus tolerance for wall thickness by an additional 0,05 t, provided that the plus tolerance for mass (see 9.14) is not exceeded.
c — The plus tolerance for wall thickness does not apply to the weld area.
