NOTES: Grades X70 through X80 chemistry requirements must be agreed upon between purchaser and manufacturer.
Chemistry: We can produce precise tolerances with maximum sulfur contents of 0.005 to enhance corrosion resistance in sour service applications. We can also provide reduced residual element grades to produce carbon equivalent (IIW) maximums of 0.40 to enhance weldability.

​Dimensions, Lengths, End Finishing Quantities ​

Dimensions

​Wall tolerance – per API 5L PSL2. Upon request, we can produce to +/-10%.
O.D. tolerance – per API 5L PSL2 (+0.062”/0.015”)

​Lengths​Standard API lengths of Double (35’-45’) and Single Randoms (17.5’-22.5’) are provided. Restricted lengths i.e., 38’ – 42’, available upon request.
Surface Finish​Bare or UV* Coated. *MSDS can be provided upon request.
​End FinishPl​ain End Beveled or Plain End Square Cut.
NDE​Non Destructive Examination (NDE) can be provided by Electro Magnetic Inspection (EMI) diverted flux method or through Ultrasonic (UT) inspection. Pipe can be inspected with N5 notches to provide a cleaner surface for fusion bond epoxy coating applications. Walls < .500” receive an EMI inspection and walls > .500” receive a UT inspection.
Hydrotest​Vallourec Star performs at the alternate test pressure per API 5L for 5 seconds. Test pressures are set at 75-85% of specified minimum yield strength (SMYS). Higher hold times and SMYS can be technically reviewed.
​Mill Test Reports​Meets the requirements of API 5L SR15.
Order & Shipping​Minimum of 5 tons per OD & Wall combination.
Quantity​Truck shipments must have 20 – 22 tons per load (maximum 4 sizes per truck). Rail shipments must have 75-80 tons per load (maximum of 6 sizes per railcar).
