the measures to avoid API steel pipe cracks and splits

HOME > blog
Due to API steel pipes have much lower impact strength and resistance in comparison to other pipes, extra care is required when we are handling API steel pipe and fittings. For example, pipe fittings, whether they are cartooned or loose, should not be tossed or thrown to the ground since they may easily break in that way. Factually, API steel pipe should not be dropped or dragged on the ground especially when the pipe is being unloaded from a truck. This is because there might be impact cracks, splits or scratches on steel pipe fittings and they can weaken or damage the pipe and fitting at the same time.

Heavy or sharp objects should not be thrown onto or against API steel pipe and fittings. On the one hand, pipe fittings are never be mixed in storage bins with other kinds of metal piping products. When we are handling API steel pipe with fork lift, we may only carry one pallet at a time. On the other hand, when we are using a hydraulic boom, we may use the API steel pipe cable for unloading so that chain slings should not be used. Instead, wide canvas or fiberglass slings should be used so as to protect API steel pipe and steel pipe fittings. Therefore, there will be enough placements on the pallet load to prevent sagging of a load of pipes.

The measures to API steel pipe over an entire completion flow back event has 95% confidence interval. Measurement and sampling includes in the interval so that the limited sample size dominates the overall uncertainty estimate. What’s more, there are top down approaches in the steel pipes and fittings. Minerals in Netherlands are the first to quantify API steel pipe resource stocks in all relevant compartments and thereby put primary and secondary resource on equal footing.

However, the trade flows might be neglected in some cases and it restricts severely the accuracy of steel pipe fittings. Generally, so far, few people pay attention to the analysis and interpretation of temporal patterns of API steel pipe in applications. In particular, it is interested in studying of steel pipe fittings, because it is the most widely used accessories of steel pipes worldwide. In other words, fittings constitute the technological fabric around which we have built a range of API steel pipe systems.
