Abter Steel Pipe is a professional industrial pipe manufacturer based in China, we have been producing pipe for a variety of applications, and covering areas of pipe manufacturing, exporting and trading. welcome to access our web:www.abtersteel.com
The steel grades of common oilfield API-5CT casing pipe include J55, K55, N80-1, N80Q, and P110. Casing pipe is mostly used for oil well drilling. In accordance with API-5CT and ISO11960 standard, pipes can be classified as STC (short thread), LTC (long thread) and BTC (buttress thread) accompanied with their couplings.
Production Process of API 5CT,J55 K55 seamless steel oil casing and tubing
Hot rolling (extruding seamless steel pipe): Circular tube billet→ Heating→ Piercing→ Three-roller skew rolling, tandem rolling or extrusion→ Tube knockout→ Sizing (or tubing reduction) → Cooling→ Straightening→ Hydraulic test (or flaw detection) → Marking→ Entering warehouse
