How is the genre of seamless steel pipes divided?

China is a big steel country. Nowadays, the popularity of seamless steel pipes has made the Chinese manufacturing industry have more room for development. Next we will introduce you to our Wansteel seamless steel tubes, including models and sample pictures.

Seamless steel pipes (SMLS) is suitable for bending and flanging and it is formed by drawing a solid billet over a piercing rod to create the hollow shell, without welding or seam.  It is widely used for boiler and pressure vessel, automotive area, oil well, and equipment components because the most advantage is increasing the ability of withstanding higher pressure. And it can be cut, threaded or grooved. The coating method includes black / red lacquer, varnish painting, hot dip galvanization, etc.

API SPEC5CT-1999 (Casing and Tubing Specification):

It is compiled and published by the American Petroleum Institute (“AP”), is used worldwide. Among them: Casing: a pipe that protrudes into the well from the ground surface and is used as a lining of the well wall, and the pipes are connected by a coupling. The main materials are steel grades such as J55, N80, P110. And steel grades such as C90 and T95 which are resistant to hydrogen sulfide corrosion. Its low steel grade (J55, N80) can be welded steel pipe.

Tubing: A pipe that is inserted into the casing from the surface of the ground up to the oil layer, and the pipes are connected by coupling or integral. Its function is that the pumping unit transports oil from the oil layer to the ground through the oil pipe. The main materials are J55, N80, P110, and steel grades such as C90 and T95 which are resistant to hydrogen sulfide corrosion. Its low steel grade (J55, N80) can be welded steel pipe.

Seamless steel pipes can be divided into the following types due to their uses:
