Charpy Testing 5L Pipe at -25F

Charpy Testing 5L Pipe at -25F

(OP)
I want to use API 5L X70, 18.00 in. O.D. X 0.75 in. Wall thickness pipe in an application at -25F. What can be the expected charpy results at -25F?

RE: Charpy Testing 5L Pipe at -25F

Do you require values higher than those of API 5L?

(OP)
No. I believe 5L requires 37 ft-lbs at 32F

RE: Charpy Testing 5L Pipe at -25F

18-inch X-70 only requires 27J (20 ft-lbs) at the test temperature, unless you are having to apply fracture arrest principles

Thank you, Steve. You are correct. Would you expect the same 27J to be found at -25F as at 32F per 5L?

RE: Charpy Testing 5L Pipe at -25F

27J is the minimum requirement. The answer as to whether you will get that at -25 deg F is: it depends upon whom the pipe is being purchased from

Provided that the Charpy requirements are clearly communicated with the order, quality pipe manufacturers will tailor steel purchase and pipe manufacturing to meet them.

Thank you, Steve.
Who are you favorite pipe makers? There is a lot of Chinese and Indian pipe out there and I am a bit leery.
