DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

DSAW pipes mentioned in the API 5L standard is that two longitudinal weld seam must be at 180 deg?

RE: DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

Yes, see 8.7 of the specification.

RE: DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

However, don't confuse DSAW with double-seamed pipe.

DSAW is welded from the inside and outside of the pipe.

Double seamed pipe is two longitudinal welds, 180 deg apart.

Thanks for the information. So the DSAW pipe is meaning the two types LSAW PIPES and SSAW PIPES?

Have a read of 8.6 of the specification.

RE: DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

Having been on the API 5 committee ( long ago) , I don't remember DSAW ever being discussed as being pipe with two weld seams.

RE: DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

DSAW doesn't exist in API Spec 5L. The term "double seam pipe" does.

My 1995 Ed. of 5L agrees with SJones ; I guess I am senile .

RE: DSAW PIPE DETAIL -

No BS, you're not senile. Your in that forgetful stage that comes first that I can't remember what they call that ...

SSAW Pipe some may call DSAW pipe?

Perhaps, but SAWH (Helical) some may call SSAW (Spiral).
