Fortunately, steel pipe manufacturers provide a special pipe grade that meets these requirements. These are known as X grade pipes.

A Brief Introduction to X Grade Pipes

X-Grade Pipe

X grade pipes are carbon steel pipes that come under the quality standards of API 5L. They are specifically designed for the safe transmission of oil and gas. They are a much stronger grade than pipes under the API designations A or B.

These pipes are differentiated into types with the designation X and a two digit number. The number refers to the minimum yield strength, which is normally recorded in Pounds per Square Inch (PSI). For example, if you are using pipe grade X42, this means that the minimum yield strength of the pipe will be 42PSI.

If you require X grade carbon steel pipes for the safe transportation of oil and gas, you need a distributor who can meet your every need. One of the leading distributors of X grade pipes in the United States is Arch City Steel & Alloy, Inc.
