API or CSA Grade plates
Qualitest has large amount of API or CSA Grade plates including API 5L X80 / CSA Z245.1 Grade 550 plates in various thickness for welding procedure (WPS /PQR) development & other purposes. If you need API 5L X80 / CSA Z245.1 Grade 550 plates, we can ship it to you on the same day or sooner the possible. If you are in Edmonton Alberta, or near by area, then you can come and pick-up the plates at any time. All the plates come with proper marking and MTR’s.
Though both specifications are intended to identify pipe production details for use in pipeline fabrication, the CSA version deals with many cold-temperature concerns (where API 5L is silent). There is no monogram license requirement for pipe Manufacturer, no composite index of approved Manufacturer, no legal requirements.
In fact, the pipeline design specification (CSA Z662) allows for use of CSA Z245.1 pipe, API 5L pipe, ASTM grade pipe, etc. provided that the material properties have been determined by a professional engineer as appropriate for that service. CSA Z245.1 pipe is not listed for use in ASME BPVC or ASME B31.X piping systems, so it would need to be multi-certified or approved by the local pressure vessel authority prior to use in these applications.
Though CSA Z245.1 has its own tables for product dimensions, the table is vastly identical to that of ASME B36.10, especially as they refer to normal schedules of pipe (STD, XS, XXS, and numbered schedules). Therefore, Z245.1 pipe products are often multi-certified to similar ASTM and API 5L grades, where the requirements of all these specifications are met. Note that the Z245.1 spec requires that the pipe have metric dimensions stated (Canada formally adopted the metric system in the 1970s), though nominal pipe size and schedules are still very commonly used.We have large quantity of of ASME SA537 Class 2 plates in various thickness for welding procedure development & other purposes. If you need ASME SA537 Class 2 plates, we can ship it to you on the same day or sooner. If you are in Edmonton Alberta, or near by area, then you can come and pick-up the plates at any time. All the plates come with proper marking and MTR’s. Also, our price is very reasonable too. Also, our price is very reasonable too.
