TimkenSteel has added another quality certification to its list of credentials, receiving its American Petroleum Institute (API) Q1 certification in March. In addition, API has granted the company a license to apply the API 5CT monogram / number on TimkenSteel's alloyed seamless mechanical tubing products that fully comply with the specification requirements defined in API 5CT.
The certification, which is one of the most prestigious in the oil and gas industry, will give customers added assurance that TimkenSteel tubular products bearing the API-5CT monogram have been manufactured and tested to withstand the rigorous demands presented by the harsh environments of the oilfield.
"TimkenSteel provides customers with 100 percent made-to-order steel to meet their most demanding applications," said Ray Fryan, TimkenSteel's vice president of technology and quality. "We were already a single point for material, heat treat, machining and testing. Now, with the API Q1 certification and 5CT licensing, our customers can purchase with even more confidence, knowing our products meet API's highest standards and don't require additional certification or auditing. We can also help them save valuable project management and transportation time, reducing overall cost of ownership."
TimkenSteel API 5CT-certified products are available immediately, and include alloyed seamless mechanical tubing in the form of casing, coupling stock, pup joints, and coupling and accessory material (non-monogrammed).
