HSC® Chengdu gets API 5CRA certification
5 May, 2021

HSC® is proud to announce that the Chengdu factory has passed the API CRA and is now capable of supplying API certified corrosion resistant alloy Tubing and Casing and accessories for the most stringent well condition with the highest alloy grades.

API 5CRA serves as the leading industry standard for corrosion resistant alloy seamless pipe for casing, tubing, and coupling stock. It was first issued in 2010 and reaffirmed in 2015. The API 5CRA spec is currently an identical document to the ISO specification 13680 titled “Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries – Corrosion-Resistant Alloy Seamless Tubes for use as Casing, Tubing, and Coupling Stock – Technical Delivery Conditions.” These specifications provide the following quality control requirements to manufacture:

  • Manufacturing Processes
  • Traceability
  • Chemical Composition
  • Mechanical Properties
  • Microstructure
  • Surface Condition
  • Dimensions
  • Non-Destructive Evaluation
  • Testing and Inspection Procedures
  • Product Marking
  • Certification

Only 5 factories in China have managed to get this certification and only 25 in the world.
