Spoolable Composite Pipe Testing - API15S
The history of oil and natural gas production has seen many innovative technologies develop to address the needs of the marketplace – leak-free, no corrosion, high pressures, rugged terrain etc. Spoolable composite pipe, described by the API15S standard, is a significant innovation that uniquely addresses the needs of energy production because it combines the beneficial attributes of plastic pipe with a much higher pressure capacity than any mono-layer plastic pipe.
As detailed in the API15S standard, extensive testing is required to qualify both the materials used and the final construction in order to ensure a durable pipe that is capable of being coiled for shipping efficiency while still providing a high pressure capability for many years of service life. Microbac Laboratories, Inc., Hauser Division has developed extensive capability to provide the required API15S testing – both for the materials of manufacturing and the finished products.
