About This Item


Full Description

Please note that any addenda or errata may not be included in translated editions of this standard.

This document provides alternative connection assembly procedures to those found in API 5B (power turns) and those found in API 5C1 (optimum torque). The procedures set forth are referred to as "torque-position" because the make-up torque and final position are used as acceptance criteria for the assembly operation. The connections are threaded in accordance with API 5B. The torque-position assembly parameters have been developed for most SC (short round thread casing), LC (long round thread casing), BC (buttress thread casing), and EU (external upset tubing) connections.

Torque-position is a precision assembly method that relies on a controlled process for successful implementation. When defined threading and assembly procedures are followed, the performance of the resulting assembled connection is optimized.
