API Integral-Joint tubing Recommended Torque Table

Fluids Design Engineering Data

API IJ integral-joint tubing is available in OD sizes of 1.315 to 2.063 in. API integral-joint tubing has a 10-round form with a joint strength that is less than the body minimum yield, which restricts its use. The small OD of integral-joint tubing permits its use inside larger tubing strings or in wells as unloading or vent strings. The couplings should meet all the minimum requirements outlined in API Spec. 5CT. API Spec. 5B3 and API RP 5B14 cover threading, gauging, and thread inspection.
