John Bell Pipeline now has X65 pipe in stock as well as the complementary F52/F60 & F65 flanges and WPHY 60 & WPHY 65 dual certified fittings.
Global pipeline equipment supplier John Bell Pipeline have joined forces with parent company National Tube Stockholders to stock over 100,000 tonnes of X65 pipe products in north-east England and north-east Scotland, with daily deliveries throughout the UK. X65 is a very niche product grade which is used where there is high pressure and highly corrosive environments, usually Subsea or similar. John Bell Pipeline are one of a few stockists out of the whole of the UK.
In 2012 John Bell Pipeline became part of the global Bianco Group of companies allowing shared access to stock at their Aberdeenshire facility. Initially specialising in linepipe and pipeline equipment John Bell Pipeline have expanded their scope of supply to include X65 pipe as well as the complementary F52/F60 & F65 flanges and WPHY 60 & WPHY 65 dual certified fittings.
Working in synergy with parent company National Tube Stockholders Ltd, John Bell Pipeline services customers north of the border with daily deliveries of X65 products. All X65 products are Charpy impact tested. Pipe is available in single and double random lengths certified to PSL 2 and 3.2 verified. Up to 1422mm diameter ‘X’ grade pipe is available within group stock with a pipe cutting service available to all customers.
Mark Anderson, Sales Manager commented “Since 2014 we began stocking X65 pipe to accommodate the demand of the local and national market. With addition of the complementary fittings and flanges we can supply the complete package to our customer base north of the border. X65 products are renowned in the Oil & Gas industry for their superior corrosion and mechanical properties. Applications such as Subsea environments are popular with X65 and its complimentary fittings and flanges. We have seen a very positive response from our customers and will continue to invest in larger and tailored quantities of stock at our Aberdeenshire facility, which already holds approximately 20,000 tonnes, for quick turnaround from order to delivery.
