Flowline Equipment

Data Header

Commonly used in well testing operations, the data header is an instrumented piping "sub" for fluid data collection.

 

Construction:

  • Buttweld ends (mainly long pattern up to 2m).
  • Integral machined (mainly short pattern 0.5 to 1 m).

 

Port size & type:

½'' NPT – Straight or 45° to flow direction.

¾'' NPT – Straight or 45° to flow direction.

Autoclave - Straight or 45° to flow direction.

Other types and sizes per API 6A.

Notes:

  • ½" NPT threads are limited to 10000 PSI CWP
  • 45° to flow direction on long welded pattern only

 

Norms and Standards:

NACE MR 01-75,  AINSI B16-5, B31-3, API 6A. PED and CE compliance on request.

 

Pressure Rating:

Up to 20000 PSI for standard service.

Up to 15000 PSI for H2S service.

 

Temperature Rating:

Standard: -29°C (-20°F) to +121°C (+250°F).

Low temperature: -40°C (-40°F) to +121°C (+250°F).

High temperature: -29°C (-20°F) to +177°C (+350°F).

 

 

End connections & nominal size:

  • Wing Unions
  • Flanges (ANSI B16-5 or API 6A)
  • Hubs (API 16A or Clamp connector type)
  • Common sizes: 2", 3" and 4"

 

Options:

  • 4, 6 or 8-port connections depending on header style
