• XLW-GT Connector Gas Testing

    Description

    For gas tight surface applications that require a metal-to-metal internal pressure seal, XL Systems offers the XLW-GT wedge thread connection. Testing has been completed up to 95% of actual X80 pipe body internal pressure ratings to ISO 13679 CAL I-E (with gas) requirements. The following sizes have been tested: 

    • 20 x 0.750 X80 XLW-GT
    • 22 x 1.00 X80 XLW-GT
    • 22 x 1.25 X80 XLW-GT
     The CAL I-E qualification requires the testing of two samples:
    • The first sample (ISO Specimen 1) is machined to an extreme tolerance, worst case sealing configuration and make-and-break tested. Upon completion, seal performance of this sample is then verified through a series of tests that include two-quadrant combined load with bending (ISO Series B), four-quadrant combined load (ISO Series A), and limit load to failure.  
    • The second sample (ISO Specimen 5) is machined to an extreme tolerance, worst case galling configuration. This sample undergoes make-and-break testing only to verify resistance to galling.
