Tri-Star Industries subsidiary Alloy Technology is pleased to announce it has been granted API Spec 20E and 20F Monogram approval from the American Petroleum Institute (license number 20E-0014 and 20F-0011), in addition to API Spec Q1 manufacturing certification.
Alloy Technology specialises in high-integrity bolting for the critical subsea industry, and is the first and only company in Asia to hold both the API 20E and 20F accreditation.
API Spec 20E/ 20F specifies requirements for the qualification, production and documentation of alloy, carbon and stainless steel bolting used in the petroleum and natural gas industries.
The 20E/ 20F standard defines three categories of bolting specification levels (BSL); material critically is divided into BSL-1, BSL-2 and BSL-3, in which BSL-3 is addressing the highest level of stringency in meeting technical, quality and qualification criteria.
API Spec 20E and 20F certify procurement, production and inspection processes for all sizes of roll threaded studs and all sizes of fully machined bolts, screws, nuts and other fasteners.
It is becoming a standard requirement for fasteners used in subsea applications to meet API 20E and 20F standards.
Tri-Star Industries is ahead of its game in leading the industry in meeting the highest specifications, and continues to be a standard-bearer for the subsea, petroleum and natural gas industries.
