API Gauge

Sharpfine offers American Petroleum Institute - API thread gauges.

We are able to provide special conical pipe thread gauges for the petroleum

industry,designed, manufactured and inspected according to the structural

dimensions of the parts.

API gauge API gauges API gauge conform:

API spec 5B

API Spec 7-2
API gauge
    API GAUGE--BCSG Butress Thread gauge
       API gauge
    API gauge with special BECO thread profiles.
    This kind of API GAUGE is a coarse thread mainly used in drill pipes for blasthole ´╝îmining or rock drilling.
