API - Nosecone wear indicator
Liquip

Liquip’s API-NCFG is an industry first nosecone wear gauge which clearly shows the level of wear on any API nosecone that is manufactured to API RP1004 and EN 13083 standard.

  • Made from grade 304 stainless steel for durability and longevity.
  • Multiple measurements allow you to see where in the allowable tolerance the API nosecone is.

Operation (Text provided on unit)

#1 - API RP1004 & EN 13083 Maximum Nose Size
This gauge is at the upper tolerance of the standard. If this gauge does not fit over, loading couplers may not connect.

#2 - API RP1004 & EN 13083 Nominal Nose Size
This gauge is at the mid tolerance of the standard and indicates a nosecone in the ideal working condition.

#3 - API RP1004 & EN 13083 Minimum Nose Size
This gauge is at the lower tolerance of the standard. If this gauge fits over, the nosecone has worn outside the standard.

#4 - Half Worn - Recheck Regularly
This gauge indicates a nosecone with 0.4mm wear beyond the lower tolerance of the standard. It is possible for a coupler to disengage itself from a nosecone of this size.

#5 - Worn - Replacement Recommended.
This gauge indicates a nosecone with approx 0.8mm wear beyond the lower tolerance of the standard. It is not uncommon for a coupler to disengage itself from a nosecone of this size.
