The need of transporting petroleum products has resulted in increased erosion of pipeline steel components. The effect of particle speed and impact angle on the erosion behavior of a newly developed pipeline steel (APIX120) is presented in this research work. Dry erosion test was performed on APIX120 steel using different particle velocities and various incident angles for different durations. The results indicate that particle velocity and incident angle have a significant influence on the erosion behavior of APIX120 steel. It is further noticed that at lower impact angle and particle speed, the plastic deformation, micro forging and embedment of the erodent particles on the surface of the target material is the predominant erosion mechanism while at high impact angle and particle speeds cutting of the target material surface is the dominant erosion mechanism. EDX results confirmed material transfer from the erodent to the target material during the erosion tests.
