d. Annular packing units.

e. Hydraulic connectors.

f. Drilling spools.

g. Adapters.

h. Loose connections.

i. Clamps.

1.2.2 Interchangeability

Dimensional interchangeability is limited to end and outlet connections.

1.2.3 Service Conditions

Service conditions refer to classifications for pressure, temperature and wellbore fluids listed in 4.2 for which the equipment will be designed.

1.3 PRODUCT SPECIFICATION

This specification establishes requirements for products listed in 1.2.1.

1.4 UNITS AND DIMENSIONING

For the purposes of this specification, the decimal/inch system is the standard for the dimensions shown in this specification. API Size Designation will continue to be shown as fractions.
