Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 July 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Pipeline components and pipelines in general): 23.040.01
significance And Use:

The exposed metal surfaces at joints, fittings, and damaged areas in an otherwise coated pipeline will be subjected to corrosion if allowed to come in contact with the soil environment. The... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method describes determination of the comparative corrosion preventative characteristics of materials used for applications to joints, couplings, irregular fittings, and patched areas in coated pipelines. The test method is applicable to materials whose principal function is to act as barriers between the pipe surface and surrounding soil environment.

1.2 The test method described employs measurements of leakage current, capacitance, and dissipation factor to indicate changes in the insulating effectiveness of joint and patching materials.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 The values stated in SI units to three significant decimals are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
