Standard Specification for General Requirements for Specialized Carbon and Alloy Steel Pipe
|Publication Date:||10 September 2002|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel pipes):||23.040.10|
Sections 4.3 or 19 are mandatory if the product specification has a
requirement for product analysis or flattening tests.
Section 20 is mandatory if the product specification has a hydrostatic
test requirement without defining the test parameters.
Section 12 is for information only.
In case of conflict between a requirement of the product specification
and a requirement of this general requirement specification, only the
requirement of the product specification need be satisfied.
Title of Specification ASTM
Designation (Footnote A)
Seamless Carbon Steel Pipe for High-Temperature A106
Seamless and Welded Austenitic Stainless Steel Pipe A312/A312M
Seamless and Welded Steel Pipe for Low-Temperature A333/A333M
Seamless Ferritic Alloy-Steel Pipe for High-Temperature A335/A335M
Footnote A - These designations refer to the latest issue of the respective specifications.
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the "M" designation (SI) of the product specification is specified in the order.
NOTE 1 - The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) has been substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as "nominal
diameter," "size," and "nominal size."
Footnote 2 - For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see
related Specification SA-530 in Section II of that Code.
