|Publication Date:||10 March 2003|
|ICS Code (Nickel and chromium products):||77.150.40|
This specification covers electric fusion welded pipe suitable for high-temperature or corrosive service as listed in Table 1. (Although no restrictions are placed on the sizes of pipe that may be furnished under this specification, commercial practice is commonly limited to sizes not less than 8 in. (203 mm) nominal diameter.)
Five classes of pipe are covered as follows:
Class 1 - Pipe shall be double welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes and shall be completely radiographed.
Class 2 - Pipe shall be double welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes. No radiography is required.
Class 3 - Pipe shall be single welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes and shall be completely radiographed.
Class 4 - Same as Class 3 except that the weld pass exposed to the inside pipe surface may be made without the addition of filler metal.
Class 5 - Pipe shall be double welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes and shall be spot radiographed.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
