This specification covers seamless and electric-resistance-welded steel pipe used as conduit for the installation of high-pressure pipe-type electrical cables in NPS 4 to NPS 12, inclusive, with nominal (average) wall thicknesses 0.219 to 0.562 in., depending on size. The steel shall be made by one or more of the following processes: open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or electric-furnace. Tensile strength tests, flattening test, hydrostatic tests shall be made for the materials to conform the requirements as specified. If the results of the mechanical tests do not conform to requirements specified, retests shall be made.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers seamless and electric-resistance-welded steel pipe used as conduit for the installation of high-pressure pipe-type electrical cables in NPS 4 to NPS 12, inclusive, with nominal (average) wall thicknesses 0.219 to 0.562 in., depending on size. Pipe having other dimensions (Note 2) may be furnished, provided such pipe complies with all other requirements of this specification.

Note 1The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) has been substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as “nominal diameter,” “size,” and “nominal size.”
Note 2A comprehensive listing of standardized pipe dimensions is contained in ANSI B36.10.

1.2 Pipe ordered under this specification is suitable for welding and for forming operations involving flaring, belling, and bending.

1.3 Pipe for this purpose shall be furnished in Grade A or Grade B as specified in the purchase order. Grade A is more suitable for forming operations involving bending, flaring, or belling and this grade is normally preferred. This provision is not intended to prohibit the cold bending, flaring, or belling of Grade B pipe.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.5 The following hazard caveat applies to the test method portion, Section 20, of this specification: 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.
