1.1 This specification covers furnace-butt-welded, black, plain-end or threaded-end, steel pipe for use in the conveyance of fluids under pressure. Pipe in sizes NPS ½ to 4, inclusive, with nominal wall thickness 0.350 in. [8.9 mm] or less, as given in ASME B36.10M is included. Pipe having other dimensions, in this size range, may be furnished provided such pipe complies with all other requirements of this specification.
1.2 For plain-end pipe, it is intended that the pipe be capable of being circumferentially welded in the field when welding procedures in accordance with the requirements of the applicable pipeline construction code are used.
1.3 The values stated in either inch-pound units or in SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system is to be used independently of the other.
