    ASTM A134

    Abstract

    This specification covers electric-fusion (arc)-welded straight seam or spiral seam steel pipes with diameters NPS 16 and larger. The materials for these pipes as well as the welding procedure shall conform to other ASTM standards listed herein. This standard also contains requirements for the permissible weight and dimension variations and pipe lengths.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers electric-fusion (arc)-welded straight seam or spiral seam steel pipe NPS 16 and over in diameter (inside or outside as specified by purchaser), with wall thicknesses up to 3/4 in. (19.0 mm), inclusive. Pipe having other dimensions may be furnished provided such pipe complies with all other requirements of this specification.

    Note 1Acceptability for many services may be controlled by codes or standards such as those published by the American National Standards Institute and American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
    Note 2For testing methods not specifically covered in this specification, reference can be made to Test Methods and Definitions A370, with particular reference to Annex A2 on Steel Tubular Products.
    Note 3A comprehensive listing of standardized pipe dimensions is contained in ANSI B 36.10.

    1.2 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.

    Note 4The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) has been substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as “nominal diameter,” “size,” and “nominal size.”

    1.3 The following caveat pertains specifically to Section 5 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.
