Scope

1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for polyamide-12 (PA12) materials, pipe and fittings for pressure or non-pressure oil and gas producing applications to convey fluids such as oil, dry or wet gas, multiphase fluids, and non-potable oilfield water. This specification does not cover pipe for gas distribution applications.

1.1.1 See Specification F2785 for PA12 pipe and fittings intended for use in the distribution of natural gas, or for use with liquefied petroleum gas.

1.1.2 Pipe and fittings covered by this specification shall not be joined using taper pipe threads. Butt fusion joining shall be done in accordance with Practice F3372. In-plant quality control programs are described in Appendix X1. Design considerations are discussed in Appendix X2.

1.2 Units—The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard

1.3 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
