Description / Abstract:

SCOPE

1.1 COVERAGE

a. This specification covers PVC lined steel line pipe and tubing. Dimensions, materials and physical properties are included.

b. Technical content provides requirements for performance, materials, dimensions and weight; test and inspection; marking and storing.

NOTE 1: PVC lined accessories and fittings are available, but are beyond the scope of this specification. Consult the appropriate manufacturer regarding PVC lined accessories and fittings.

NOTE 2: Mortars and/or adhesives may be used in the fabrication of PVC lined steel line pipe and tubing.

1.2 APPLICATIONS

a. PRODUCTS. These specifications apply to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) lining of steel line pipe and tubing used as a barrier for shielding the steel from corrosion attack in the handling of oilfield fluids. Specific products covered by the specification are listed as follows:

1. Line Pipe

2. Tubing

b. SERVICE LIMITATIONS. The standard service conditions are as follows:

• Service temperature is 150°F maximum.

• Use of products covered by this specification should be limited to published industry data in the absence of tests for specific applications. A recommended chemical resistance table (Appendix A) lists general resistances to many specific chemical compounds at 0 psig for 72°F and 140°F. It is suggested test a be conducted for special pressurd temperature and multi-phase conditions.

• Gases under elevated pressure service conditions are not recommended.

• Special attention should be made toward, but not limited to certain aromatic chemicals, such as benzene, toluene, xylene and ketones.

1.3 GENERAL. This specification includes by reference, either in total or in part, other API, industry, and government standards listed in Appendix C.

a. REQUIREMENTS. Requirements of other standards included by references in this Specification are essential to the safety and of the equipment produced within a given system.

b. EQUIVALENT STANDARDS. Other nationally or internationally recognized standards shall be submitted to and approved by the API Committee on Standardization of Plastic Pipe for inclusion in this Specification prior to use as equivalent standards.

1.4 UNIT CONVERSIONS. U.S. Customary units are in all cases preferential and shall be the standard in this Specification. Nominal sizes will continue to be shown as fractions. For the purposes of this Specification the fractions and their decimal equivalents are equal and interchangeable. Metric conversions are described in Appendix D.
