A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Asuperscript epsilon ( e ) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. 1. Scope* 1.1 This specification 2 covers electric-fusion-welded steelpipe with filler metal added, fabricated from pressure vesselquality plate of several analyses and strength levels andsuitable for high-pressure service at atmospheric and lowertemperatures. Heat treatment may or may not be required toattain the desired properties or to comply with applicable coderequirements. Supplementary requirements are provided foruse when additional testing or examination is desired.1.2 The specification nominally covers pipe 16 in. (405mm) in outside diameter or larger and of   1  ⁄  4  in. (6.4 mm) wallthickness or greater. Pipe having other dimensions may befurnished provided it complies with all other requirements of this specification.1.3 Several grades and classes of pipe are provided.1.3.1 Grade designates the type of plate used as listed in Class designates the type of heat treatment performedduring manufacture of the pipe, whether the weld is radio-graphically examined, and whether the pipe has been pressuretested as listed in Class designations are as follows (Note 1): Class Heat Treatment on Pipe Radiography,see SectionPressure Test,see:10 none none none11 none 9 none12 none 9 8.313 none none 8.320 stress relieved, see 5.3.1 none none21 stress relieved, see 5.3.1 9 none 22 stress relieved, see 5.3.1 9 8.323 stress relieved, see 5.3.1 none 8.3 30 normalized, see 5.3.2 none none31 normalized, see 5.3.2 9 none 32 normalized, see 5.3.2 9 8.333 normalized, see 5.3.2 none 8.3 40 normalized and tempered, see 5.3.3 none none41 normalized and tempered, see 5.3.3 9 none 42 normalized and tempered, see 5.3.3 9 8.343 normalized and tempered, see 5.3.3 none 8.3 50 quenched and tempered, see 5.3.4 none none51 quenched and tempered, see 5.3.4 9 none 52 quenched and tempered, see 5.3.4 9 8.353 quenched and tempered, see 5.3.4 none 8.3 60 normalized and precipitation heattreatednone none61 normalized and precipitation heattreated9 none62 normalized and precipitation heattreated9 8.363 normalized and precipitation heattreatednone 8.370 quenched and precipitation heattreatednone none71 quenched and precipitation heattreated9 none72 quenched and precipitation heattreated9 8.373 quenched and precipitation heattreatednone 8.3 N OTE  1—Selection of materials should be made with attention totemperature of service.
