11.6 Pipe Threading Factory Marking Requirements—–All Groups
Pipes threaded by a factory other than the original pipe manufacturer shall have the threader’s name or trademark, specification marking and Section 11.5, Table C.67 or E. 67 listed thread sizes and types.
Unless the pipe has been pretested to the pressure values specified in Tables C.45~C.61 or Tables E.45~E.61 for the thread types shown in Tables C.45~C.61 and marked as specified in Table C.68 or Table E.68 The processing plant should mark the actual hydrostatic test pressure value on the pipe body.
For example: specification code 1 is 7, specification code 2 is 29.00, C95 long round thread coupling
Case 1) If the pipe manufacturer produces 177.8 m (7 in) UF (semi-finished) pipe, perform a hydrostatic test at 34.5 MPa (5000 psi) according to the inspector’s procedure document (see 10.12.3), and conduct the test on the pipe body If marked with P34.5 (P5000), then the thread maker should carry out the hydrostatic test at 60.5MPa (8800psi) and mark it according to Figure D.16.
Case 2) If the pipe manufacturer produces UF (semi-finished) pipe, the hydrostatic test is carried out at 61.0MPa (8900psi), and the pipe body is marked with P61.0 (P8900), and the thread processing plant does not need to carry out hydrostatic Test or mark the test pressure.
The pipe body markings used by the original pipe manufacturer shall not be removed or replaced.
The use of the letters “API” to determine or certify that threads on tubing conform to API Spec 5B is not permitted.
12 Coating and Protection
12.1 Coating —– all groups
12.1.1 Protective coating during transport
Unless otherwise specified by the purchaser, pipes and couplings shall be coated on the outside to prevent corrosion of the casing during transportation. The coating should be smooth, dense and not easy to fall off. The coating should protect the pipe from rusting for three months. If not specified by the purchaser in the order, the outer surface of the coupling blank need not be coated (bare) other than a protective layer over the paint print.
If the tube does not require coating or requires special coating, it should be indicated on the order. For orders requiring special coating, it should be indicated whether the coating is the full length of the pipe or the inner coating at a certain distance from the end of the pipe. Unless otherwise specified, uncoated parts should be coated with oil to prevent rusting during shipping.
Note: When 13Cr pipes are stored in a humid environment, local pitting corrosion will occur, so effective protective measures should be taken during coating, shipping and storage.
12.1.2 Coatings for long-term storage
By agreement between the supplier and the buyer, in order to prevent corrosion, especially when the pipe needs to be stored in an offshore environment for a long time, the inner and outer surfaces of the pipe need to be protectively coated.
The following shall apply:
—– Dryness of the tube
—– Cleanliness of the tube
—– Coating temperature
—– Thickness of coating film
