ASTM A1097/A1097M-22

Standard Specification for Steel Casing Pipe, Carbon, Electric-Fusion (Arc)-Welded (NPS 10 and Larger)

1.1This specification covers electric-fusion (arc)-welded straight seam or spiral seam steel casing pipe NPS 10 (Note 1) and larger in diameter (outside diameter as specified by purchaser) with wall thickness 0.200 in. [5.1 mm] or greater. It shall be permissible to specify and furnish pipe having other dimensions provided such pipe complies with all other requirements of this specification. The pipe is intended for use as casing or encasement in horizontal underground boring, tunneling, or open trench applications.

1.2This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units; however, unless the purchase order or contract specifies the applicable M specification designation (SI units), the inch-pound units shall apply. The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. 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 nonconformance with the standard.

1.3The text of this specification contains notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. Such notes and footnotes, excluding those in tables and figures, do not contain any mandatory requirements.

1.4The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Sections 11, 12, and 13 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Note 1:The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) has been substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as "nominal diameter," "size," and "nominal size."

1.5This 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.
