Addendum 1 to Threading, Gauging, and Thread
Inspection of Casing, Tubing, and Line Pipe Threads

Note: This Addendum contains the corrections from the April 9, 1998 Errata as well as balloted revisions
to API Spec 5B.

Page 3: Replace existing 4.1.6 with the new 4.1.6 and 4.1.7 below and renumber the
remaining paragraphs.

4.1.6 Internal Threads

The root of the coupling thread shall start within the area of the ID chamfer and extend to
the center of the coupling. The length of thread in the box end of integral-joint tubing shall
not be less than

L

4

+

J

from the face of the box. The internal threads within the interval from
the recess or counterbore to a place located at a distance

J

+ one thread turn from the center
of the coupling, or from the small end of the thread in the box of integral-joint tubing, shall
conform to the requirements of Sect. 4.

4.1.7 Thread Finish

The threads in steel coupling for line pipe nominal sizes 2 and large and in all sizes of cas-
ing and tubing couplings shall be zinc or tin electroplated or phosphated to minimize galling
and develop the maximum leak resistance characteristics of the connection. Either the box or
the pipe male end of accessories and integral-joint tubing shall be zinc or tine electroplated,
or phosphated, or processed by some other acceptable method which will minimize galling
and develop the maximum leak resistance characteristics of the connection. Where tin, or
other ductile coating in excess of 0.001 in. are used, the thread tolerance and standoff apply
only to the uncoated threads. In some instances, coatings in excess of 0.001 in. thickness are
being used and accurate gauging is impractical. The maximum thickness of electroplated tin
coatings shall not exceed 0.006 in. Taper, standoff and OD dimensions may be affected by
power tight makeup. Deviations from the specied tolerance for these dimensions may be
expected after power tight makeup.

Single Dial Buttress Thread Form Gage

5.1.32 Denition

This ages is used for checking the actual tooth thickness (amount of shave) of both exter-
nal and internal buttress casing threads near the pitch line. The contact points for the form
gage shall be ball points of 0.87 in. diameter truncated 0.023 in. Before use, the dial indicator
shall be adjusted to zero using a setting standard.

5.1.33 Procedure

After the gage is properly veried against the setting standard, place the point of the gage
in the thread groove starting at the small diameter. With the anvil of the gage contracting the
thread crests (always over full crested threads), pivot the gage on the rounded anvil edge
through a small arc. Ensure that that base is in a line parallel to the thread axis. Take the read-
ing at the point where the indicator hand reaches the highest position. Check the remaining
threads in the required intervals in the same axis line clock position (last perfect thread). IF
threads have imperfect crests shift to the last threads having a full crest.
