FOREWORD
This Indian Standard (Part 2) (Fourth Revision) wasadopted by the Bureau of Indian
after the draft finalized by the Steel Tubes, Pipes and Fittings Sectional Committee
approved by the Metallurgical
Engineering Division Council.

Standards,
had been

This standard was first issued in 1969. After reviewing the standard, the committee responsible for
preparation of the standard, had prepared a revision incorporating
the following major changes:
a) The scope has been modilied
to cover the requirements
of back nuts given in
IS 3468 : 1975 Specification for pipe nuts (firsf revi$ion).
In Table 3, requirements of
back nuts have been deleted since these are covered in the relevant standard.
b) A tlew_clause has been added to permit the manufacturer
to-make
plain-end fittings
without screwing.
c) Table 27 has been modified to cover both male taper thread size ( external ) and female
parallel thrcnd size ( internal ).
d) Expansion test and other requirements have been included for sockets on the basis of
IS 1239 (Part 1 ) : 1990 Mild steel tubes, tubulars and other wrought steel fittings Specification : Part I Mild steel tubes ($./I revisio,r ), to make the requirements for
sockets complete.
c) Amendments No. I and 2 issued to the standard have been incorporated.
Mallcnble cast iron pipe fittings are covered by IS 1879 : I987 Specification
for malleable cast
iron pipe fittings ( secorld revisiojr ).
The nominal bores specified in the standard and the corresponding nominal sizes of pipe threads
according to IS 554 : 1985 Dimensions for pipe threads where pressure tight joints are required
on the threads ( third revision ) are given in Annex B for information.
The standard keeps in view the manufacturing
and trade practice followed m the country in this
field. In preparing this standard assistance has been derived from the following publications:
BS 1387 : 1967 Specification
for steel tubes and tubulars (suitable
for screwing to
B. S. 21 Pipe threads ), issued by the British Standards Institution
( BSI ).
BS 1740 : 1965 Specification for wrought pipe fitting, iron and steel ( screwed B. S. P.
thread ), issued by the British Standards Institution
( BSI ).
For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with,
the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be
rounded off in accordance with IS 2 : 1960 Rules fdr rounding off numerical values (revised ).
The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be same as that of the
specified value in this standard.
