WELDING ENDS

Welding ends shall conform to the appropriate designs


shown in ANSI B3IA, Figure 434. 8.6(a)-A or B, or in ANSI
B31.8 App. I, Figures 14, 15 unless otherwise required by the
manufacturer's
written specification. The welding ends shall
have all burrs removed from both inside and outside edges.

FLANGED ENDS

End flanges shall be furnished with raised face or ring-joint


face. Dimensions, tolerances, finishes including drilling templates, flange facing, spot facing, and back facing for flanges
NPS 24 and smaller, but excluding NPS 22, shall conform to
SI B 16.5. Dimensions and tolerances for flanges for NPS
22 and for ~
2fj and larger shall conform to ~1SS SP-44.
Ring-joint end flanges JDa}' be furnished either raised or full
face, Other types of end flanges mzy be used per
manufacturer's V1~
specificc:::ion..

TEMPERATURE RATINGS

a. The temperature range shall be established and marked on


the fitting identification plate.
b. For service temperatures below -20Of (-29"C), materials
shall be certified in accordance with the appropriate ASrM
material specifications for low temperature service.
c. Maximum service temperature may be limited by either
the nonmetallic seal ring or the metal used in the fitting. If the
metal is the limiting temperature factor, the Maximum Operating Pressure in Table 1 of this specification shall be derated
as required for the specific materials listed in ASME Section
VITI, Division 1.

DIMENSIONS

The inside diameter throughout the bore of all fittings


not be less than the nominal inside diameter of the matching
pipe minus 1/16 inch (1.6 mm).

MANUFACTURER'S HYDROSTATIC TEST

a. All fittings shall be subjected to a minimum hydrostatic


test equal to or greater than 1.5 times the maximum operating
pressure rating. There shall be no visible leakage or hannfuJ
inelastic deformation under the test pressure.
b. All cast components and welds must be free of paint or
lacquer during hydrostatic testing.
c. If fitting weld ends are welded for hydrostatic testing, all
weld metal and at least 3/16 inch [4.8 mm] of base metal must
be machined off the weld end. No welding or machining
(other than weld end preparation) shall be done on a fitting
after hydrotest unless either the entire unit is retested, or all
weld areas pass subsequent NDE.
d. During the manufacturer's
hydrostatic test, the closed
end(s) must not be restrained by fixtures such that the pressure load is not fully carried by the fitting under test.
