NPS 1/4″- 30″

Schedules 10 through 160, STD, XH and XXH

ASTM A106 seamless pressure pipe (also known as ASME SA106 pipe) is
commonly used in the construction of oil and gas re neries, power plants,
petrochemical plants, boilers, and ships where the piping must transport uids
and gases that exhibit higher temperatures and pressure levels.

ASTM A106 Seamless Pressure Pipe (also known as ASME SA106 pipe) covers
seamless carbon steel nominal wall pipe for high-temperature service. Suitable
for bending, anging and similar forming operations.

NPS 1-1/2″ and under may be either hot nished or cold drawn. NPS 2″ and
larger shall be hot nished unless otherwise speci ed.

Killed steel, with primary melting process being open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or
electric-furnace, possibly combined with separate degassing or re ning.

Steel cast in ingots or strand cast is permissible.

Hot- nished pipe need not be heat treated.

Bending 2 and smaller 400 or less

Flattening 2 through 5 400 or less

6 and over 200 or less

Hydrostatic Testing
Inspection test pressures produce a stress in the pipe wall equal to 60% of
speci ed minimum yield strength (SMYS) at room temperature. Maximum
Pressures are not to exceed 2500 psi for NPS3 and must stay under 2800 psi for
the larger sizes. Pressure is maintained for not less than 5 seconds.

Mechanical Tests Speci ed
Tensile Test — NPS 8 and larger — either transverse or longitudinal acceptable
Smaller than NPS 8 — weighed in lots. Larger sizes — by length. Flattening Test
— NPS 2-1/2 and larger. Bending Test (Cold) — NPS 2 and under.

Degree of Bend Diameter of Mandrel

For Normal A106 Uses 90 12 x nom dia. of pipe

For Close Coiling 180 8 x nom dia. of pipe

See our full list of pipe testing services.

Lengths required shall be speci ed on order. No “jointers” permitted unless
otherwise speci ed. If no de nite lengths required, following practice applies:
