  Designation: A 523 – 96  An American National Standard Standard Specification for Plain End Seamless and Electric-Resistance-Welded SteelPipe for High-Pressure Pipe-Type Cable Circuits 1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation A 523; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of srcinal adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Asuperscript epsilon ( e ) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. 1. Scope 1.1 This specification covers seamless and electric-resistance-welded steel pipe used as conduit for the installationof high-pressure pipe-type electrical cables in NPS 4 to NPS12, inclusive, with nominal (average) wall thicknesses 0.219 to0.562 in., depending on size. Pipe having other dimensions(Note 2) may be furnished, provided such pipe complies withall other requirements of this specification. N OTE  1—The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) hasbeen substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as “nominaldiameter,” “size,” and “nominal size.”N OTE  2—A comprehensive listing of standardized pipe dimensions iscontained in ANSI B36.10. 1.2 Pipe ordered under this specification is suitable forwelding and for forming operations involving flaring, belling,and bending.1.3 Pipe for this purpose shall be furnished in Grade A orGrade B as specified in the purchase order. Grade A is moresuitable for forming operations involving bending, flaring, orbelling and this grade is normally preferred. This provision isnot intended to prohibit the cold bending, flaring, or belling of Grade B pipe.1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regardedas the standard.1.5 The following hazard caveat applies to the test methodportion, Section 20, of this specification:  This standard doesnot purport to address all of the safety problems, if any,associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of thisstandard to establish appropriate safety and health practicesand determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 2.

Heat Analysis 6.1 When specified in the purchase order, the manufacturershall report the heat analysis of each heat of steel used in themanufacture of pipe to this specification. The analysis shallconform to the requirements specified in Section 5 for thegrade of pipe ordered. 7. Product Analysis 7.1 When specified in the purchase order, a product analysisreport shall be furnished by the manufacturer on two pipesfrom each lot of 400 lengths, or fraction thereof, of 4 1  ⁄  2 -in.outside diameter and 5 9  ⁄  16 -in. outside diameter sizes and fromeach lot of 200 lengths, or fraction thereof, of each size 6 5  ⁄  8 -in.outside diameter through 12 3  ⁄  4 -in. outside diameter pipe.Samples for chemical analysis, except for spectrographicanalysis, shall be taken in accordance with Method E 59. Thechemical composition thus determined shall conform to therequirements specified in Section 5.7.2  Product Analysis Retests —If both lengths of pipe rep-resenting the lot fail the specified product analysis, the lot shallbe rejected, or at the option of the manufacturer, all of theremaining lengths of the lot shall be tested individually forconformance to the specified requirements. If only one of thelengths of pipe representing the lot fails the specified check analysis, the lot shall be rejected or, at the option of themanufacturer, two retest analyses shall be made on twoadditional lengths selected from the same lot. If both of theseretest analyses conform to the specified requirements, the lotshall be accepted except for the length which failed on theinitial analysis. If one or both of the retest analyses fail thespecified requirements, the entire lot shall be rejected, or, at theoption of the manufacturer, each of the remaining lengths shallbe tested individually. Only analysis of the rejecting element orelements is necessary in checking the remaining lengths. 8. Tensile Requirements 8.1 The material shall conform to the requirements as totensile properties prescribed in Table 1.8.2 The yield point shall be determined by the drop of thebeam or by the halt in the gage of the testing machine, by theuse of dividers, or by other approved methods. When a definiteyield point is not exhibited, the yield strength corresponding toa permanent offset of 0.2 % of the gage length of the specimenor to a total extension of 0.5 % of the gage length of thespecimen under load shall be determined.8.3 The test specimen taken across the weld shall show atensile strength not less than the minimum tensile strengthspecified for the grade of pipe ordered. This test will not berequired for pipe under NPS 8. 9. Flattening Test Requirements 9.1  Seamless Pipe —For seamless pipe, a section not lessthan 2 1  ⁄  2  in. (63.5 mm) in length shall be flattened cold betweenparallel plates in two steps. During the first step, which is a testfor ductility, no cracks or breaks on the inside or outside or endsurfaces, except as provided for in 9.5, shall occur until thedistance between the plates is less than the value of   H  calculated by the following equation:  H   5  ~ 1 1 e ! t e 1 t  D (1) where:  H   5  distance between flattening plates, in.

(101.6 mm) in length shall be flattened cold betweenparallel plates in three steps with the weld located either 0 or90° from the line of direction of force as required in 9.2.1during the first step, which is a test for ductility of the weld, nocracks or breaks on the inside or outside surfaces shall occuruntil the distance between the plates is less than two thirds of the srcinal outside diameter of the pipe. As a second step, theflattening shall be continued. During the second step, which istest for ductility exclusive of the weld, no cracks or breaks onthe inside or outside surfaces, except as provided for in 9.5,shall occur until the distance between the plates is less than onethird of the srcinal outside diameter of the pipe but is not lessthan five times the wall thickness of the pipe. During the thirdstep, which is a test for soundness, the flattening shall becontinued until the specimen breaks or the opposite walls of thepipe meet. Evidence of laminated or unsound material or of incomplete weld that is revealed during the entire flattening testshall be cause for rejection.9.2.1 For pipe produced in single lengths, the flattening testspecified in 9.2 shall be made on both crop ends cut from eachlength of pipe. The tests from each end shall be madealternately with the weld at 0° and at 90° from the line of direction of force. For pipe produced in multiple lengths, theflattening test shall be made on crop ends representing the frontand back of each coil with the weld at 90° from the line of direction of force, and on two intermediate rings representingeach coil with the weld 0° from the line of direction of force.9.3 Surface imperfections in the test specimen beforeflattening, but revealed during the first step of the flatteningtest, shall be judged in accordance with the finish requirementsin Section 15.9.4 Superficial ruptures as a result of surface imperfectionsshall not be cause for rejection.9.5 When low  D -to- t   ratio tubulars are tested, because thestrain imposed due to geometry is unreasonably high on theinside surface at the 6 and 12 o’clock locations, cracks at theselocations shall not be cause for rejection if the  D -to- t   ratio isless than 10. 10. Coatings 10.1 Unless otherwise specified, the pipe shall not be givena mill coating of paint, oil, or any other material either insideor outside. 11.
