ASTM A733 – 03(2009)e1 Standard Specification for Welded and Seamless Carbon Steel and Austenitic Stainless Steel Pipe Nipples
ASTM A733 Standard Specification covers welded and seamless carbon steel and austenitic stainless steel pipe nipples. The mechanical requirements stated that, pipe nipples shall be made from new, hydrostatic tested or NDE-tested pipe, pipe and nipples shall be threaded on both ends with NPT taper pipe threads. The standard and special lengths and sizes of nipples are presented. Galvanized nipples ordered under this specification shall be made from pipe coated on the inside and outside by the hot dip process. Samples of nipples sufficient to determine their conformance with the requirements of this specification shall be taken at random for each lot of nipples of the same pipe size, length, and material, also, samples shall be inspected to determine their conformance with the dimensional requirements, including thread dimensions.
