Pipe & fittings Standards

With the rapid expansion in the global trade, standardization of various products has become an essential requirement. The standards given to various products significantly contributes towards increasing international trade which in turn bridges the quality gap between the manufacturers, producers and buyers of different nations.

ASTM vs. ASME vs. API vs. ANSI

Standards organizations impacting steel piping

Standards and industry go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other.

Internal and External Anti-corrosion steel pipe Standard

Anti-corrosion steel pipe is processed through the preservation process, which can effectively prevent or slow down the process in the transport and use of chemical or electrochemical corrosion reaction of steel pipe.

EN 10305

EN 10305 European standard specifies the technical delivery conditions for seamless cold drawn steel pipe of circular cross-section used in hydraulic and pneumatic power systems.



Seamless pipes Execution Standard

It can also be used for structural applications; hollow pipe is far stiffer per unit weight than solid members. Seamless pipe is thought to be able to withstand higher pressure, higher temperatures, higher mechanical stress and a corrosive atmosphere. It can be found in a wide range of applications such as in oil and gas, refinery, petrochemical, chemical, fertilizer, power, automotive, bearing, mechanical and structural.

The production of our seamless pipes is tightly regulated and all of the pipes we stock have been fully tested to international standards to ensure we only supply the highest quality products.

What is a Mill Test Certificate?

A Mill Test Certificate (MTC), or Mill Test Report (MTR), is issued by a manufacturer to certify the chemical and mechanical features of a product and its compliance to the applicable norms and technical specifications. Typically, Mill Test Certificates conform to the EN 10204 standard and are related to steel products.

MILL TEST CERTIFICATE

A mill test certificate to EN 10204 shows, generally, the following information:

  • Type of certificate and standard (example EN 10204 3.1 or EN 10204 3.2)
  • Manufacturer name
  • Product name and dimensions
  • Quantity covered by the certificate (example: tons, with heat numbers)
  • Heat numbers and batch number (physically shown on the product as well)
  • Final test result
  • Dimensional measurements, to check compliance with allowed tolerances (example, for steel pipes: diameter, wall thickness, length, straightness)
  • Material grade and applicable specification, including results of chemical and mechanical tests
  • Results of additional tests, like hydrostatic, ultrasounds (UT), hardness, impact test, magnetic particles, metal graphic result etc.
