1 American Piping Products S/A 106 spec Sheet A106 Pipe Specifications A/SA106. NPS 1/4"- 30". Schedules 10 through 160, STD, XH and XXH. Scope 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, flanging and similar forming operations. NPS 1-1/2" and under may be either hot finished or cold drawn. NPS 2" and larger shall be hot finished unless otherwise specified. Process Killed steel, with primary melting process being open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or electric-furnace, possibly combined with separate degassing or refining. Steel cast in ingots or strand cast is permissible.
2 Hot-finished pipe need not be heat treated. Cold-drawn pipe shall be heat treated after the final cold draw pass. Chemical Requirements Grade A Grade B Grade C. Carbon max. % *Manganese % to * to to Phosphorous, max. %. Sulfur, max. % Silicon, Chrome, max. % Copper, max. % Molybdenum, max. %. Nickel, max. % Vanadium, Total of Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, and V shall not exceed 1%. Permissible Variations in Wall Thickness The minimum wall thickness at any point shall not be more than under the nominal wall thickness specified. Permissible Variations in Weights per Foot Weight of any length shall not vary more than 10% over and under that specified. NOTE -- NPS 4 and smaller -- weighed in lots.
3 Larger sizes shall be weighed separately by length. Permissible Variations in Outside Diameter Outside Diameter at any point shall not vary from standard specified more than: NPS [DN Designator] Over Under in. mm in. m m 1/8 to 1-1/2 [6 to 40], incl 1/64 ( ) 1/64 ( ) 0. 4.

Number of Tests Required NPS On One Length from Each Lot of Tensile 5 and smaller 400 or less 6 and larger 200 or less 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 specified 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 Specified Tensile Test -- NPS 8 and larger -- either transverse or longitudinal acceptable Smaller than NPS 8 -- weighed in lots.
5 Larger sizes -- by length. Flattening Test -- NPS 2-1/2 and larger. Bending Test (Cold) -- NPS 2 and under.
