ASTM A587-89a/ASME SA-587 

(ASTM A 587 - 89 a / ASME SA - 587 /ASTMA587-89a/ASMESA-587) 

This standard2 is issued under the fixed designation A 587; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon ( ε) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. 


1.1 this specification covers electric-resistance-welded low-carbon steel pipe intended for use as process lines. 

1.2 Pipe ordered under this specification shall be suitable for severe forming operations involving flanging in all sizes and bending to close radii up to and including NPS 4. 

1.3 This specification covers NPS 1/2 through 10, plus additional sizes. The coresponding outside diameters and wall thicknesses for NPS 1/2 through 10 are listed in Table 4, as are the dimensions for the additional sizes. 

NOTE 1¦¡The dimensionless designator NPS (nominal pipe size) has been substituted in this standard for such traditional terms as "nominal diameter," "size," and "nominal size." 

1.4 the values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. 

1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 6, 12
and 13, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, of any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
