    Tolerance for wall thickness

    Hi

    I want to ask...............How to calculate the wall thickness for pipe including the tolerance mil (table 11) as per as API 5L 44Th Edition ( October 2008).


    Regards

    When I calculate the wall thickness, I take the smallest POSSIBLE thickness. If the published thickness was 0.25" and mill tolerance was 12.5%, I would use (1-.125)*.25"=0.21875" as the smallest thickness.

    If I was calculating the thickness of the pipe based on 31.1, 31.3, 31.8, etc. , I would make sure I chose a pipe (don't forget to subtract mill tolerances, thread allowances, if needed and corrosion allowances) whose thickness was greater than the calculated thickess above.

    am I confusing?

    Question offset between 2 longitudinal seam

    Dear All members,

    I would like to know what is the permissible limit of offset when joining between 2 welded pipe(longitudinal seam). ASME VIII clearly stated but B31.3 silent on it. Any other reference, code or recommended practice that i can refer to it. If any could you share with me. Thank in advance for you cooperation

    Regards

    Please see the following CR4 Thread with a solved example per ASME code indicating how to calculate the min. pipe wall thickness, taking into consideration the tolerance:

    The pipe wall thickness tolerance as per API 5L is in accordance with Table 9, see the following CR4 Thread :
