Large Diameter Specification- A409


This guide covers standard specification for straight seam or spinal seam electric-fusion-welded, light-wall, austenitic chromium-nickel alloy steel pipe for corrosive or high-temperature service. The sizes covered shall include NPS 14 to 30 with extra light (Schedule 5S) and light (Schedule 10S) wall thickness. Several grades of alloy steel shall be covered and shall conform to the required chemical composition for carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, titanium, columbium, cerium, and other elements. The chemical composition of the welding filler metal shall also conform to the requirements of the applicable AWS specification for the corresponding grade. Tensile properties of the plate or sheet used in making the pipe shall conform to the prescribed values of tensile strength and yield strength. Mechanical tests such as tension test and transverse guided-bend weld test shall be conducted. Pressure or nondestructive electric test shall also be performed.
