HIC test is not required for each coil? Why

HIC test is not required for each coil? Why

HIC test is not required for each coil? Why

(OP)
in the manufacturing of the pipe (sour) it is not required to test each coil or each heat number for the coil? API 5l

WHY????

iS IT ENOUGH TO TEST THE HEAT NUMBER ONLY??? i NEED SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THIS TEST hic

RE: HIC test is not required for each coil? Why

1.0   Usually the first and last pipe/plate of each heat is
      HIC tested.

2.0   The orientation of the specimens is illustrated in
      NACE-TM0284 however, I usually require one set of
      specimens taken from the center of the plate/pipe for
      both HIC & Mechanical Testing.

3.0   I stipulate that in the event of failure of the test  
      for the materials in any heat the entire lot from that
      particular heat shall be rejected and retesting shall
      not be permitted.

4.0   NACE-TM0284 does not outline acceptance criterion.  I
      usually outline the following:

 4.1  Surface blistering is acceptable
 4.2  Longitudinal Crack Thickness (LCT) shall not exceed
      0.1mm
 4.3  Transverse or stepwise Crack Thickness (TCT) shall
      not exceed 0.1mm
 4.4  Crack Length Ratio (CLR) shall not exceed 5% (average
      of 3 sections)
 4.5  Crack Thickness Ratio (CTR) shall not exceed 3%
     (average of 3 sections)
 4.6  Crack sensitivity Ratio (CSR) shall not exceed 1.5%  
      (average of 3 sections)

5.0  I usually require the use of Solution "A", although it
     wouldnt be such a bad idea to consider using NACE-  
     TM0177 test solution :) and the following material
     requirements:

 5.X  Maximum hardness value of 180 BHN

 5.1  The welded pipes shall be to API 5L Gr.B for wall
      thickness up to 1.25”.

 5.2  Thickness above 1.25”, the welded pipes shall be
      ordered to ASTM A672 Gr.C60  

 5.3  The maximum carbon equivalent shall be 0.38%
      calculated on the basis of product analysis using the
      formula contained in supplementary requirement S20.2
      of SA20.

 5.4  Maximum phosphorus content shall be 0.012% by product
      analysis

 5.5  Sulphur content shall be a maximum of 0.003% by
      product analysis and shall be inclusion shape
      controlled

 5.6  Supplementary requirement S2.1 of SA 20 shall apply
      to product analysis.

 5.7  Supplementary requirement S21.1 of SA 20 shall apply
      to trace elements. In addition, the maximum Calcium
      content shall be 0.005% and the Ca/S ratio shall be
      greater than or equal to 1.5 when S is greater than
      0.0015%. Also, the Al : N ratio shall be greater than
      or equal to 2 : 1.   

 5.8  Plates shall be ultrasonically tested to ISO 10124
      with acceptance level B3. The examination shall be
      continuous over 100% of the plate. In the event of
      any recordable indications, the location of these
      shall be traced through fabrication. Recordable
      indications shall clear main seam of nozzle welds by
      a minimum of 75 mm

P.S I dont see the need to HIC test seamless pipes if they
    meet the material specification requirements.

Cheers,

RE: HIC test is not required for each coil? Why

I missed, fittings and weld consumables; let me know if you need any feedback on that

 

RE: HIC test is not required for each coil? Why

(OP)
Dear PVRV:

what you wrote is more more than enough...i have question about taking sample from the center of the plate or pipe! whay do you required the center.

Also, if you do not mind, can you give me more about fittings and weld consumables?

thanks alot

one more thing:

why do u reqire solutuin A?

RE: HIC test is not required for each coil? Why


1.    
Segregation causes a variance in material properties and occurs during solidification.  Areas most prone to Phosphorus and Sulfur impurities are usually at the center.

2.1    
Steel used for pipes (seamless), fittings and flanges shall be fully killed, made to fine grain practice.

2.2    
All fittings shall be ordered to seamless when available in the required size, irrespective of whether line piping is seamless or welded.

2.3    
All materials shall be tested to evaluate the resistance to hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC) as outlined above. (Previous Post)

Cheers,

Let me know if you require any further elboration.
