Other Mechanical tests as follows:

l  Flattening Test One flattening test shall be made on specimens from each end of one finished tube of each lot.

l  Flare Test (Seamless Tubes) One flare test shall be made on specimens from each end of one finished tube of each lot.

l  Flange Test (Welded Tubes) One flange test shall be made on specimens from each end of one finished tube of each lot.

l  Reverse Flattening Test For welded tubes, one re- verse flattening test shall be made on a specimen from each 1500 ft [460 m] of finished tubing.

l  Hardness Test Brinell or Rockwell hardness tests shall be made on specimens from two tubes from each lot (Note 3).

l  Impact Tests One notched-bar impact test, consisting of breaking three specimens, shall be made from each heat represented in a heat-treatment load on specimens taken from the finished tube.

ASTM A334 / ASME SA334 GR.6 tubes Hydrostatic or NDT test

Each A334 GR.6 tube shall be subjected to the nondestructive electric test or the hydrostatic test. The type of test to be used shall be at the option of the manufacturer, unless otherwise specified in the purchase order.

Heat Treatment

All A334 GR.6 seamless and welded tubes, other than Grades 8 and 11, shall be treated to control their microstructure in Accor- dance with one of the following methods:

  • Normalize by heating to a uniform temperature of not less than 1550°F [845°C] and cool in air or in the cooling chamber of an atmosphere-controlled furnace.
  • Normalize as in standard 10.1.1, and, at the discretion of the manufacturer, reheat to a suitable tempering temperature.
  • For the seamless process only, reheat and control hot working and the temperature of the hot-finishing operation to a finishing temperature range from 1550 to 1750°F [845 to 955°C] and cool in a controlled atmosphere furnace from an initial temperature of not less than 1550°F [845°C].
  • Treat as in 6.1.3 and, at the discretion of the manufacturer, reheat to a suitable tempering temperature.
