Seamless and welded steel tubes for pressure purposes -- Ultrasonic testing of tube ends for the detection of laminar imperfections
This standard has been revised by ISO 10893-8:2011
Specifies requirements for full peripheral ultrasonic testing. Is intended to detect, over a zone at the ends of plain end and bevelled end tubes, laminar imperfections which may interfere with subsequent fabrication operations (e.g. welding, ultrasonic inspection of welds, etc.). Is applicable to the inspection of tubes with an outside diameter greater than 30 mm. No lower limit of thickness is specified but, for thicknesses less than 5 mm, difficulties can be experienced.
A standard is reviewed every 5 years
