About This Item

 

Full Description

This specification covers dimensions, tolerances, and marking requirements for API threads and the gauges that control the acceptance criteria for the threads. Thread element gauges, instruments, and requirements for the inspection of threads for line pipe, round thread casing, round thread tubing, and buttress casing connections are included. All thread dimensions shown without specifications (or shown as NA) are not subject to inspection of diameter, ovality, and addendum. All thread dimensions shown without tolerances are related to the basis for connection design and are not subject to measurement to determine acceptance of product.

Thread inspection applies at the point of manufacture prior to shipment, to inspection at any intermediate point, to inspection subsequent to delivery at destination, and to inspection by inspectors representing the purchaser or the manufacturer. The manufacturer may, at his or her option, use other instruments or methods to control manufacturing operations; but acceptance and rejection of the product is determined by the results of inspection made in accordance with the requirements of this specification.

Thread inspection is performed using instruments designed to measure either the functional relationship of multiple thread elements or measure an individual thread element. The inspection requirements include measurements of standoff, diameter, ovality, addendum, taper, lead, height, and angle of thread that are applicable to threads having 11 1/2 or less turns per inch (0.45 or less turns per mm). Ring and Plug gauges are designed to measure the functional size of an internal or external thread. Individual thread elements listed are measured with one or more specific instruments.
