BS EN 10216-2:2014 is a technical standard that specifies the requirements for the manufacture, inspection, testing, and delivery of seamless steel tubes for pressure purposes. It is part of a series of European standards known as the EN 10216 series, which provides guidelines for various aspects of steel tube production.
Scope and Applications
The standard covers tubes made from non-alloy and alloy steels, with specified elevated temperature properties. These tubes are used in industries such as petrochemical, chemical, and power generation, where high-pressure and high-temperature conditions exist. The tubes can withstand internal pressures of up to several hundred bars and temperatures ranging from ambient to elevated levels.
To comply with BS EN 10216-2:2014, manufacturers must adhere to specific manufacturing requirements. These include using suitable methods for producing the steel tubes, ensuring consistent wall thickness, straightness, and surface condition. The tubes must undergo various tests, including visual inspection, dimensional checks, and mechanical testing to ensure they meet the specified requirements.
Inspection and Testing
BS EN 10216-2:2014 mandates the inspection and testing of the finished tubes before delivery. This includes conducting non-destructive testing methods such as ultrasonic testing, eddy current testing, or electromagnetic testing to detect any flaws or defects. Additionally, the mechanical properties of the tubes, such as tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation, must be verified through appropriate tests.
In conclusion, BS EN 10216-2:2014 outlines the requirements for seamless steel tubes used in high-pressure and high-temperature applications. Adhering to this standard ensures the reliability, quality, and safety of these tubes, which are vital components in various industries. Manufacturers must follow the specified manufacturing processes, conduct rigorous inspections and tests, and deliver products that meet the defined criteria to comply with this standard.
