Terms and definitions defined in GB/T 222 and GB/T 30062 apply to this document.
4 Symbols
The following symbols apply to this document.
D: Nominal outer diameter.
S: Nominal wall thickness.
Smin: Minimum wall thickness.
5 Order content
A contract or order for ordering steel tubes under this document shall include, but not
be limited to, the following:
a) a reference to this document;
b) product name:
c) steel designation;
6.3.1 The curvature per meter of the steel tube shall meet the following requirements:
a) When the wall thickness is not greater than 15 mm, it is not greater than 1.5 mm/m;
b) When the wall thickness is greater than 15 mm, it is not greater than 2.0 mm/m.
6.3.2 The full-length curvature of the steel tube shall not exceed 0.15% of the length of
the steel tube.
6.4 Out-of-roundness and uneven wall thickness
According to the requirements of the buyer, if it is negotiated between the supplier and
the buyer, and indicated in the contract, the out-of-roundness and uneven wall thickness
of the steel tube shall not exceed 80% of the outer diameter allowance and wall
thickness allowance, respectively.
6.5 End shape
The end faces of the steel tube shall be perpendicular to the axis of the steel tube; the
burrs of the cut shall be removed.
6.6 Weight
6.6.1 Delivery weight
Steel tubes shall be delivered by actual weight. If it is negotiated between the supplier
and buyer, and indicated in the contract, it can also be delivered as per the theoretical
weight.
6.6.2 Calculation of theoretical weight
The theoretical weight of the steel tube is calculated according to the provisions of
GB/T 17395 (the density of steel shall be 7.85 kg/dm3). For steel tubes delivered as per
the nominal outer diameter and minimum wall thickness, the theoretical weight shall
be calculated by the average wall thickness. The average wall thickness is the average
of the maximum and minimum wall thicknesses calculated according to the wall
thickness and its allowable deviation.
6.6.3 Weight allowable deviation
According to the requirements of the buyer, if it is negotiated between the supplier and
the buyer, and indicated in the contract, the deviation between the actual weight and the
theoretical weight of the delivered steel tubes shall meet the following requirements:
a) Single steel tube: ±10%;
b) Each batch of steel tubes with a minimum of 10 t: ±7.5%.
7.2 Manufacturing method
7.2.1 Smelting method of steels
The steel shall be refined outside the furnace with an electric arc furnace and processed
by vacuum refining, OR refined outside the furnace with an oxygen converter and
processed by vacuum refining.
7.2.2 Manufacturing method of tube blank
The tube blank can be manufactured by continuous casting, die casting or hot rolling
(forging).
7.2.3 Manufacturing method of steel tubes
The steel tubes shall be manufactured by hot-rolled (expanded) or cold-rolled (drawn)
seamless method.
7.3 Delivery state
Hot-rolled (expanded) steel tubes shall be delivered in hot-rolled (expanded) state, and
cold-rolled (drawn) steel tubes shall be delivered in cold-rolled (drawn), normalized or
annealed state.
7.4 Mechanical properties
7.4.1 The supplier shall select one option from the following three options of
mechanical properties to provide mechanical properties for reference:
a) Mechanical properties option I: The mechanical properties measured from the
sample made of heat-treated steel tube blanks, refer to Appendix B for reference
values;
b) Mechanical properties option II: The mechanical properties measured from the
sample made of heat-treated steel tube blanks, see Appendix C for reference
values;
c) Mechanical properties option III: The mechanical properties report method
determined by the negotiation between the supplier and the buyer.

7.5.1 General
Steel tubes shall be subjected to a compactness test. The compactness test can be carried
out using hydraulic test or electromagnetic test, and the test method shall be selected
by the supplier.
7.5.2 Hydraulic test
When the steel tube is subjected to the hydraulic test, the test pressure shall be 5 MPa.
Under the test pressure, the voltage stabilization time shall be no less than 5 s; the steel
tube should not leak.
7.5.3 Electromagnetic detection
When the steel tube is subjected to eddy current or magnetic flux leakage testing, the
acceptance level shall comply with the provisions of GB/T 40080.
7.6 Non-metallic inclusions
Steel tubes shall be subjected to the detection of non-metallic inclusions. The non-
metallic inclusions of steel tubes are rated according to method A of GB/T 10561-2005.
The fine and coarse grades of Class A, Class B, Class C, and Class D inclusions shall
not be greater than 2.0, respectively; the inclusions of Class DS shall not be greater than
2.0.
7.7 Surface quality
7.7.1 There shall be no visible cracks, folds, breaks, delamination and scars on the inner
and outer surfaces of the steel tubes. These defects shall be completely removed; the
depth of removal shall not exceed 10% of the wall thickness; the actual wall thickness
of the cleaned part shall not be less than the minimum allowable wall thickness; the
removal part shall have a smooth transition.
7.7.2 The depth of the straight on the inner and outer surfaces of the steel tube shall
meet the following requirements:
a) For hot-rolled steel tubes, it shall not exceed 5% of the wall thickness and shall
not exceed 0.4 mm;
b) For hot-expanded steel tubes, it shall not exceed 0.5 mm;
c) For cold-rolled (drawn) steel tubes, it shall not exceed 4% of the wall thickness
and shall not exceed 0.2 mm.
