The testing of buried defect generally uses methods such as radiographic or
ultrasonic testing as specified in NB/T 47013. When radiographic or ultrasonic
testing is not possible at the inspection site, it may use other effective methods
of testing. For the piping which is subjected to the first inspection, it shall
perform the testing of buried defects according to the sampling inspection ratio
as specified in Table 2-2 (note 2-2). For the next inspection, the testing of buried

When the total thinning amount of the piping components exceeds 20% of the
nominal thickness, or when the inspectors have doubts about the strength of
the piping, it shall verify the pressure strength. The pressure for verification shall
be not less than the allowable (monitoring) use pressure of the piping. The
verification of pressure strength is carried out in accordance with the
requirements of the corresponding piping design standards. Stress analysis

less than 450 °C, after running for 8 x 104 h, according to the running
status of the piping, randomly inspect the hardness and metallographic
structure. The time and proportion of the next sampling inspection are
determined according to the inspection result;
(3) For the piping which has been equipped with the creep measuring point,
check whether the creep measuring record meets the relevant standards;
(4) For the power piping which has been operated for more than 2 x 105 h, if
it is found through inspection that the metallographic spheroidization,
creep damage or material aging grade, creep strain, creep rate exceed
the requirements of the relevant standards, it shall be treated or replaced

safety technical specifications or design and installation standards, if it
cannot be adjusted or repaired in time, for the piping which does not bear
obvious alternating load and from which no new defect is found through
periodic inspection (excluding normal uniform corrosion), it can be rated
as grade 2 or grade 3; otherwise it shall perform safety assessment. If
the results of safety assessment confirm that it does not affect the safe
use, it can be rated as grade 2 or grade 3; otherwise it is rated as grade

is clear, the strength check is qualified, no new defect is detected after
inspection (excluding normal uniform corrosion), the inspectors believe
that it can be used safely, it does not affect the rating. If defects occur
during the process of use and it confirms that such defects are caused
by improper use of material, it may be rated as grade 3 or grade 4;
(2) When material is unknown, if the inspection does not reveal new defects
(excluding normal uniform corrosion) and the strength check is qualified
(calculated according to the lowest strength of similar materials), it may
be rated as grade 3; otherwise it is rated as grade 4;
(3) When the material is deteriorated and damaged, meanwhile it is found
that there is material deterioration such as surface decarburization,
carburization, spheroidization, graphitization, tempering embrittlement,
damage such as creep, high-temperature hydrogen corrosion, or
abnormal hardness value, if the deterioration or damage is slight and it
can be confirmed that it can be safely used under the operating
conditions and during the inspection cycle, it may be rated as grade 3; if
it produces irreparable defects or damage, according to the degree of
damage, it is rated as grade 3 or grade 4;
(4) When the hardness value in the wet H2S environment exceeds the
standard, meanwhile the hardness value of the welded joint of carbon-
steel and low-alloy steel piping exceeds HB200 but no stress corrosion
occurs, if the inspectors believe that stress corrosion will not occur in the
next inspection cycle, it may be rated as grade 2 or grade 3; otherwise it
is rated as grade 4.

When the wall-thickness of piping and fitting is completely reduced, it shall
personnel. The approval personnel shall be the technical principal or authorizer
of the inspection institute.
Inspection records and inspection reports (single item report) shall be signed
by the personnel who participate in the inspection and testing on site. The
inspection institute shall keep the inspection records and inspection reports at
least until the next inspection cycle.
4.2 Initial conclusions of inspection
Due to the need of piping operation, the inspector may, before issuing the report,

Appendix C), notice the user organization of the initial conclusion of inspection
in a written manner. The inspector shall be responsible for the correctness of
the inspection opinions.
4.3 Special requirements for handling of problem
When finding the presence of defects which need to be handled during
inspection, the inspection institute may issue the “Notice on the periodic
inspection opinions for special equipment (2)” (see Appendix C), notice the
inspection conditions to the user organization. The user organization is
responsible for entrusting the organization with corresponding qualifications to
handle the defects. After the defects are handled and they are confirmed by the
inspection institute that the handling results comply with the use requirements,
it issues the inspection report. If the user organization fails to complete the
defect handling work within the agreed time, the inspection institute may issue
a periodic inspection report according to the actual inspection situation. The
report can be issued after finishing the handling work and it is confirmed by the
inspection institute.
When the inspection reveals a serious accident, the inspection institute shall
issue the “Notice of periodic inspection opinions for special equipment (2)”,
inform the situations to the use registration authority in a timely manner.
