The process of Lsaw steel pipe:
Plate feeding → Edge Milling and Beveling → Board Probe → Edge Crimping →molding→Slag→Track Pre-Welding → Tab Welding → Inside Welding → Slag → Outside Welding → Tab Removal → Ultrasonic Inspection → X-ray Inspection → Mechanical Expansion → Flame Flat → Hydro-static Testing → Ultrasonic Inspection for pipe end and welding seam → Weld and Pipe End X-ray Inspection → Tube end weld grinding → End Facing and Beveling → Weighing and measuring → Spray paint Marking → Final Inspection → Storage → Storage and Shipment
A252 Comparitive Specifications
ASTM Specification A252 describes nominal (average) wall steel pipe piles of cylindrical shape and applies to pipe piles in which the steel cylinder acts as a permanent load-carrying member or as a shell to form case-in-place concrete piles.
Surface imperfections exceeding 25% of the nominal wall in depth are considered defects. Defects not exceeding 22.5% of the nominal wall in depth may be repaired by welding. Before welding, the defect shall be completely removed.
