1.2 Pipe and tube shall be supplied in the solution annealed and descaled condition. When atmosphere control is used,
descaling is not necessary.
1.3 This specification is limited to tubes up to and including 3.5 in. (88.9 mm) outside diameter.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate
Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for theDevelopment of International Standards, Guides and Recom-mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

4. ASTM B622 General Requirements
4.1 Material furnished under this specification shall conform to the applicable requirements of Specification B829
unless otherwise provided herein.
5. ASTM B622 Ordering Information
5.1 It is the responsibility of the purchaser to specify all requirements that are necessary for the material ordered under
this specification. Examples of such requirements include, but are not limited to the following:
126.96.36.199 Tube—Outside diameter, minimum or average wall thickness, and length.
188.8.131.52 Pipe—Standard pipe size and schedule (AppendixX2).
5.1.3 Ends—Plain ends cut and deburred will be furnished.
5.1.4 Certification—State if certification or a report of test results is required (Section 15).
5.1.5 Samples for Check Analysis—State whether samples for check analysis should be furnished.
5.1.6 Purchaser Inspection—If the purchaser wishes to witness tests or inspection of material at the place of
manufacture, the purchase order must so state, indicating which tests or inspections are to be witnessed (Section 14).
6. ASTM B622 Chemical Composition
6.1 The material shall conform to the composition limits specified in Table 1.
6.2 If a product (check) analysis is made by the purchaser, the material shall conform to the requirements specified in
Table 1 subject to the permissible tolerances in accordance with Specification B829.
7. ASTM B622 Mechanical Properties
7.1 The mechanical properties of the material at room temperature shall conform to those shown in Table 2.
8. Hydrostatic Test or Non-Destructive Electric Test
8.1 Each pipe or tube shall be tested by the manufacturer by either hydrostatic or a non-destructive electric test in accordance with Specification B829. Hydrostatic testing at a pressure greater than 1000 psi may be performed upon agreement between the purchaser and manufacturer or at the option of the manufacturer provided that the allowable fiber stress per Specification B829 is not exceeded.
9. ASTM B622 Weight
9.1 For calculation of mass or weight, the following densities shall be used:
10. ASTM B622 Sampling
10.1 Lots forChemical Analysis andMechanical Testing are as defined in Specification B829.
10.2 Sampling ofChemical Analysis:
10.2.1 A representative sample shall be taken from each lot during pouring or subsequent processing.
10.2.2 Product (check) analysis shall be wholly the responsibility of the purchaser.
10.3 Sampling for Mechanical Testing:10.3.1 A representative sample shall be taken from each lot of finished material.
11. ASTM B622 Number of Tests and Retests
11.1 Chemical Analysis—One test per lot.
11.2 Tension Test—One test per lot.
11.3 Retests—If the specimen used in the mechanical test of any lot fails to meet the specified requirements, two additional specimens shall be taken from different sample pieces and tested. The results of the tests on both of these specimens shall meet the specified requirements.
12. ASTM B622 Specimen Preparation
12.1 Tension test specimens shall be taken from material after final heat treatment and tested in the direction of fabrication.
