Stainless Steel EFW Welded Pipe is a type of stainless steel pipes that is produced through electric fusion welding. The electric fusion welding is a process in which high voltage electricity is passed onto the material to heat and melt it. These pipes are welded by rolling the plates and welding the seam and then cleaning the weld flash with scarfing blades.
ASTM A 358/A 358M Electric-Fusion-Welded Austenitic Chromium-Nickel Alloy Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service.
Five Classes of pipes are covered :
ASTM A358 Class 1 - Pipe shall be double welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes and shall be completely radiographed.
ASTM A358 Class 2 - Pipe shall be double welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes. No radiography is required.
ASTM A358 Class 3 - Pipe shall be single welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes and shall be completely radiographed.
ASTM A358 Class 4 -Pipe Same as ASTM A358 Class 3 except that the weld pass exposed to the inside pipe surface may be made without the addition of filler metal.
ASTM A358 Class 5 - Pipe shall be double welded by processes employing filler metal in all passes and shall be spot radiographed.
