Ajit,

Why do you want to inspect the pipes with this code? Most time, pipe are inspected as per ASME B31.1 or B31.3 depending on what will be flowing through them.

Ajit, E213 sets out a standard practice on testing of metal pipe and tubing. E213 clearly states that the details of the inspection are to be agreed upon by the using parties. It also states that it does not establish acceptance criteria. Since the options available (contact or immersion) are often determined by the size of the tubes or pipes or the quantities to be tested, you have to use some reasonable judgement. If you are "required" to use E213 for your applications then you should already have known that the probe(s) used is a variable that must be agreed upon and is not a predetermined. As such, it is not possible to provide an answer to your question.
