I want to know the specifications and details of API 5L regulation pertaining to Ultrasonic Testing of Pipe welds and Pipe body. What is the testing or defect criteria specified in the regulation for Automated or manual Ultrasonic testing. I know it mentions the N5 notch..Can anyone tell me what are the specifics of the N5 notch..

thanks

The best thing you get an API5L,from American Petrol Institut.Cost will app. 115-120US-Dollars,you can order through internet adress is http:// www.api.org.
There is in inner and an outer N5-notch dim. are width 0.04" max,depth 5%t(nom. wall)+/-15% with a min off 0.012" +/- 0.002" ,length for ultrasonic is 2" for max depth.
Normally the test pipe will supply by producer(pipe mill),should be sam grade and weight.For weld normally a 1/16" hole will be used.
With best regards Andreas Voge
