Steel pipe sizes around the world are standardized on historic dimensions that are now referred to as Nominal Pipe Sizes (NPS).
In addition to standardizing the nominal outside diameter (OD), a series of standard wall thicknesses was developed years ago and these were labeled as Schedules (SCH). The units for both of NPS and SCH are dimensionless. A larger number indicates a larger OD size or a heavier wall thickness. A typical description might look like 4 NPS SCH 40. In this case this description indicates a nominal OD of 4.500” (114.3 mm) and a nominal wall thickness of 0.237” (6.02 mm). Through 8 NPS, the nominal dimensions for both carbon alloy and stainless alloy pipe are the same. In larger sizes, there are differences in some nominal wall thicknesses.
Historically, the dimensions for smaller diameter pipe were such that the inside diameter (ID) of what are now known as SCH 40 thicknesses were very close to the OD size designator. In the example above, the nominal ID is actually 4.026” for 4 NPS. As it became possible to make lighter (and heavier) wall thicknesses, the schedule of sizes was expanded. The sizes are standardized in ANSI B36.10 for carbon pipe and in ANSI B36.19 for stainless and nickel alloys.
Pipe tolerances will depend on the alloy and the standard to which it was produced. The general requirement standard covering most stainless pipe is ASTM/ASME A/SA 999. The OD under tolerance on all sizes is -0.031”. The over tolerance increases with OD size but for the range of 1-1/2 to 4 NPS the plus tolerance is also 0.031”. This introduces the concept of ovality, where if the pipe exhibited both the maximum and minimum OD permitted, it would be out of round (oval) by 0.062”. An additional ovality allowance is permitted for thin wall pipe which is defined as a pipe where the nominal wall is 3% or less of the OD. In such a case, the OD tolerance range applies to the mean OD and the ovality is permitted to be 1.5% of the OD. (See Inset).
Only the minimum wall thickness is limited, which is -12.5% of the nominal wall. There is no maximum wall thickness limit. For seamless pipe, there is a limit of 10% by weight (mass) over the nominal weight. Note that this limits the average wall thickness of the seamless pipe to being no more than 10% heavy, but does not limit the specific maximum wall thickness at any given point. There is no maximum thickness or weight limit for welded pipe.
Tolerances are also provided for stainless pipe on straightness (1/8” in 10’) and for cut lengths (-0, +1/4”). Notice that there is no requirement or tolerance for the ID.
The tolerances for most nickel alloy welded pipe are identical or very similar to those for stainless. The general requirements for nickel alloy welded pipe are contained in ASTM/ASME B/SB 775. General requirements for seamless nickel alloy pipe are published in ASTM/ASME B/SB 729. Because nickel alloys are more difficult to hot work, tolerances for hot finished pipe are more generous than for stainless steel or welded and cold finished nickel alloy products.
