6.3 Example of an order
12 000 m tube with an outside diameter of D = 60 mm and an inside diameter of d = 56 mm in accordance with this document, made of steel grade E235 in the normalized condition, delivered in random lengths, with a 3.1 inspection certificate in accordance with EN 10204:
12 000 m tube – D 60 x d 56 – EN 10305-2 – E235+N – random length – inspection certificate 3.1
7 Manufacturing process
7.1 Steelmaking process
The steelmaking process is at the discretion of the manufacturer with the exception that the open hearth (Siemens-Martin) process shall not be employed unless in combination with a secondary steelmaking or ladle refining process.
Steels shall be fully killed.
NOTE This excludes the use of rimming, balanced or semi-killed steel.
7.2 Tube manufacture and delivery conditions
7.2.1 The tubes shall be manufactured from electric welded hollows by cold drawing. The tubes shall not contain strip end welds.
7.2.2 The tubes shall be supplied in one of the delivery conditions given in Table 1.BS 10305-2 pdf download.
