Burst TestA destructive hydraulic test employed todetermine actual yield strength and ultimatestrength of both seamless and welded pipe.Butt-weld Pipe
(See Continuous Weld)
CasingPipe used as a structural retainer for the wallsof a drilled hole.CADComputer aided designCAMComputer aided manufacturingCFTHundred foot (sometimes used in pricing, i.e.$425.97/cft vs. $4.2597/ft.)CNCComputer numerically controlled - refers tomachinery.ChamferA beveled surface to eliminate an otherwisesharp corner.Chemical PropertiesNormally associated with a limited number of chemical elements; however, depending uponthe specification, practically a full analysis maybe required. Minimum or maximum limits areestablished in Standards.Cold DrawnPipe or tubing which is pulled through a die toreduce diameter and wall. This process usuallyproduces closer tolerances and higher strength.CouplingThreaded sleeve used to connect two lengths of pipe.Cut LengthsPipe cut to a specific length as ordered.CWContinuous Weld a method of producing smalldiameter pipe (1/2 - 4")CWTHundred Weight. Often used in handling ortrucking pricing, i.e. .30/cwt load out charge or$1.65/cwt (freight) with a minimum such as30,000#.Die StampingPermanent marking placed on pipe as requiredby some specifications.Double Extra StrongStandard pipe weight designation (XXS).Sometimes described as XXH (double extraheavy).DriftMinimum ID clearance verified by pulling amandrel of known size through a length of pipe.
