RADIOGRAPHIC TESTING - API 650





1. Vertical spot radiograph in accordance with API 650 one in the first 3 m (10 ft) and one in each 30 m (100 ft) thereafter, 25% of which shall be at intersections.



2. Horizontal spot radiograph in accordance with API 650 one in the first 3 m (10 ft) and one in each 60 m (200 ft) thereafter.



3. Vertical spot radiograph in each vertical seam in the lowest course. Spot radiographs that satisfy the requirements of Note 1 for the lowest course may be used to satisfy this requirement.

4. Spot radiographs of all intersections over 10 mm (3/8 in.)

5. Spot radiograph of bottom of each vertical seam in lowest shell course over 10 mm (3/8 in.)
