In the subsection heat treatment, the length of the repeated heating is at least 300mm, at the same time, it is necessary to protect the outer part of the furnace, in order to prevent harmful temperature gradient.

Local heat treatment

When local heat treatment is applied weld joints, a circumferential band of the run pipe, and of the branch where applicable, shall be heated until the specified temperature range exists over the entire pipe section, gradually diminishing beyond a band which includes the weldment or the bent or formed section and at least 25mm beyond the ends thereof.
