Standard Specification for Steel Castings, Carbon, Suitable for Fusion Welding, for High-Temperature Service
|Publication Date:||1 May 2007|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel castings):||77.140.80|
This specification2 covers carbon steel castings for valves, flanges, fittings, or other pressure-containing parts for high-temperature service and of quality suitable for assembly with other castings or wrought-steel parts by fusion welding.
Three grades, WCA, WCB, and WCC, are covered in this specification. Selection will depend upon design and service conditions, mechanical properties, and the high temperature characteristics.
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
* A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
