Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, Low- and Intermediate-Tensile Strength
|Publication Date:||1 November 2017|
|ICS Code (Flat steel products and semi-products):||77.140.50|
This specification2 covers carbon steel plates of lowand intermediate-tensile
Plates under this specification are available in three grades having different strength levels
The maximum thickness of plates is limited by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements.
NOTE 1-For killed carbon steels only, refer to the following ASTM specifications:3
A299/A299M Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, Manganese-Silicon.
A515/A515M Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, for Intermediate- and Higher-Temperature Service
A516/A516M Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, for Moderate- and Lower-Temperature Service
For plates produced from coil and furnished without heat treatment or with stress relieving only, the additional requirements, including additional testing requirements and the reporting of additional test results, of Specification A20/A20M apply.
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.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
