Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Alloy Steel, Molybdenum
|Publication Date:||30 July 1982|
|ICS Code (Steels for pressure purposes):||77.140.30|
This specification2 covers molybdenumalloy steel plates, intended particularly for boilers for stationary service and other pressure vessels.
Material under this specification is available in three grades having different strength.
The maximum thickness of plates is limited only by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements; however, current practice normally limits the maximum thickness of plates furnished under this specification.
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.
