Standard Specification for Chromium and Chromium-Nickel Stainless Steel Plate, Sheet, and Strip for Pressure Vessels and for General Applications
|Publication Date:||1 November 2013|
|ICS Code (Steels for pressure purposes):||77.140.30|
This specification2 covers chromium, chromium-nickel,
Some steels covered by this specification, especially the chromium steels, because of their particular alloy content and specialized properties, may require special care in their fabrication and welding. Specific procedures are of fundamental importance, and it is presupposed that all parameters will be in accordance with approved methods capable of producing the desired properties in the fmished fabrication. Satisfactory welded pressure vessels have been produced in some thicknesses of all these steels.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
