ASTM International - ASTM A447/A447M-93(2003)
Standard Specification for Steel Castings, Chromium-Nickel-Iron Alloy (25-12 Class), for High-Temperature Service
|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel castings):||77.140.80|
1.1 This specification covers iron-base, heat-resisting alloy castings of the 25% chromium, 12% nickel class, intended for structural elements, containers, and supports in electric furnaces, petroleum still tube supports, and for similar applications up to 2000°F [1095°C]. The purchaser should inform the manufacturer when the service temperatures are to exceed 1800°F [980°C].
1.2 In the absence of significant proportions of elements other than those prescribed in Section 4, the two types of alloys covered by this specification may in general be distinguished as follows:
1.2.1 Type I- Alloys characterized by relatively low limiting creep stress at temperatures between 1500 and 2000°F [815 and 1095°C], and relatively high ductility at ordinary temperatures after aging for short periods at temperatures between 1300 and 1500°F [705 and 815°C].
1.2.2 Type II- Alloys having relatively high limiting creep stress but which may develop low ductility at ordinary temperatures when aged for short periods at temperatures between 1350 and 1500°F [730 and 815°C].
1.3 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.
