ASTM International - ASTM A450/A450M-04a
Standard Specification for General Requirements for Carbon, Ferritic Alloy, and Austenitic Alloy Steel Tubes
|Publication Date:||1 October 2004|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel pipes):||23.040.10|
1.1 This specification covers a group of requirements which, with the exceptions of 4.3 and Sections 5, 6, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23, are mandatory requirements to the following ASTM tubular product specifications:
|Title of Specification||ASTM Designation|
|Electric-Resistance-||A 178/A 178M|
|Seamless Cold-Drawn Low-Carbon Steel Heat-Exchanger and Condenser Tubes||A 179/A 179M|
|Seamless Carbon Steel Boiler Tubes for High-Pressure Service||A 192/A 192M|
|Seamless Medium-Carbon Steel Boiler and Superheater Tubes||A 210/A 210M|
|Electric-Resistance-||A 214/A 214M|
|Seamless and Electric-Welded Low-Alloy Steel Tubes||A 423/A 423M|
|Seamless Cold-Drawn Carbon Steel Feedwater Heater Tubes||A 556/A 556M|
|Seamless, Cold-Drawn Carbon Steel Tubing for Hydraulic System Service||A 822|
1.2 One or more of Sections 4.3, 5, 6, 17, 18, 19, 20, 20.1, 22, and 23 apply when the product specification or purchase order has a requirement for the test or analysis described by these sections.
1.3 In case of conflict between a requirement of the product specification and a requirement of this general requirement specification only the requirement of the product specification need be satisfied.
1.4 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. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the "M" designation (SI) of the product specification is specified in the order.
