Standard Specification for Heat-Treated Carbon Steel Fittings for Low-Temperature and Corrosive Service
|Publication Date:||10 September 2000|
|ICS Code (Metal fittings):||23.040.40|
1.1 This specification covers heat-treated wrought carbon steel piping fittings with lowered carbon content of seamless and electric fusion-welded construction covered by the latest revisions in ANSI B16.9, ANSI B16.11, ANSI B16.28, MSS-SP-75, and MSS-SP-79. Fittings differing from these ANSI and MSS standards shall be furnished in accordance with Supplementary Requirement S58 of Specification A960. These fittings are for use in pressure components where inherent notch toughness and optimum sulfide-cracking resistance are required, such as oil and gas industry piping and distribution systems.
1.2 Optional supplementary requirements are provided for fittings when a greater degree of examination is desired. One or more of the supplementary requirements may be specified in the order.
1.3 This specification does not cover cast-welding fittings or fittings machined from castings.
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. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with this specification. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Unless the other specifies the applicable "M" specification designation (SI units), the material shall be furnished to inch-pound units.
