Standard Specification for Steel, Sheet, Carbon, and High-Strength, Low-Alloy for Pressure Vessels
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
|ICS Code (Steels for pressure purposes):||77.140.30|
|ICS Code (Flat steel products and semi-products):||77.140.50|
1.1 This specification2 covers hot-rolled carbon steel sheet for pressure vessels involving fusion welding or brazing. Welding and brazing technique is of fundamental importance and shall be in accordance with commercial practices.
1.2 The following grades are included in this specification:
|Grade||Yield Strength, min||Tensile Strength, min|
| A |
| 25 |
| 170 |
| 45 |
| 310 |
1.3 Hot-rolled carbon steel sheet is generally furnished in cut lengths and to decimal thickness only. Coils may be furnished, provided tension test specimens are taken to represent the middle of the slab as required by 6.1.3. The purchaser should recognize this may require cutting the coils to obtain test samples and results in half-size coils. The sheet is furnished to the following size limits:
|Width, in. [mm]|
|Thickness, in. [mm]||Over 12 [Over 300]|
|0.270 to 0.230 [7.0 to 6.0]||sheet (coils only)|
|Under 0.230 to 0.057 [6.0 to 1.5]||sheet|
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 shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
1.5 Tolerances are found in General Requirements Specifications A568/A568M and A635/A635M. The appropriate General Requirements specification is applied based on the thickness and width of the product ordered.

This specification covers hot-rolled carbon steel sheet for pressure vessels involving fusion welding or brazing. Tensile and yield strengths shall be determined after a tension test of the sheets. The material shall be furnished without removing the hot-rolled oxide or scale. When required, the material may be specified to be pickled or blast cleaned. When specified to be pickled or blast cleaned, the material shall be furnished oiled. When required, pickled or blast-cleaned material may be specified to be furnished dry.View Less
