Standard Specification for Sizes of Ferroalloys and Alloy Additives
|Publication Date:||1 November 2015|
|ICS Code (Ferroalloys):||77.100|
1.1 This specification covers standard nominal sizes and size tolerances of screened ferroalloy and alloy additive products. This specification provides a range of sizes as referenced in all ASTM specifications for ferroalloys and alloy additives.
1.2 The sizes and tolerances allow for varying degrees of friability upon receipt of material since some attrition may be expected in transit, storage, and handling.
1.3 Specifications of sieve sizes used to define tolerances are listed in Specification E11. Representative procedures for evaluation of each lot are described in Methods A610. Refer to Appendix X1 for applicable sieve designations (see Table X1.1).
1.4 Units-The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.4.1 This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units (Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets); however, unless the purchase order or contract specifies the applicable M specification designation (SI units), the inch-pound units shall apply.

This specification covers standards for sizes of screened ferroalloys and alloy additives. Products shall conform to specified nominal size, standard ordered size, maximum allowable oversize, maximum allowable undersize, and friability rating. Description of the friability ratings of the ferroalloys is also provided.View Less
