Standard Specification for Steel Castings, General Requirements, for Pressure-Containing Parts
|Publication Date:||1 July 2005|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel castings):||77.140.80|
This specification also covers a group of supplementary requirements which may be applied to the above specifications as indicated therein. These are provided for use when additional testing or inspection is desired and apply only when specified individually by the purchaser in the order.
In case of conflict between the requirements of the individual specification and this general specification, the former shall prevail.
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. Inch-pound units are applicable for material ordered to Specification A 703 and SI units for material ordered to Specification A 703M.
