Standard Specification for Carbon and Alloy Steel Forgings for Pipe Flanges, Fittings, Valves, and Parts for High-Pressure Transmission Service
|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel forgings):||77.140.85|
This specification covers forged or rolled steel pipe flanges, forged
fittings, valves, and parts
suitable for use with high-strength transmission-service
Several grades of material, based on minimum yield strength requirements, are covered, as indicated in Table 1.
Supplementary Requirements are provided. Supplementary Requirement S 1 is provided for use when purchaser approval is required for repair welding.
This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units. However, unless the order specifies the applicable "M" specification designation (SI units), the material shall be furnished to inch-pound units.
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.
