    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 01.04, 2017 Defines carbon-silicon steel plates primarily for intermediate- and higher-temperature service in welded boilers and other pressure vessels.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This specification2 covers carbon-silicon steel plates primarily for intermediate- and higher-temperature service in welded boilers and other pressure vessels.

    1.2Plates under this specification are available in three grades having different strength levels as follows:

    Grade U.S. [SI]

    Tensile Strength, ksi [MPa]

    60 [415]

    60–80 [415–550]

    65 [450]

    65–85 [450–585]

    70 [485]

    70–90 [485–620]

    1.3The maximum thickness of plates is limited only by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements.

    1.4For plates produced from coil and furnished without heat treatment or with stress relieving only, the additional requirements, including additional testing requirements and the reporting of additional test results, of Specification A20/A20M apply.

    1.5The 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.

    1.6This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
