This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Containing Parts, Suitable for Low-Temperature.

Bolting and the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster. Steel Castings, Ferritic and Martensitic, for Pressure.

Certain elements are known to inhibit the formationof aluminum nitride. Chemical Production Continues to Edge Lo. Custom Hydraulic Power Units. A cross-section of the heaviest section of a sacrificial casting A coupon attached to the heaviest section A coupon removed from directly under a riser or A coupon from the same heat of material removed from a separately cast test block with a thickness representative of the heaviest section of the casting.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. When the metal is poured into the casting mold, the oxygen can come out of the solution a7003 form gas porosity in the castings.


The mold material can also influence the cooling rate. Smart, Data-Driven and Agile Post: The steel shall be made by open-hearth or electric-furnace process, with or without sstm refining such as argon-oxygen-decarburization AODunless otherwise designated by the individual specification. If fracture occurs, it has a rock-candy appearance due to fracture along the prior austenite grain boundaries. For example, air-set sand is known to inherently produce molds that cool slower than green-sand molds.

What is the purpose of this requirement? The resulting etched ashm is compared with 10 reference macrographs.

One tension test shall be made from each heat, and shall conform to the tensile requirements specified. ViewIn Technology for Mechanical Seals. The material shall conform to the specified chemical composition requirements. One of the elements that is sometimes added as a deoxidizer is aluminum, which creates a potential for the formation of aluminum nitride. Therefore, the nitrogen content of the steel is often not known or reported, and it is possible that enough nitrogen is present to form aluminum nitride.

For heats with aluminum content greater than 0. Although some foundries monitor nitrogen levels in their steel, many do not have the necessary equipment to do this. When steel is melted, oxygen and nitrogen can be dissolved in the molten steel. Stainless Steel, for Pressure-Containing Parts.

Materials Q&A

Pressure-Containing Parts, Suitable for High. E Reference Radiographs for Heavy-Walled to 12 in. A complex casting with relatively thin walls may experience slower cooling rates than a simple casting with the same wall thickness because the complex casting will atm heat through the mold less effectively.

Looking for a career in the Valve Industry? Electric Actuator Commissioning Post: This compound tends to precipitate in the prior austenite grain boundaries and can result in castings that display loss of ductility that could result in brittle failure of the casting if it is shock-loaded in asym.


It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

Supplemental Requirement S23 in ASTM A

Combining values from satm two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. The thickness of the casting orportion of the casting is an obviousfactor influencing whether embrittlementoccurs, since thicker casting sectionswill cool more slowly through thecritical temperature range than thinsections.

After machining, each casting shall be tested under specified hydrostatic shell test pressures in the applicable steel rating for which the casting is asstm. Variables That Influence Embrittlement There are a number of variables that influence the potential for this type of embrittlement: Steel Castings, Martensitic Stainless and Alloy, for.

Valve Basics Training to Expand in Post: These are provided for use when additional testing or inspection is desired and apply only when specified individually by the purchaser in the order. This specification covers steel castings, general requirements, for pressure-containing parts.

In order to avoid castings with excessive gas porosity, the foundry may add deoxidizing elements to the melt. Most foundries have the equipment necessary to analyze and report aluminum content.
