    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers high-strength quenched and tempered low-alloy steel forged fittings and parts for pressure vessels. The maximum thickness of forgings under this specification shall be 1 1/2 in. [38 mm] for Grade A, and 3 3/4 in. [95 mm] for Grades E and F (4 in. [102 mm] maximum as heat treated).

    Note-These grades are similar to corresponding grades in Specification A517/A517M.

    1.2 Welding technique is of fundamental importance and it is presupposed that welding procedures will be in accordance with approved methods for the class of material used.

    1.3 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI (metric) units are to be regarded separately as the standard; within the text and tables, 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.

    1.4 Unless the order specifies the applicable "M" specification designation, the material shall be furnished to the inch-pound units.
