    ASTM A860 / A860M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers wrought high-strength low-alloy steel butt-welding fittings of seamless and electric fusion-welded construction covered by the latest revisions of ANSI B16.9, ANSI 16.28, and MSS-SP-75. Butt-welding fittings differing from these ASME and MSS standards shall be furnished in accordance with Supplementary Requirement S58 of Specification A960. These fittings are for use in high-pressure gas and oil transmission and distribution systems.

    1.2 Optional supplementary requirements are provided for fittings when a greater degree of examination is desired. One or more of the supplementary requirements may be specified in the order.

    1.3 This specification does not cover cast-welding fittings or fittings machined from castings.

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