ASTM WK42681

    New Specification for Standard specification for pressure vessel plates, alloy steel, austenitic high manganese for cryogenic applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.11 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This spefication covers high manganese austentitic steel plates for use in cryogenic services intended for the fabrication of welded pressure vessels.

    A new high manganese austenitic steel has been developed for pressure vessels in cryogenic services and therefore a new standard for this material is needed for use. The steel plates will be fabricated into pressure vessels and once this standard is developed, a number of users such as steel plates and pressure vessels manufactures, government agencies, and quality control in many related industries will adopt it.


    alloy steel; alloy steel plate; high manganese; austenitic steel plate; pressure vessel steels; steel plates for pressure vessel applications

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
