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.
