ASTM WK43295

    Revision of A487 / A487M - 93(2012) Standard Specification for Steel Castings Suitable for Pressure Service

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A487 / A487M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.18 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    In order to reflect current production capabilities, a reduction in the maximum limits of sulfur and phosphorous are proposed. The reductions proposed are in accordance with similar reductions implemented in the revisions of ASTM A216 that were approved in 2012. This change would have the incidental effect of aligning the ASTM specification more closely to other worldwide specifications for similar materials.
