    Abstract

    This specification covers the standard for iron-chromium-nickel, high-alloy tubes made by the centrifugal casting process intended for use under pressure at high temperatures. The tubing shall be supplied in the as cast condition or as cast with machining on the outside or inside surfaces. The material shall conform to the required chemical composition in carbon, manganese, silicon, chromium, nickel, phosphorus, sulfur, and molybdenum. Tension test shall be performed in the tubing at elevated temperature and shall conform to the required values in tensile strength and elongation. Tubing shall meet several tests such as; pressure test, flattening test, and mechanical test.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers iron-chromium-nickel, high-alloy tubes made by the centrifugal casting process intended for use under pressure at high temperatures.

    1.2 The grades of high alloys detailed in Table 1 are intended for applications requiring strength and resistance to corrosion and scaling at high temperatures.

    1.3 Optional Supplementary Requirements S1 to S11 are provided; these call for additional tests to be made if desired.

    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 each other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
