    Abstract

    This specification covers hot-wrought, ferritic alloy steel bars for elevated temperature or pressure-containing parts suitable for fusion welding or both. The bars are furnished in two grades: Grade B 11 and Grade B 22. The steel shall be made by on or more of the following primary processes: open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or electric furnace. The bars shall be normalized and tempered. The heat analysis shall conform to the limits for chemical composition specified. The bars as represented by the test specimen shall conform to the tensile requirements specified.

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 hot-wrought, ferritic alloy steel bars for elevated temperature or pressure-containing parts suitable for fusion welding or both.

    1.2 The bars are furnished in the following grades:

    Grade B 11: 1.25 % chromium, 0.55 % molybdenum
    Grade B 22: 2.25 % chromium, 1.00 % molybdenum

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
