Active Standard ASTM A891 / A891M | Developed by Subcommittee: A01.06
Book of Standards Volume: 01.05
Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers precipitation hardened iron base superalloy forgings which are primarily intended for use as turbine rotor disks and wheels. Two heat treatments are covered and selection will depend upon design, service conditions, mechanical properties, and elevated temperature characteristics. The material shall be made by vacuum melting followed by consumable electrode vacuum arc or electroslag remelting. The forgings shall undergo the following tests: tension test, hardness test, stress rupture test, and creep test. Also, the forgings shall be subjected to non-destructive examinations like ultrasonic examination and liquid penetrant examination. The forgings shall be uniform in quality and condition, clean, sound, and free of cracks, seams, laps, shrinkage, and other injurious imperfections.
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.
1.1 This specification covers precipitation hardening iron base superalloy forgings which are primarily intended for use as turbine rotor disks and wheels.
1.2 Two heat treatments are covered. Selection will depend upon design, service conditions, mechanical properties, and elevated temperature characteristics.
1.3 All of the provisions of Specification A788/A788M, apply, except as amended herein.
1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
