Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the standard requirements for nickel-iron-chromium alloy which include UNS N08120, UNS N08800, UNS N08801, UNS N08810, UNS N08811, UNS N08890, and UNS N06811 in the form of cold-worked and hot-finished annealed seamless pipe and tube. The materials shall be heat treated at certain annealing temperatures and shall conform to the chemical composition limits for nickel, chromium, iron, manganese, carbon, copper, silicon, sulfur, aluminum, titanium, columbium, molybdenum, niobium, tantalum, phosphorus, tungsten, cobalt, nitrogen, and boron. Planimetric method of measurement and tension test shall be conducted in full tubular size, longitudinal strip, or round specimens in the direction of fabrication to determine the grain size and mechanical properties, respectively. These materials shall conform to the specified grain size, yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation requirements. Each pipe or tube shall be subjected to hydrostatic or nondestructive eddy-current tests to determine the allowable fiber stress and to detect significant discontinuities such as drilled hole and transverse tangential notch. The cold-drawn material shall be commercially straight, uniform in quality and temper, smooth, and free of bends, kinks, 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 UNS N08120, UNS N08800, UNS N08801, UNS N08810, UNS N08811, UNS N08890, and UNS N06811 in the form of cold-worked and hot-finished annealed seamless pipe and tube. Alloys UNS N08800 and UNS N06811 are normally employed in service temperatures up to and including 1100°F (593°C). Alloys UNS N08120, UNS N08810, UNS N08811, and UNS N08890 are normally employed in service temperatures above 1100°F (593°C) where resistance to creep and rupture is required, and they are annealed to develop controlled grain size for optimum properties in this temperature range.
1.2 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.
1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations.
