This specification establishes requirements for bronze castings for steam locomotive wearing parts. The following Copper Alloy UNS Nos. are specified: C93200, C93400, C93600, C93700, C93800, C94300, C94400, and C94500. The product shall be manufactured by such casting methods to produce a uniform finished product. The castings shall conform to the compositional requirements for named elements specified. The castings shall not be repaired, plugged, welded, or burned-in.
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 establishes requirements for bronze castings for steam locomotive wearing parts. The following Copper Alloy UNS Nos. are specified: C93200, C93400, C93600, C93700, C93800, C94300, C94400, C94500, and C95400.
Note 1—Historically, the alloys in this specification have been used in the applications listed in the Appendix. Actual practice may vary according to locomotive type and service.
1.2 Units—The values stated in inch-pound or SI 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 nonconformance with the standard.
1.3 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 establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
