    ASTM B763 / B763M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes requirements for copper alloy sand castings for valve applications. Nominal compositions of the alloys defined by this specification are shown in Table 1.2

    Note 1This specification does not cover Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C83600, C92200, C96200, and C96400. These alloys are also used in valve applications. They are covered by the following specifications:

    C83600: B62

    C92200: B61

    C96200: B369

    C96400: B369




    1.2 The castings produced under this specification are used in products which may be manufactured in advance and supplied for sale from stock by the manufacturer.

    1.3 Units—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.
