ASTM WK60960

    Revision of A335 / A335M - 15a Standard Specification for Seamless Ferritic Alloy-Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A335 / A335M - 15a

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.10 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK60960

    1. Rationale

    A335 has heat treatment requirements for Grade P91 that have resulted in inquiries indicating that clarification would be beneficial. This proposal makes clear that normalizing and tempering or quenching and tempering are both permitted, regardless of size or thickness and that there is no technical reason to require permission of the purchaser. This change has been made recently in A182 for F91. This revision also clarifies that where more than one heat treatment is listed for a Grade in Table 2, only one of these heat treatments need be performed.
