    WK61784


    Keywords

    austenitic-ferritic; duplex stainless steel; pressure-containing; steel castings;;

    Rationale

    The wording in Table 1 Heat Treatment Requirements is inconstant between the grades this work item removes these inconsistencies. For grades where a drop in temperature before the quench is permitted or mandatory the wording minimum has resulted in inquiry questions. This work item clarifies the intent of the heat treatment requirements. NOTE: For grade 6A the wording for the drop in temperature will only be applicable if work item WK61758 passes ballot.
