ASTM WK70752

    Revision of A612 / A612M - 12(2019) Standard Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, High Strength, for Moderate and Lower Temperature Service

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A612 / A612M - 20

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.11 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager

    Keywords

    Rationale

    In 2017 the majority of the standards covered by A20 were revised to remove existing thickness restrictions, instead basing thickness limits on successful achievement of meeting the required properties. This standard was not one for which the existing thickness restrictions were removed until the need or data supported such a revision. Subsequently, a user and a producer have requested that that the thickness restriction for A612 be removed. Data supporting this proposed revision is attached.
