    THIS GROUP OF SPECIFICATIONS WAS WRITTEN TO address forgings for large pressure retaining components, whose weight would normally be measured in tons rather than pounds, and where a wall thickness of 1 in. (25 mm) would be considered to be thin. As a consequence, the heat treatment and testing requirements both mechanical and nondestructive are more demanding than those found in the piping fittings standards.
