    Abstract

    This specification covers carbon steel plates of low- and intermediate-tensile strengths which may be made by killed, semi-killed, capped, or rimmed steel. These plates are intended for fusion-welded pressure vessels. Plates are normally supplied in the as-rolled condition. The steel shall conform to the required chemical compositions. The plates, as represented by the tension test specimens, shall conform to the mechanical property requirements.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification2 covers carbon steel plates of low- and intermediate-tensile strengths which may be killed or semi-killed at the producer’s option. These plates are intended for fusion-welded pressure vessels.

    1.2 Plates under this specification are available in three grades having different strength levels as follows:

    Grade

    Tensile Strength, ksi [MPa]

    A

    45–65 [310–450]

    B

    50–70 [345–485]

    C

    55–75 [380–515]

    1.3 The maximum thickness of plates is limited by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements.

    Note 1: For killed carbon steels only, refer to the following ASTM specifications:3

    A299/A299M Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, Manganese-Silicon

    A515/A515M Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, for Intermediate- and Higher-Temperature Service

    A516/A516M Specification for Pressure Vessel Plates, Carbon Steel, for Moderate- and Lower-Temperature Service

    1.4 For plates produced from coil and furnished without heat treatment or with stress relieving only, the additional requirements, including additional testing requirements and the reporting of additional test results, of Specification A20/A20M apply.

    1.5 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
