    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers vacuum-treated 12 % chromium steel forgings for turbine rotors and shafts.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel, and Related Alloys, this specification was withdrawn in May 2018. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers vacuum-treated 12 % chromium steel forgings for turbine rotors and shafts.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
