Revision of A962/A962M-22 Standard Specification for Common Requirements for Bolting Intended for Use at Any Temperature from Cryogenic to the Creep Range


Current A962 paragraph 15.2 Tension and Impact test number requirements for continuous processing are based on 10,000 Lbs weight increments. From bolting materials (bars) dimensional perspective (footage) this results in very uneven length distribution. For example, one tension test for each 10,000 lbs of 1/4" diameter bars continuous processing would represent approximately 60,000 linear feet vs. 417 feet for 3"diameters or 104 feet for 6" diameter bars. Proposed revision will use nominal linear footage for continuous processing instead of bar weight.
