Description / Abstract:

This specification2 covers carbon steel plates intended for welded pressure vessels and having improved low-temperature transition properties.

For plates up to 1 in. [25 mm] in thickness, a semi-killed steelmaking practice may be used.

The maximum thickness of plates is limited only by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements; however, current practice normally limits the maximum thickness of plates furnished under this specification to 1½ in. [40 mm].

The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as the 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.
