Description / Abstract:

This specification2 covers high-tensile strength carbonmanganese steel plates intended for welded pressure vessels.

This steel is usually made to a semi-killed or capped deoxidation practice; however, at the purchaser’s or the steel producer’s option, the steel may be made silicon-killed or aluminum-killed.

The maximum thickness of plates furnished under this specification shall be 3⁄4 in. [20 mm].

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.

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.

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.
