This specification2 covers killed carbon-manganesesilicon steel plates intended for welded pressure vessels in service at moderate and lower temperatures.
The maximum thickness of plates supplied under this specification is 1 in. [25 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.
2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SA-612/SA-612M in Section II of that Code.
*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
