Description / Abstract:

This specification2 covers requirements for high-strength quenched and tempered alloy steel forgings for pressure vessels, isostatic presses, shock tubes, and similar components.

These materials are not intended for welded construction.

Three grades of nickel-chromium-molybdenum steels and six classes of increasing tensile strength are included. The strength class, section size, and configuration of the forging will largely dictate the applicable type(s) of steel.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SA-723 in Section II of that Code.
