A valve company took exception, and indicated that duplex valve bodies and bonnets would be supplied per ASTM A What is the difference between these specifications? As such, many piping specifications include references to ASTM A and its various duplex grades for piping components such as valves. ASTM A lists tensile property requirements, but does not require that the tensile tests actually be performed. Tensile tests are only required if Supplementary Requirement S32 is specified on the purchase order. In order to obtain a test report showing the actual chemistry and tensile test results, Supplementary Requirement S12 must also be imposed.

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Since these grades possess varying degrees of suitability for service in corrosive environments, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to determine which grade shall be furnished.
Selection will depend on design and service conditions, mechanical proper- ties, and corrosion-resistant characteristics. Within the text, the SI units are shown in parentheses. 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 this specifi- cation. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety and health practices and determine the applica- bility of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Referenced Documents 2. Current edition approved March 1, Published March Originally approved in Last previous edition approved in as A — Terminology 3. Also includes scrapped machinery and fabricated items, chips, and turnings. General Conditions for Delivery 4. Ordering Information 5. Such requirements may include, but are not limited to, the following: 5.
Dimensional tolerances should be included on the casting drawing. Class D will be supplied unless otherwise specified. Process and Manufacture 6. Chemical Composition 7.
An analysis of every heat is required. Tensile Properties 8. Test results shall conform to the tensile requirements specified in Table 3. The bar shall be solution heat treated per the requirements of Table 4 in production furnaces to the same procedure as the castings it represents.
If the casting grade does not require heat treatment, the bar used for the test specimen shall not be heat treated. Weldability Qualification 9. Nondestructive Examination Each class imposes specific requirements for three different NDE meth- ods. Fusion discontinuities, expansion discontinuities, and inserts are un- acceptable. All other surface features must meet the acceptance criteria class in Table 2. If the second casting passes, then no additional radiography beyond the normal amount is re- quired.
If that second casting fails, all remaining castings shall be radiographed in only the rejectable areas found on the first and second castings.
Quench in water. A M As-cast A Quench in water or rapid cool by other means as agreed upon by the manufacturer and purchaser. Repair by Welding Only the filler material grades specified in Table 5 shall be used. Initial excavation of defects may be accomplished by any method including air-arc gouging, grinding, or machining; however, all visible traces of the air-arc process shall be removed by grinding or machining.
All surfaces to be welded and at least 1 in. The cleaning may be accomplished by grinding or by machining followed by solvent washing. Heat Treatment Workmanship, Finish, and Appearance Final cleaning shall be accomplished by blasting with clean nonme- tallic media not previously used on steel or iron parts, pickling, machining, or other approved methods approved by the pur- chaser.

More A The choice of manufacturing procedure to be used for producing the alloy castings shall be according to specified metallic contents. Materials shall conform to specified chemical composition and tensile property requirements, and weldability qualifications. Nondestructive examination requirements such as casting thickness shall be evaluated by visual, radiographic, and liquid penetrant inspection. Castings shall be repair welded and solution heat treated prior to final cleaning by blasting, and shall not be peened, plugged, or impregnated.
