1.1 This specification covers one grade of martensitic stainless steel and several grades of ferritic steel castings for cylinders (shells), valve chests, throttle valves, and other heavy-walled castings for steam turbine applications. 1.2 Optional supplementary requirements (S1 through S5) shall apply as selected by and specified by the purchaser. 1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard.
