ASTM A447/A447M-11(2016) Standard Specification for Steel Castings, Chromium-Nickel-Iron Alloy (25-12 Class), for High-Temperature Service
: Brown Technical Book Store
1.1 This specification covers iron-base, heat-resisting alloy castings of the 25 % chromium, 12 % nickel class, intended for structural elements, containers, and supports in electric furnaces, petroleum still tube supports, and for similar applications up to 2000Â°F [1095Â°C]. 1.2 In the absence of significant proportions of elements other than those prescribed in Section 5, the two types of alloys covered by this specification may in general be distinguished as follows: 1.2.1 Type I-Alloys characterized by relatively low limiting creep stress at temperatures between 1500 and 2000Â°F [815 and 1095Â°C], and relatively high ductility at ordinary temperatures after aging for short periods at temperatures between 1300 and 1500Â°F [705 and 815Â°C]. 1.2.2 Type II-Alloys having relatively high limiting creep stress but which may develop low ductility at ordinary temperatures when aged for short periods at temperatures between 1350 and 1500Â°F [730 and 815Â°C]. 1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. 1.3.1 Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets.
