Standard Specification for Wrought Austenitic Stainless Steel Piping Fittings

Overview

1.1 This specification covers wrought stainless steel fittings for pressure piping applications.

1.2 Several grades of austenitic stainless steel alloys are included in this specification. Grades are designated with a WP or CR based on the applicable ANSI or MSS dimensional and rating standards, respectively.

1.3 For each of the WP stainless grades, several classes of fittings are covered, to indicate whether seamless or welded construction was used. Class designations are also used to indicate the nondestructive test method and extent of nondestructive examination (NDE). A table gives the general summary of the fitting classes applicable to all WP grades of stainless steel covered by this specification. There are no classes for the CR grades. Specific requirements are covered under another specification.

1.4 This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units. However, unless the order specifies the applicable "M" specification designation (SI units), the material shall be furnished to inch-pound units.

1.5 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. (A combination of values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.)

1.6 This specification does not apply to cast steel fittings. Austenitic stainless steel castings are covered in Specifications A 351/A 351M, A 743/A 743M, and A 744/A 744M.
