ASME SA 240-2021 pdf – SPECIFICATION FOR CHROMIUM AND CHROMIUM-NICKEL STAINLESS STEEL PLATE, SHEET, AND STRIP FOR PRESSURE VESSELS AND FOR GEN ERAL APPLICATIONS
ASME SA 240-2021 pdf – SPECIFICATION FOR CHROMIUM AND CHROMIUM-NICKEL STAINLESS STEEL PLATE, SHEET, AND STRIP FOR PRESSURE VESSELS AND FOR GEN ERAL APPLICATIONS.
1.1 This specification covers chromium, chromium-nickel, and chromium-manganese-nickel stainless steel plate, sheet. and strip for pressure vessels and for general applications including architectural, building, construction, and aesthetic applications.
1.2 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 This specification is expressed in both inch-pound and SI units. However, unless the order specifies the applicable ‘GM” specification designation (SI units), the material shall he furnished in inch-pound units.
I .4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concernc if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro— priate safe heal!!,, and environmental practIces and deter— mine the applicability of regulatory lumtations prior w use.
I .5 This international standard was developed in accordance wit/i internationally recognized principles on standardiZ atwn established in the Decision on Principles for the Developinetir of International Sandards, Guides and Recoin— mendations issued by (lie World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
