ASTM B 425(UNS No. N8825)forging and ASTM B 564(UNS No. N8825)

ASTM B 425(UNS No. N8825)forging and ASTM B 564(UNS No. N8825)

ASTM B 425(UNS No. N8825)forging and ASTM B 564(UNS No. N8825)

(OP)
I have found a specification requirement of ASTM B 425(UNS No. N 8825)forging for fittings and flanges but I have observed that this ASTM specification is for rod and bar not for forging whereas the ASTM B 564(UNS No. N 8825)is for forging.

Now I am informed that if any specification calls for ASTM B 425 ( UNS No. N 8825) and forging than both can not be complied it has to be either only ASTM B 425 ( UNS No. N 8825) or ASTM B 564(UNS N 8825.)and forging.

Can any body clarify about this? I am in extreem hurry to take decision regarding this for Incoloy piping fitting and flanges. Please help me out.    

RE: ASTM B 425(UNS No. N8825)forging and ASTM B 564(UNS No. N8825)

For pipe flanges and flanged fittings refer to ASME B16.5. In ASME B16.5, both ASTM B 424 and B 564 standard specifications are approved for use - B 424 is for plates and B 564 is for forgings. Either standard specification will work for Incoloy 825 material.

Thanks metengr, but whether ASTM B 425 can be forging ? if I say forging for Icoloy 825 piping fitting can it be other than ASTM B 564 ? Please clarify.

nirmalii;
No. ASTM B425 is a standard specification for hot finished and cold drawn rod and bar products. You need to reference B424.

metengr thanks once again. Since ASTM B 424 is specification for plates if I want to have forged flange I have no other option than ASTM B 564. Am I correct.

RE: ASTM B 425(UNS No. N8825)forging and ASTM B 564(UNS No. N8825)

Yes, this is correct. ASTM B424 deals with plate, strip and sheet that are either hot or cold rolled.
