ASTM A381 Y65 / ASME BPVC IX / ASME B31.3

ASTM A381 Y65 / ASME BPVC IX / ASME B31.3

ASTM A381 Y65 / ASME BPVC IX / ASME B31.3

(OP)
Hi,

I have a question about the pipe material ASTM A381 Y65, this material is not into the section IX of ASME BPVC neither into ASME B31.3 table A-1. In ASME B31.3 table A-1 appear ASTM A381 from Y42 to Y60.

Someboby could help me to understand the reason why this material is excluded from ASME B31.3 and ASME IX?

Thank you and best regards



RE: ASTM A381 Y65 / ASME BPVC IX / ASME B31.3

IMO, it may be no need to include A387 Y65 material in the B31.3 or BPVC since it isn't popular for the process plant. The high strength material, such as API5L X-Grade or A387 Y-Grade, are mainly used for the B31.4 pipeline system. Basically, these high strength material is susceptible to welding problem and hydrogen embrittlement.
However, if needed, the "Unlisted Material" can be used for the process plant as if it meets the B31.3 requirements per Section 323.1.2.

When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances?

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
