SA 240 310 and SA 240 310 H usage

SA 240 310 and SA 240 310 H usage

SA 240 310 and SA 240 310 H usage


I need an information about is using SA 240 310 suitable at 788 degree celsius or do we have use SA 240 310 H because of temperature?

Thanks in advance for your help.

RE: SA 240 310 and SA 240 310 H usage

Used for?

The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand

RE: SA 240 310 and SA 240 310 H usage

Your design code will most probably tell you this. Since you mentioned SA240, I assume your work is under one of the ASME BPV Sections, correct?
If true, have you looked up the applicable material notes (G, H, S, T and W) in section II-D?
Perhaps both 310 and 310H are possible, but one with restrictions, making it more appropriate to use the H-grade (thats what weve found over the years with similar materials).

If not, please tell us your applicable design code.

RE: SA 240 310 and SA 240 310 H usage

Section II-D can give some guidance in terms of allowables, but your very high operating temperature makes it a true high-temperature application, pointing to selecting H-grade material.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
White Paper - The Other Side of Design for Assembly
Assembly level constraints need to be satisfied before the design can move downstream. This white paper will go through the various assembly level issues, which need to be tackled by various organizations on a regular basis. Know more about DFMPro, a design for assembly software. Download Now
