ASTM A193 B16 Mechanical Requirements - Tolerances

ASTM A193 B16 Mechanical Requirements - Tolerances

ASTM A193 B16 Mechanical Requirements - Tolerances


Please support by clarifying the following:

Table 2 and 3 establish the mechanical requirements, which must be met for each grade, however I do not see the maximum or minimum tolerable limits.

Or when carrying out a test, the values obtained must strictly comply with what is indicated in the tables according to the standard?

Thanks for the replies.


RE: ASTM A193 B16 Mechanical Requirements - Tolerances

Without looking at this spec I am guessing that the info that you are looking for is back in the general spec. or in this case perhaps in the finished product specs.
This material is never used as-is it is always turned into fasteners. Check A962, A254, and A320.

P.E. Metallurgy, consulting work welcomed

RE: ASTM A193 B16 Mechanical Requirements - Tolerances

A brief review tells me hardnesses are max, other values are mins. Review of the various test standards may show tolerances. But I'd guess maxes are maxes and mins are mins.



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