1.1 Thisspecification covers carbon steel castings for valves (such as ball valve, gate valves etc.),flanges,fittings,or otherpressure-containing parts for high-temperature service and of quality suitable for assembly with other castings or wrought-steel parts by fusion welding.
1.2 Three grades,WCA,WCB,and WCC,are covered in this specification. Selection will depend uponde signand service conditions,mechanical properties,and the hightem-perature characteristics.
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or in-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each stystem may not be exact equivalent; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non- conformance with the standard.
