ASTM A333 Low Temperature Pipe

ASTM A333 (ASME S/A-333) Pipe grades permit low temperature service. This specification covers nominal (average) walled pipe almost exclusively in seamless.

Several grades of ferritic steel are included. Some product sizes may not be available under this specification because heavier wall thicknesses have an adverse effect on low-temperature impact properties.

A333 pipe is furnished to nine different grades designated by numbers 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, & 11.

Specific Impact requirements

The raw material used for low temperature service pipe is ALUMINIUM killed with high proportion of manganese (more than 1%) combined with low proportions of carbon (less than 0.23%).For low temperature pipe to be certified as LTCS additional impact test should be conducted at low temperatures, as per mandatory requirements in section 8 of ASTM A 333.

Alloy steel specification, Standard and identification

Alloy Steel pipe contains substantial quantities of elements other than carbon such as nickel, chromium, silicon, manganese, tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium and limited amounts of other commonly accepted elements such as manganese, sulfur, silicon, and phosphorous.
