ASTM A333 Grade 6, Seamless Steel Pipe for Low-Temperature Service

ASTM A333 Standard covers seamless and welded steel pipe for low temperature service. The Grade 6 steel involved is similar to AISI 4032 low alloy steel.

pipe shall be made by the seamless or welding process with the addition of no filler metal in the welding operation.Seamless and Welded Steel Pipe size for Low-Temperature Service:

  • Outer Dimensions: 19.05mm – 114.3mm
  • Wall Thickness:2.0mm – 14 mm
  • Length: max 16000mm

Application: Seamless and .

Steel grade: ASTM A333 Grade 6

Packing: Bare packing/bundle packing/crate packing/wooden protection at the both sides of tubes and suitably protected for sea-worthly delivery or as requested.

Inspection and Test: Chemical Composition Inspection, Mechanical Properties Test(Tensile Strength,Yield Strength, Elongation, Flaring, Flattening, Bending, Hardness, Impact Test), Surface and Dimension Test,No-destructive Test, Hydrostatic Test.

Surface treatment: Oil-dip, Varnish, Passivation, Phosphating, Shot Blasting.

Both ends of each crate will indicate the order no., heat no., dimensions, weight and bundles or as requested.

Machinability

Machinability is good, similar to law alloy 4032 steel.

Forming

The product comes in piping form but may be formed readily by conventional methods.

Welding

Weldable by conventional methods.

Heat Treatment

Product is supplied in the normalized, 1500 f and air cooled, condition. It may be quenched and tempered by heating to 1475 F, quench in circulating water and then temper by re-heating to 1100 F and rapid air cooling.

Forging

Product is supplied in pipe form and not normally forged from that shape.

Hot Working

Hot working may be done qt 2000 F down to 1600 F if need be. Do not hot work below 1550 F and immediately following hot working cool in a controlled atmosphere furnace from a temperature above 1550 F.

Cold Working

Cold working may be done by conventional methods.

Annealing

Anneal, or normalize, at 1600 F and air cool.

Aging

Not applicable.
