    Carbon Steel Grades LCB and LCC are impact tested at -50°F. Three and one half nickel Grade LC3 material is impact tested for services down to -150°F.

    Charpy V-Notch Impact Testing is required.

    The specification offers optional Supplementary Requirements and a non-mandatory Appendix included for information only.

    Cast Valves for Low Temperature service are normally offered in A/SA352 Grades LCB(65ksi Tensile) and LCC(70 ksi Tensile). Grade LCA(60ksi Tensile) material is listed in Specifications A/SA352, but is not a standard production item for valves.

  • The specification listed above reflects the common materials required for manufacture and fabrication of items for use in Low Temperature Service.
The inquiry and order should address the following:

1) A casting description by pattern number or a drawing including dimensional tolerances.
2) Grade of material.
3) Any desired options or supplementary requirements offered in the specification.
4) Acceptance standards.
