Principal Design Features : This specification covers seamless and welded steel pipe for low temperature service.
Applications : Used for low temperature service piping down to minus 50 F.
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.
Tempering : See “Heat Treatment”
Hardening : Hardens from cold working or heat treatment. See “Heat Treatment”.
Other Comments : Grade 6 is a low alloy steel similar to 4032 in properties.
Tensile strength requirement for Grade 6 is 60 ksi minimum and notched-bar impact strength is 4 to 13 ft. lbs. depending upon section size.
