What is A216 Gr WCB material?
A216 WCB is carbon steel castings for valves, flanges, fittings, or other pressure-containing parts for high-temperature service and of quality suitable for assembly with other castings or wrought-steel parts by fusion welding.
What is the difference between A216 WCB and WCC?
Carbon steel valves are kept in stock in forged ASTM A105 and it’s cast equivalent ASTM/A216-WCB. ASTM A216 WCC has a slightly higher pressure/ temperature rating than A216 WCB as it has a higher yield strength and a slightly higher manganese content.
What is the meaning of WCB in valve body?
WCB is the material grade of a valve. WCB stands for Wrought carbon steel grade B. WCB is covered by ASTM A216 standard. Generally WCB materials are used to cast valve bodies.
What is GS C25 material?
The material “GS-C25” contains Chrome, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, Nickel, Phosphorus, Silicon, Sulfur and. For the future we plan to add mechanical properties of “GS-C25”, complete data-sheets as well as a PDF-Download for you to download.
What is the difference between A105 and WCB?
WCB valves by cast liquid forming that can cause tissue segregation and defects and can be used to cast complex workpieces. The ductility, toughness and other mechanical properties of A105 forged steel valves are higher than WCB castings and can bear greater impact force.
What is the meaning of WCB in ASTM?
WCB refers to a Grade of cast carbon steel in ASTM/ASME A/SA-216, which is “Specification for Steel Castings, Carbon, Suitable for Fusion Welding for High-Temperature Service”. Grades of carbon steel castings are identified as WCA, WCB or WCC and vary based on alloy content, and mechanical properties.
What is the tensile strength of ASTM A216?
ASTM A216 has a tensile strengthof 60 to 95 kilograms per square inch. Tensile strength is a measurement of the amount of stress or stretching a material can take before breaking. A216 has a yield strengthof between 30 and 40 ksi, which measures the amount of pressure it takes for the steel to radically deform.
What is ASTM A216 WCC carbon equivalent?
Carbon steel valves are kept in stock in forged ASTM A105 and it’s cast equivalent ASTM/A216-WCB. The European/DIN equivalent is C22.8 DIN17243 (1.0460). ASTM A216-WCC is also available ex stock and on an indent basis.
What does WCB mean in valve spec?
WCB (UNS Code J03002) is covered by ASTM A216 standard, which specification covers carbon steel castings for valves, fittings, flanges and other pressure-containing parts for high temperature service and the quality required for assembly with other castings or wrought steel parts by fusion welding. These grades are all “cast” grades meaning they are made through “casting” which is a manufacturing process where a liquid material is poured into a mold and allowed to harden..
