NOTES TO TABLE II: (Numbers in parentheses refer to the following Notes) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. ASME specifications are preceded by SA instead of A, and have the same numerical designation (e.g., SA193). ASME materials are in accordance with ASME Section II, Part A. The KBR Bolting Type shall not be marked on the bolting material. Bolting shall be marked in accordance with the applicable material specification only. Either Class 1, solution treated, or Class 2, solution treated and strain hardened, may be used. Carbon content shall not exceed 0.25% to permit possible field welding. Dimensions to A193 Dimensions to A194
