Case 2063-3
Ni-22Cr-14W-2Mo-La Alloy (UNS N06230)
Section I and Section VIII, Division 1
Inquiry: May solution-annealed alloy UNS N06230
wrought sheet, strip, plate, bar, welded pipe and tube,
and seamless pipe, tube, and forgings, conforming to
the specications listed in Table 1, be used in welded
construction under Section VIII, Division 1?
Reply: It is the opinion of the Committee that solu-
tion-annealed alloy UNS N06230 wrought sheet, strip,
plate, bar, welded pipe and tube, and seamless pipe,
tube, and forgings as described in the Inquiry, may be
used in welded construction complying with the rules
of Section I and Section VIII, Division 1, providing
the following additional requirements are met.
(a) Material other than forgings shall be solution
annealed at a minimum temperature of 2200F, followed
by a water quench or rapidly cooled by other means.
Forgings shall be solution annealed at a minimum
temperature of 2150F followed by a water quench or
rapidly cooled by other means.
(b) Forgings conforming to B 564 shall also meet
the requirements of Tables 2 and 3.
(c) The rules in Section VIII, Division 1, Subsection
C that shall apply are those given in Part UNF for
nickel alloys.
(d) The maximum allowable stress values for the
material shall be those given in Table 4. For Section
VIII, Division 1 welded pipe and tube products, a joint
efciency factor of 0.85 shall be used. For Section I,

welded pipe and tube products, the allowable stress
values shall be reduced by 15%.
(e) Separate welding procedure qualications and
performance qualications, conducted in accordance
with Section IX, shall be required for this material.
Welding shall be limited to gas metal arc and gas
tungsten arc welding processes using ller metal with
the same nominal composition as the base material.
(f) Heat treatment after forming or welding is neither
required nor prohibited. When heat treatment is applied,
the temperature, time, and method of heat treatment
shall be covered by agreement between the user and
manufacturer.
(g) For Section VIII external pressure design, Fig.
5-UNF-28.39 shall be used.
(h) For Section I, which requires a temperature depen-
dent parameter y [see PG-27.4, Note (6)], the y values
shall be as follows:
(1) 1150F and below, y p 0.4;
(2) 1200F, y p 0.5; and
(3) 1250F and above, y p 0.7.
(i) This Case number shall be shown on the docu-
mentation and marking of the material and recorded
on the Manufacturers Data Report.
CAUTIONARY NOTE: Austenitic alloys are subject to stress corro-
sion cracking, intergranular attack, pitting, and crevice corrosion
when used in boiler applications in aqueous environments. Factors
that affect the susceptibility of these materials are applied or residual
stress, water chemistry and deposition of solids, and material condi-
tion. Susceptibility to attack is enhanced when the material is used
in a sensitized condition, or with residual cold work. Concentration
of corrosive agents (e.g., chlorides, caustic, or reduced sulfur species)
can occur under deposits formed on the surface of these materials,
and can result in severe underdeposit wastage or cracking. For
successful operation in water environments, careful attention must
be paid to continuous control of water chemistry.

NOTE:
(1) Due to the relatively low yield strength of this material, these
higher stress values were established at temperatures where the
short time tensile properties govern to permit the use of these
alloys where slightly greater deformation is acceptable. These
higher stress values exceed 67%, but do not exceed 90% of the
yield strength at temperature. Use of these stresses may result
in dimensional changes due to permanent strain. These stress
values are not recommended for the anges of gasketed joints or
other applications where slight amounts of distortion can cause
leakage or malfunction.
