Case 2226-1 TABLE 1

Construction for Temperatures up to 1250F Fittings SB-366
Section I Forgings SB-564
Bar SB-574
Sheet, plate, and strip SB-575
Welded pipe SB-619
Inquiry: May solution annealed nickel-chromium-mo- Seamless pipe and tube SB-622
lybdenum alloy UNS N06022 for the products listed Welded tube SB-626
in Table 1 be used in welded construction under the
rules of Section I up to 1250F?
Reply: It is the opinion of the Committee that the
material described in the Inquiry may be used in the
welded construction under the rules of Section I for
temperatures up to 1250F provided that the following For Metal Temperature Allowable Stress Values,
