The design and manufacture of a metal component involves a multitude of decision points and will be influenced by considerations such as structural performance, weight, lead time, cost and aesthetics. It is understandable, therefore, that thoughts about how precisely that component is going to be manufactured are often left until the design is at a fairly … Read more
CARBON STEEL ASME SA352 LCC
One of the most widely used Carbon Steels in the industry. This material is used not only in many of the water- and steam-pressure containing systems in power plants but also in the supports for these systems. Typically referred to as a cast low temp steel, LCC is the common grade for regular temperature applications for cast steel valves. The three grades of ASTM A352/A352M are good for temperatures ranging from -50*F to 800* F (where corrosion resistance is not important). This specification covers carbon steel castings for valves, fittings, flanges and other pressure-containing parts for low temperature service and the quality required for assembly with other castings or wrought steel parts by fusion welding.
