ASTM A193 Grade B8S Bolts, Stud Bolts, Fasteners

Standard Specification for Alloy-Steel and Stainless Steel Bolting for High Temperature or High Pressure Service and Other Special Purpose Applications

ASTM A193 specification covers alloy and stainless steel bolting for pressure vessels, valves, flanges, and fittings for high temperature or high pressure service, or other special purpose applications. Several grades are covered, including ferritic steels and austenitic stainless steels designated B5, B6, B7, B8, B8M, etc. Selection will depend upon design, service conditions, mechanical properties, and high temperature characteristics. This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units; however, unless the purchase order or contract specifies the applicable A193M specification designation (SI units), the inch-pound units shall apply
