ASTM A105 Carbon Steel Forgings

ASTM A105 is the standard specification covering forged carbon steel piping components for ambient- and higher-temperature service in pressure systems. It can be readily manufactured to flanges, fittings, valves, and other piping components in accordance with dimensional standards such as MSS, ASME, API, EN/BS, DIN, NOSOK specifications, etc. A105 forgings are limited to a maximum weight of 4540 kg [10000 lb]. As stated in our quality manual, welding repair of defects in ASTM A105 flanges or fittings is absolutely prohibited by Metals-Piping(although it is permissible by the standard).

3. Heat Treatment of ASTM A105

Heat treatment is not a mandatory requirement of ASTM A105 piping components. However, there are some exceptions: ASME B16.5 flanges Class 400, 900, 1500, 2500; Flanges of special design where the design pressure at the design temperature exceeds the pressure-temperature ratings of Class 300; Flanges of special design where the design pressure or temperature are not known; Forged fittings or valve parts which are over 4″ and Class 300.

The typical heat treatment conducted for A105 forgings includes annealing(A), normalizing(A), normalizing and tempering(NT), quenching and tempering(QT). Especially, normalizing at approximate 950°C for 2.5 hours is often required by many clients to eliminate possible internal stress in the forgings. These materials are usually marked as “ASTM A105N”.
