Standard Specification for Hot-Rolled and Cold-Finished Zirconium and Zirconium Alloy Bars, Rod, and Wire for Nuclear Application
|Publication Date:||10 November 2001|
|ICS Code (Steel bars and rods):||77.140.60|
|ICS Code (Steel wire, wire ropes and link chains):||77.140.65|
1.1 This specification covers hot- and cold-finished zirconium and zirconium alloy bars, rod, and wire, other than those required for reforging, including rounds, squares, and shapes.
1.2 One unalloyed grade and three alloy grades for use in nuclear applications are described.
1.3 The products covered include the following sections and sizes:
|Rounds, squares and hexagons Flats||3/8 in. (9.5 mm) and over in diameter or size 1/ 4 to 10 in. (6.4 to 250 mm) incl in width and 1/8 in. (3.2 mm) and over in thickness
|Rounds in coils for subsequent reworking||1/4 to 3/4 in. (6.4 to 19 mm) in diameter|
|Wire||less than 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) in diameter or size|
AThickness 1/8 in. (3.2 mm) to under 3/16 in. (4.8 m) can be cold-rolled strip as well as bar.
1.4 Unless a single unit is used, for example corrosion mass gain in mg/dm2, the values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other. SI values cannot be mixed with inch-pound values.
1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portions of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
