ASTM B444 Standard Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum-Columbium Alloys (UNS N06625 and UNS N06852) and Nickel-Chromium-Molybdenum-Silicon Alloy (UNS N06219) Pipe and Tube
1.1 This specification 2 covers nickel-chromium-molybdenum-columbium alloys (UNS N06625 and UNSN06852) and nickel-chromium-molybdenum-silicon alloy(UNS N06219) 3 in the form of cold-worked seamless pipe and tube. The general requirements for pipe and tube are covered by Specification B829.
1.1.1 UNS N06625 products are furnished in two grades of different heat-treated conditions:
126.96.36.199 Grade 1 (annealed)—Material is normally employed in service temperatures up to 1100°F (593°C).
188.8.131.52 Grade 2 (solution annealed)—Material is normally employed in service temperatures above 1100°F (593°C) when resistance to creep and rupture is required.
N OTE 1—Hot-working or reannealing may change properties significantly, depending on working history and temperatures.
1.1.2 Alloys UNS N06219 and UNS N06852 are supplied in the solution annealed condition only.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

4.1.13 Supplementary Ordering Requirements: Grain Size Test (S1): Intergranular Corrosion Test (S2); Pitting and Crevice Corrosion Test (S3) may be ordered as an option by the purchaser in the purchase order indicating which tests are to be included.
5. Chemical Composition
5.1 The material shall conform to the composition limits specified in Table 2. One test is required for each lot as defined in Specification B829.
5.2 If a product (check) analysis is performed by the purchaser, the material shall conform to the product (check) analysis variations in Table 2 of Specification B829.
6. Mechanical Properties and Other Requirements
6.1 Tension Test—The material shall conform to the tensile properties specified in Table 1. The sampling and specimen preparation are as covered in Specification B829.
7. Dimensions and Permissible Variations
7.1 Permissible variations for material specified as small diameter and light-wall tube (converter size) shall conform to the permissible variations prescribed in Table X1.1 and Table X1.2.
8. Number of Tests
8.1 Chemical Analysis—One test per lot.

9. Test Methods
9.1 Hydrostatic Test—Each pipe or tube with an outside diameter 1 ⁄ 8in. (3 mm) and larger and with wall thickness of 0.015 in. (0.38 mm) and over shall be tested in accordance with Specification B829. The allowable fiber stress for material in the condition furnished, is as follows:
Grade 1—30 000 psi (207 MPa)
Grade 2—25 000 psi (172 MPa)
All—24 000 psi (165 MPa)
