ASTM A860 is the standard specification for wrought high-strength ferritic steel butt-welding. The grade WHPY 42, 46, 52, 56, 60, 65, and 70 corresponds to the pipe standard of API 5L X42 to X70, used for oil and gas transmissions. ASTM A860 WPHY Pipe Fittings offer superior strength and durability for use in oil, gas, petrochemical, and nuclear applications. Unlike other fittings on the market today, these are capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and pressures up to 60 ksi (414MPa). With a high yield-strength ratio at a relatively low cost, this type of fitting is an excellent choice for professional engineers looking to improve their projects’ performance.
These fittings exceed the industry standards for the chemical composition of carbon steel. This ensures that they provide superior resistance against corrosion from rusting or oxidizing liquids such as water, oil, and air. The added reinforcement also makes them ideal for pipe systems subjected to higher-than-average pressures, making them an ideal choice for long-term, high-pressure applications. ASTM A860 WPHY Pipe Fittings are easy to install and require no special tools or fittings. They can be used with all standard pipe sizes and easily connect without any additional modification or welding required.
