PROCEDURE FOR MATERIAL PROCESSING AND QUALIFICATION


(WROUGHT AND CAST MATERIALS)
API 6A, PSL 1-4
HANGERS (CRA MATERIALS ONLY),
BODIES, BONNETS, END AND OUTLET CONNECTIONS, AND STEMS

1.0

GENERAL:
This document specifies the processing and qualification requirements for API 6A, product specification level (PSL)
1, 2, 3, and 4 materials for bodies, bonnets, and end and outlet connections, stems, and CRA (i.e., 410 SS, 718,
etc.) hangers. It must be used in conjunction with another Cameron material specification that gives the
requirements for a specific material. When referenced in another material specification, this specification must be
also be complied with.

2.0

MANUFACTURING PRACTICES:
2.1

Wrought Material
All material shall be of pressure vessel quality and shall have a wrought structure throughout. A fully wrought
structure is defined as one that:
1. is free from pipe and harmful segregation (the presence of which would indicate insufficient discard
from the starting ingot).
2. is free from burst, flakes, cracks, seams, laps, or other injurious defects detrimental to the end use of
the part.
3. is free from any open discontinuities (porosity, shrinkage, pipe, etc.) when macroetched or viewed
under a light microscope at 250X.
4. has a homogenous microstructure in any given area. Note: Some banding may be present in heavy
sections. This is normal and will not be cause for rejection unless it can be shown to be detrimental to
the end use of the part.
5. shows no evidence of macrosegregation (ingotism) that may be detrimental to the end use of the part.
6. in the case of carbon, low alloy, and martensitic stainless steels - has isotropic ductility properties within
any given area. Note that this does not require that ductility properties be uniform throughout the entire
cross section. These materials must be capable of meeting the following test unless otherwise agreed
upon with Cameron Metallurgy.
7. If Equivalent Round is 10 or below, then in any given area, the elongation and reduction in area values
of two tensile specimens taken adjacent to and 90 to each other shall satisfy the following:

Elongation (larger value)/Elongation/ (smaller value) < 1.20

Reduction in Area (larger value)/Reduction in Area (smaller value) < 1.20

8. If Equivalent Round is greater than 10, then in any given area, the elongation and reduction in area
values of two tensile specimens taken adjacent to and 90 to each other shall satisfy the following:

2.1.1

Elongation (larger value)/Elongation/ (smaller value) < 1.40

Reduction in Area (larger value)/Reduction in Area (smaller value) < 1.40

Hot Work Practice


Material shall be forged ("forged" here refers to any mechanical process that shapes metal at an
elevated temperature utilizing one or more dies, e.g. open/closed die forging, ring rolling, extrusion,
rolling, etc.) according to a written procedure specified by the forging supplier. The minimum
acceptable total hot work ratio from ingot to billet shall be 3 to 1 (except as noted). The total hot work
ratio for hot work practices is defined as the product of the hot work ratio for each hot working
operation, i.e. (hot work ratio of operation #1) X (hot work ratio of operation #2) X (...). The forging
reduction shall be the product of all forging sequences using the original ingot cross section as the
starting point and the final cross section of the billet prior to any closed die work.
Note:

The minimum acceptable hot work ratio is 3 to 1. Hot work shall be sufficient to guarantee a
fully wrought structure as defined above, but in no case less than 3 to 1. Just because a
forging has a hot work ratio exceeding the 3 to 1 minimum does not necessarily mean that
the forging is acceptable. It must have a fully wrought structure as defined in 2.1.

As an alternate to this 3 to 1 ratio requirement, the material supplier may propose other options for
Camerons consideration. If the proposal is acceptable to Cameron Metallurgy, the material supplier
shall perform tests to confirm that a wrought structure throughout is present. Test results shall be
submitted to Cameron Metallurgy for approval. Evaluation of these test results may be used to accept
processing of components forged with similar processes provided that the total hot work of the similar
components is greater than the component process previously evaluated.
Note:

2.1.2

Unless prohibited by the specific material specification, bar stock may be open die forged,
rolled, or extruded.

Micro-cleanliness of Steel Alloys


Forging supplier shall guarantee that production forgings are capable of meeting the following

2.3.4

Approved Heat Treatment Time at Temperature Monitoring Methods


There are many methods of monitoring time at temperature which will assure that the requirements of
the Cameron material specification are satisfied. The following methods are the recognized and
approved methods (for batch furnaces only). Any heat treatment certification which requires actual
time or charts shall reference the method utilized. The heat treater shall specify and use an approved
monitoring method. The cross-section of a part is defined as the diameter of the largest sphere that
can be wholly inscribed anywhere within that part.
Note: For PSL 4 body, bonnet, end and outlet connections, and hanger materials, only method C is
acceptable.
Method A - Furnace Temperature Monitoring
This method shall use a thermocouple which monitors the furnace atmosphere temperature. Holding
time shall start after the furnace atmospheric thermocouple reaches the set point temperature.
Holding times shall be as indicated below (see Note):
-

For parts up to and including 10" (25.4 cm) in cross section, hold for a minimum of 1/2 hour/per
inch of heaviest cross section for normalizing, austenitizing, or annealing operations; and a
minimum of 3/4 hour/inch of heaviest cross section for tempering and aging operations. If double
tempering is specified, the first temper cycle shall be for a minimum of 3/4 hour/inch of heaviest
cross section. The second temper for a minimum of 1/2 hour/inch of heaviest cross section.

For parts over 10" (25.4 cm) in cross section, hold for a minimum 1/2 hour/inch of heaviest cross
section for normalizing, austenitizing, or annealing operation; and a minimum of 1 hour/inch of
heaviest cross section for tempering and aging operations. If double tempering is specified, the
first temper shall be for a minimum of one hour/inch of heaviest cross section. The second
temper for a minimum of 1/2 hour/inch of heaviest cross section.

As an alternative for barstock up to and including 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter, holding times
at temperature may be selected by the material supplier that are appropriate for his specific heat
treat facilities, the alloy being heat treated, and the cross section of the part; and are consistent
with the required mechanical properties. Holding times, however, must be at least 15
minutes/inch of heaviest cross section for each operation. If this option is selected, material must
be qualified utilizing a full cross section prolongation that remains attached to a production part
throughout heat treatment. All required mechanical test specimens shall be taken with their
longitudinal axes at mid-radius or deeper and with the gage lengths of tensile specimens and the
root of the Charpy V-notch for impact specimens at least 1/4T (where T= heaviest cross section)
from the end of the prolongation.

Note: It should be noted that some vendors will report on their material test reports (MTRs)
something that is referred to as the time at temperature. This is considered to be the time at which
the entire cross-section of a part is at the specified heat treating cycle temperature (i.e. normalizing,
austenitizing, solution annealing, tempering, etc.). The time at temperature doesnt start until the
entire cross-section of the part has reached equilibrium (or, is at the same temperature). The actual
furnace times may be considerably longer to allow the parts to be heated up to the specified
temperature of the heat treat cycle. The time used shall be sufficient to allow for the complete
transformation of the material depending upon the specific alloy and heat treat cycle selected. It
should also be noted that the time at temperature given on an MTR for certain materials may be
less than the heat up and holding times calculated using the requirements above. However, as long
as the MTR reports a proper time at temperature statement and the material meets the mechanical
property requirements of the material specification, the material is considered to be acceptable. Any
questions in regards to this note should be directed to Cameron Metallurgy.
Method B - Contact Surface Thermocouple
This method shall use a thermocouple in surface contact with the product or a heat sink. The
equivalent round (ER) of the heat sink shall be determined per Figure 1. The ER of the heat sink
shall be greater than or equal to the largest ER of any part in the heat treatment load. The heat sink
shall be made of the same class of material when the components are made of an alloy of the
following classes: carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, titanium base alloys, nickel-copper alloys,
and nickel base alloys. For components which do not meet one of the preceding classes, the heat
sink shall be made from the same alloy as the component. Once the thermocouple reaches
temperature, the part(s) or heat sink shall be held at temperature for the time required by each cycle
stated in the Cameron material specification.
Method C - Heat Sink Thermocouple
This method shall use a thermocouple located such that the temperature sensing tip of the
thermocouple is imbedded within the part or heat sink and is no closer than one inch to any external
or internal surface. The equivalent round (ER) of the heat sink shall be the greater of:
1. The ER as determined using Figure; or,
2. The ER as determined using the thickest cross-section of the largest part.
As an alternative, the largest part in the heat treat load may be used as a heat sink. This option
requires that thermocouple location be specified by Cameron Product Engineering. The heat sink
shall be made of the same class of material when the components are made of an alloy of the
following classes: carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, titanium base alloys, nickel-copper alloys,
and nickel base alloys. For components which do not meet one of the preceding classes, the heat
sink shall be made from the same alloy as the component. The time at temperature required by the
Cameron material specification shall be initiated once the thermocouple comes to temperature.
Other methods of monitoring temperature during heat treatment may be used provided they are first
submitted to and approved by Cameron Metallurgy.
2.3.5

Double Tempering Operations


When a QTC is processed with a double temper operation, the product shall receive a double temper
operation and shall be processed in accordance with time and temperature tolerances specified in
section 3.3.4.2 for each cycle.

Optional Re-tempering
Carbon, low alloy, and martensitic stainless steel parts and QTCs that exceed the maximum
hardness in the applicable material specification after tempering must be re-tempered until the correct
hardness is obtained. Re-tempering shall be done in accordance with one of the following
paragraphs (as applicable).
2.3.6.1 QTC Too Hard - Single Temper Specified
When working to a material specification requiring a single temper and the hardness of the
QTC is too high after tempering, the QTC must be re-tempered. The QTC may be retempered by itself provided that the QTC tempering time at temperature does not exceed that
of the part(s) that it qualifies. Alternatively, the QTC and the part(s) it qualifies may both be
re-tempered. Re-tempering shall consist of one or more additional temper cycles performed
in accordance with the times and temperatures specified for the temper cycle in the material
specification. For PSL 2, 3, and 4, the times and temperatures for the re-temper cycles for the
QTC and part(s) must comply with section 3.3.4 if the QTC and part(s) are re-tempered
separately.
2.3.6.2 QTC Too Hard - Double Temper Specified
When working to a material specification requiring a double temper and the hardness of the
QTC is too high after tempering, the QTC must be re-tempered. The QTC may be retempered by itself provided that the QTC tempering time at temperature does not exceed that
of the part(s) that it qualifies. Alternatively, the QTC and the part(s) it qualifies may both be
re-tempered. Re-tempering shall consist of double tempering again in accordance with the
applicable material specification. For PSL 2, 3, and 4, the times and temperatures for the
double re-temper cycles for the QTC and part(s) must comply with section 3.3.4 if the QTC
and part(s) are re-tempered separately.
2.3.6.3 Part(s) Too Hard - Single Temper Specified
When working to a material specification requiring a single temper and the hardness of the
part(s) is too high after tempering and the hardness of the QTC is acceptable, then just the
part(s) need be re-tempered. Re-tempering shall consist of one or more additional temper
cycles performed in accordance with the times and temperatures specified for the temper
cycle in the applicable material specification. For PSL 2, 3, and 4, the times and
temperatures for the re-temper cycle(s) of the part(s) must comply with section 3.3.4.
2.3.6.4 Part(s) Too Hard - Double Temper Specified
When working to a material specification requiring a double temper and the hardness of the
part(s) is too high and the hardness of the QTC is acceptable, then just the part(s) need be
re-tempered. Re-tempering shall consist of double tempering again in accordance with the
applicable material specification. For PSL 2, 3, and 4, the times and temperatures for the
double re-temper cycle(s) of the part(s) must comply with section 3.3.4.

2.3.7

Continuous Furnace Heat Treatment


For PSL 1-3 applications, continuous furnace heat treatment shall be an acceptable alternative to
conventional batch type heat. Continuous furnaces typically contain several different temperature
zones through which the bar travels. The zone temperatures in the austenitizing furnace are chosen
so as to heat the part to a completely austenitic state in a relatively short time. The part is then spray
quenched before entering the tempering furnace. Zone temperatures in the tempering furnace are
chosen to produce the desired tempering effect, again in a relatively short time. The time spent in the
austenitizing and tempering furnaces depends primarily upon the length of the furnace and the travel
speed. The travel speed varies according to the size of the part. The time in each furnace shall be
sufficient to produce the desired mechanical properties and a microstructure equivalent to that
obtained by a conventional batch type quench and temper heat treatment.

corrosion resistance.

2.9

Scale Removal
During the production of any material where excessive surface scale (such as in heavily forged parts) is
produced through oxidization or any other process during either the forging or heat treatment operations, it
must be removed prior to delivery to Cameron. The scale can be removed through any recognized method
(for example air-blast, shot blasting, or grinding). However, it must in no way cause the material to deviate
from the requirements outlined in the Bill of Material or and other reference document.

QUALIFICATION TESTING:
3.1

General
The properties exhibited by the Qualification Test Coupon (QTC) shall represent the properties of the thermal
response of the material comprising the production parts it qualifies. Depending upon the hardenability of a
given material, the QTC results may not always correspond with the properties of the actual components at all
locations throughout their cross-section. A single QTC may be used to represent the impact and/or tensile
properties of the part(s) produced from the same heat provided it satisfies the requirements of this
specification.
For batch heat treatment only: When the QTC is a trepanned core or prolongation removed from a production
part or a sacrificial production part, the QTC may only qualify production parts having the same or smaller ER.
The QTC shall only qualify material and parts produced from the same heat.

produced from the same heat and heat treat lot.
3.2

Equivalent Round (ER)


3.2.1

Selection
The size of a QTC for a part shall be determined using the following equivalent round (ER) methods.

3.2.2

ER Methods
Figure 1 illustrates the basic models for determining the ER. The ER of a part shall be determined
using the actual dimensions of the part in the "as heat treated" condition. Figure 2 shows examples
of how prolongations are determined on several product configurations to meet the ER requirements.
The ER of a studded type part shall be determined by using T equal to the thickness of the thickest
flange that can be bolted to that part. ER determination of studded, non-studded or flange parts shall
be in accordance with Figure 1 methods for complex shaped parts.
When a prolongation is used, it shall remain integrally attached during all heat treatment operations
except post weld heat treatment, stress relief, and any re-tempering or re-aging that may be required.
For tubular components, bar stock, mill shapes and other raw material with a uniform cross section,
the prolongation shall have the same cross section as that raw material. For a production part with a
complex shape or varying cross section, the prolongation need not be an extension of the largest
cross section of the part. However, the extension shall meet or exceed the minimum equivalent
round (ER) required for a separate QTC.
3.2.3

Maximum ER QTC Size Requirement


The ER of the QTC, as determined using Figure 1, shall be equal or greater than maximum
ER of the part which it qualifies, except as follows:
3.2.3.1 For PSL 1 and 2
3.2.3.1.1 Forgings
Size required NOT to exceed 2-1/2 inches (63 mm) ER.

In no case shall the QTC be processed using a melting practice(s) cleaner than that of the material it
qualifies (e.g. a QTC made from a remelt grade or vacuum degassed material may not qualify
material from the same primary melt which has not experienced the identical melting practice). For
PSL 1, 2, and 3, remelt grade material removed from a single remelt ingot may be used to qualify
other remelt grade material which is from the same primary melt; no additional alloying shall be
performed on these individual remelt
