Report Documenting Activity for Second Alloy 709 Commercial HeatHigh Temperature Materials R&D
SUMMARY Qualification of the advanced austenitic stainless steel material Alloy 709 for use in Section III Division 5 of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is being pursued by the US Department of Energy Advanced Reactor Technology Program. Qualification of this alloy will allow its use in design and construction of components for elevated temperature nuclear reactor systems. Code qualification requires extensive characterization of three commercial scale heats of the alloy. This report describes progress in procuring the second of three required heats of Alloy 709 plate from ATI Flat Rolled Products.
