Why is improved compliance important? Local technical expertise available to assist application – a phone call away. This simplifies technical specifications and preparations of drawings. Where this is not done the plate tested may not meet the requirements of the Standard.
AS/NZS – Standards Australia
Increased range of through-thickness testing options Allows specifiers to utilise a higher level Z35 of through-thickness testing than was available with the previous version of the Standard, for applications requiring welded joints with high restraint. The Australian Pressure Vessel Standard AS has undergone a major revision which has resulted in significant changes. Increases the range of service temperatures that can be specified Increases the minimum impact energy that be specified Designs for low temperature applications L20 and L40 can be done using Australian Standards.
This provision has been removed from the new Standard. Changes to the Standard simply reflect what has been best practice at BlueScope Steel for several years.
BlueScope can guarantee that Bzs manufactured steel made to the previous Standard, yet still within distribution supply chains, will comply with the new Standard. Allows specifiers to utilise a higher level Z35 of through-thickness testing than was available with the previous version of the Standard, for applications requiring welded bzs with high restraint.
Certificates dating back to are available online for uncoated steel. A fine-grained structure assists the material to retain strength and toughness after hot forming or normalizing.
What options and benefits does the change to the Standard offer specifiers in terms of design? Designs for low temperature applications L20 and L40 can be done using Australian Standards.
This includes correct compliance information being noted on both plate stencils and test certificates, and for further assurance, ACRS Certification. Caution should be exercised if specifiers and purchasers are being offered new product to AS The test certificate is an important reference document nxs reports on all elements relating to the applicable Australian Standard.
In the new 368 they are mandated for bzs. Increases the range of service temperatures that can be specified Increases the minimum impact energy that be specified.
For test results to be meaningful it is important that the laboratory understands the relevant standards on how to prepare test specimens and perform the tests. The changes to the Standard were designed nz deliver two major benefits to users: This provides greater confidence that the material will achieve the performance required in service. BlueScope Steel documents a full suite of critical properties that impact post processing activities such as welding and galvanizing.
Improved compliance to the Standard gives the specifier and purchaser confidence that the material obtained will perform as intended in the design and use phases of the project. Buyer Beware BlueScope can guarantee that BlueScope manufactured steel made to the previous Standard, yet still within distribution supply chains, will comply with the new Standard.
Changes to the AS/NZS Standard (Structural Steel) – BlueScope Steel
Mandating a wider range of requirements on test certificates Requiring test certificates to be written in English ensures the test certificate can be checked for compliance and that there is no confusion in interpreting the results. Options Benefit Increased range of impact testing options: Steel products comply with all aspects of the Standard – a BlueScope Steel product is always guaranteed to comply with the Standard to which it is manufactured.
Useful for when fabrication requires hot forming or the component is to be normalized.
Requiring the producing mill be listed on the test certificate allows you to assess the bona-fides of the material. Not all steel products are created equal, and the BlueScope brand is the best ass to ensure high quality and industry-compliant products. Increased range of impact testing options: Requiring test certificates to be written in English ensures the test certificate can be checked for compliance and that there is no confusion in interpreting the results.
Steels with higher toughness levels for more critical applications can be specified. When you specify BlueScope steel you can be confident that you get the quality you have specified, and not potentially non-compliant materials that put you at risk.
