Body Valves - WCB and WCC

I now that the letters B and C at the final means the grade, C in greater than B. But, the other words WC whats the meaning?

I´ll appreciate the correct answer.

Re: What´s the meaning of WCB and WCC in body valves?

I'm not 100% sure..

But I believe its simply the grade of steel.. where the "W" signifies its weldable... and the "C" signifies its Castable... you already know that the A,B,and C at the end is the grade...

But again... its full of cobwebs.. and quite foggy in here...

The specification of material ASME SA 216 is for steel castings, carbon, suitable for fusion welding for high temp. service. And this material has 3 grades, WCA, WCB, and WCC, where each grade is considered a separate material characterized by its different chemical composition and different mechanical properties. Selection will depend upon design and service conditions, mechanical properties, and the high temperature characteristics. See detailed specifications here ASME_SA 216.
