SCOPE 1.1 The material covered in this contract/purchase order will be used in a crucial shipboard system. The use of incorrect or defective material would create a high probability of failure resulting in serious personnel injury, loss of life, loss of vital shipboard systems, or loss of the ship itself. Therefore, the material has been designated as SPECIAL EMPHASIS material (Level I, Scope of Certification, or Quality Assured) and special control procedures are invoked to ensure receipt of correct material. 2. APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS 2.1 Order of Precedence - In the event of a conflict between the text of this contract/purchase order and the references and/or drawings cited herein, the text of this contract/purchase order must take precedence. Nothing in this contract/purchase order, however, must supersede applicable laws and regulations unless a specific exemption has been obtained. 2.2 Applicable Documents - The document(s) listed below form a part of this contract/purchase order including modifications or exclusions. 2.2.1 Documents, drawings, and publications supplied are listed under "Drawing Number". These items should be retained until an award is made. 2.2.2 "Document References" listed below must be obtained by the Contractor. Ordering information is included as an attachment to this contract/purchase order. 2.2.3 Specification Revisions - The specification revisions listed under "Documents References" below are the preferred revision. Older and/or newer r evisions are acceptable when listed within Contract Support Library Reference Number CSD155 in ECDS (Electric Contractor Data Submission) at: ht tps://register.nslc.navy.mil/. This is to allow Contractors to use certain acceptable older specification revisions to purge their existing stock of material certified to those older revisions or to use newer specification revisions when material is certified to newly released revisions,without requiring the submittal of waiver/deviation requests for each specification revision on every contract. Revisions of specifications reflecting editorial and/or re-approval (e.g. E2009, R2014, etc.) are considered inconsequential, but are acceptable when their revisions are listedwithin CSD155 or elsewhere within this contract.

Repairs to sealing surfaces and O-ring grooves with unacceptable defects may be accomplished within the limits of the size and tolerances provided in the applicable drawing. Repairs thatwould exceed these limits require approval (including final dimensions). The data that is red lined (crossed out) is excluded from the GAC for this contract and is not to be used for acceptance or rejection criteria. The GAC document is identified as Contract Support Library Reference Number CSD008 at https://register.nslc.navy.mil/ 3.6 Radiography is required on ;Body, item 4 and Tailpiece, item 8; . 3.7 Seat Stack Height Measurement - To ensure that each seat is within tolerance, check each seat singularly by measuring the seat height over the ball. This measurement is calculated by adding one-half ball diameter to the half stack height dimension on the drawing. Limits are determined by the ball diameter tolerance and the half stack height tolerance. Check dimensions by measuring from the seat back face to top of ball. Manufacturers of seats that do not have a ball of the required size available will be required to manufacture a dummy ball or segment of a ball with sufficient spherical surface to check the above dimension. 3.8 Ball Spherical Surface Finish - Spherical surfaces of valve balls must be finished as follows: Machine finish spherical surfaces of the valve ball to between 30 and 35 RHR; use lubricant. Grind, hone, or cup polish to 16 RHR maximum; use lubricant (light oil or soap solution). Grit blast with glass bead media (MIL-PRF-9954-MIL 10); use a 3/16 inch ID blasting nozzle (not supersonic type) 4 inches from ball at 75 PSI air pressure. The resulting surface finish should be less than 25 RHR.Perform final polish with SUPFINA Polishing Paste (Pink polishing paste, item code 10100244, Supfina Machine Company, North Kingstown, RI). Apply the SUPFINAPolishing Paste that is initially light pink in color over the entire surface of the ball with a brush and perform a low speed finishing process with both theball and a .250" thick wool pad (Style 22110, Aetna Felt Corporation, Allentown, PA^) turning at the same time with light pressure for approximately 30 seconds^^ (3 revolutions) of the entire surface of the ball. Once the light pink SUPFINA polishing paste that was applied to the surface of the ball turns a grey color, the final finishing process is complete. After the final finishingprocess is complete, the surface of the ball should have a matte dull appearance with a surface finish between RHR 12 and RHR 16. Clean ball with a warm, alkaline solution or a liquid nonionic detergent to remove SUPFINA polishing paste. ^ Reference customer number PLI00499 when ordering wool pad. ^^ CAUTION: Excessive time will cause the ball to be polished in violation of the process." 3.9 Ball Spherical Surface Waviness - Unless otherwise specified on drawing, all sealing area surfaces must have a spherical surface waviness which does not exceed 0.0005 inches of height per inch of spherical surface. Roughness and waviness ratings must apply in a direction which yields the maximum rating, normally perpendicular to the lay. 3.10 A visual inspection shall be performed on the finished seat with acceptance criteria on critical surfaces per CSD167 in the ECDS (Electronic Contractor Data Submission) system at: https://register.nslc.navy.mil/. 3.11 Specification Change - For QQ-N-281, Class B material: 1 - Footnote 9 to Table II of QQ-N-281 does not apply. 2 - When starting material is Round Bar greater than 3" dia, the mechanical properties of Hex Bar apply. 3.12 Slow Strain Rate Tensile Test Laboratories - The Slow Strain Rate Tensile Test of QQ-N-286 must be performed by one of the following laboratories: Huntington Alloys, a Special Metals Company Attn: Bill Bolenr 3200 Riverside Drive Huntington, WV 257059 Phone: (304) 526-5889 FAX: (304) 526-5973 Metallurgical Consultants, Inc.
