    ASTM A1016 / A1016M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers a group of requirements that, unless otherwise specified in an individual specification, shall apply to the ASTM product specifications noted below.

    Title of SpecificationASTM Designation
    Seamless Carbon-Molybdenum Alloy-Steel Boiler and Superheater Tubes A 209/A 209M
    Seamless Ferritic and Austenitic Alloy-Steel Boiler, Superheater, and Heat-Exchanger TubesA 213/A 213M
    Welded Austenitic Steel Boiler, Superheater, Heat-Exchanger, and Condenser TubesA 249/A 249M
    Electric-Resistance-Welded Ferritic Alloy-Steel Boiler and Superheater TubesA 250/A 250M
    Seamless and Welded Ferritic and Martensitic Stainless Steel Tubing for General ServiceA 268/A 268M
    Seamless and Welded Austenitic Stainless Steel Tubing for General Service A 269
    Seamless and Welded Austenitic Stainless Steel Sanitary TubingA 270
    Seamless and Welded Carbon and Alloy-Steel Tubes for Low-Temperature Service A 334/A 334M
    Seamless and Electric-Welded Low-Alloy Steel TubesA 423/A 423M
    Welded Austenitic Stainless Steel Feedwater Heater TubesA 688/A 688M
    Austenitic Stainless Steel Tubing for Breeder Reactor Core Components A 771
    Seamless and Welded Ferritic/Austenitic Stainless Steel Tubing for General ServiceA 789/A 789M
    Welded Ferritic Stainless Steel Feedwater Heater TubesA 803/A 803M
    Austenitic and Ferritic Stainless Steel Duct Tubes for Breeder Reactor Core ComponentsA 826
    High-Frequency Induction Welded, Unannealed Austenitic Steel Condenser Tubes A 851
    These designations refer to the latest issue of the respective specifications.

    1.2 In the case of conflict between a requirement of a product specification and a requirement of this general requirements specification, the product specification shall prevail. In the case of conflict between a requirement of the product specification or a requirement of this general requirements specification and a more stringent requirement of the purchase order, the purchase order shall prevail.

    1.3 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each System must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the "M" designation (SI) of the product specification is specified in the order.
