    Revision of A106 / A106M - 14 Standard Specification for Seamless Carbon Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A106 / A106M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.09 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK46360

    1. Rationale

    A voter on WK39407 objected to the length overlap of single and double random length pipe. As WK39407 was only to clarify what the size limits are, and not to change them, that objection was found Not Related. As required by procedures, this new item was opened to address the removal of the overlap. The reason for this proposal is that the existence of the overlap is confusing to some users. However, it should be noted that the overlap has existed for some time and that it provides an opportunity for producers to make efficient use of product in stock and besides, it is nearly an oxymoron to try to place precise length limits on random length pipes.
