    Revision of A962 / A962M - 19 Standard Specification for Common Requirements for Bolting Intended for Use at Any Temperature from Cryogenic to the Creep Range

    Work order pertains to testing requirements of A193 B7 studs that have been manufactured from threaded rod. A962 does not provide clear guidance for carburization/decarburization requirements in the common instance where A193 B7 studs are manufactured by cutting them from A193 B7 threaded rod. T-rod manufacturers arent testing for carb/decarb because A962 indicates threaded solid bars when defining bolting material. A962 only lists bolting components as having carb/decarb testing requirements. The issue arises that the manufacturers of the studs cant go back to the t-rod supplier and dispute a carb/decarb issue.
