Revision of A179/A179M-19 Standard Specification for Seamless Cold-Drawn Low-Carbon Steel Heat-Exchanger and Condenser Tubes


Section 12.1 reads as follows "In addition to the marking prescribed in Specification A450/A450M, the marking shall include the name and order number of the purchaser." Generally, the information marked on tubular/pipe product relates to the manufacturer not the purchaser. Specification A179 is the only one of the forty-five in A01.09 with this requirement. The ballot item will change the marking requirements to be "as prescribed in ASTM A450".
