Title: ASTM A 312 -- Quality? Who bears the burden?

Abstract

Premature failure occurred in welded type 316L stainless steel pipe ordered to ASTM A 312. This specification can result in great variability in weld-seam quality, affecting corrosion resistance. ASTM A 312 does not sufficiently protect many end users. A clarifying statement should be inserted in this specification, and a new ASTM specification for pipe produced by automated welding mills with in-line induction coil heat treatment should be developed.
