ASTM A 1012-00 specifies requirements for for general applications.

Standard Specification for
Seamless and Welded Ferritic, Austenitic and Duplex Alloy
Steel Condenser and Heat Exchanger Tubes With Integral
Fins 1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation A 1012; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1. Scope
1.1 This specification describes seamless and welded fer-
ritic, austenitic and duplex alloy steel tubing on which the
external or internal surface, or both, has been modified by a
cold forming process to produce an integral enhanced surface
for improved heat transfer. The tubes are used in surface
condensers, evaporators, heat exchangers and similar heat
transfer apparatus in unfinned end diameters up to and includ-
ing 1 in. (25.4 mm). Boiler tubes are excluded.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded
as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for
information only.
1.3 The following precautionary statement pertains to the
test method portion only: Section 12 of this specification: This
standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns,
if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user
of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health
practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limita-
tions prior to use.
