This specification2 covers minimum-wall- thickness, seamless cold-drawn low-carbon steel tubes for tubular heat exchangers, condensers, and similar heat transfer apparatus.
This specification covers tubes 1/8 to 3 in. (3.2 to 76.2 mm), incl, in outside diameter.
NOTE I - Tubing smaller in outside diameter and having a thinner wall than indicated in this specification is available. Mechanical property requirements do not apply to tubing smaller than 1/8 in. in outside diameter or with a wall thickness under 0.015 in. (0.38 mm).
NOTE 2 - The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
