Standard Specification for Seamless and Electric-Welded Low-Alloy Steel Tubes
|Publication Date:||1 November 2009|
This specification2 covers minimum-wall-thickne
The tubing sizes and thicknesses usually furnished to this specification are ½ to 5 in. [12.7 to 127 mm] in outside diameter and 0.035 to 0.500 in. [0.9 to 12.7 mm] inclusive, in minimum wall thickness. Tubing having other dimensions may be furnished, provided such tubes comply with all other requirements of this specification.
Mechanical property requirements do not apply to tubing smaller than 1⁄4 in. [3.2 mm] in inside diameter or 0.015 in. [0.4 mm] in thickness.
An optional supplementary requirement is provided and, when desired, shall be so stated in the order.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the "M" designation of this specification is specified in the order.
*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
