Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Seamless Pipe and Seamless Extruded Tube
|Publication Date:||1 December 2010|
This specification2 covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy seamless pipe in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Table 1 [Table 2] and seamless extruded round tube in the alloys and tempers shown in Table 3 [Table 4] intended for pressure applications. The standard sizes for seamless pipe are listed in Table 16.7 of ANSI H35.2 and H35.2M. Nonstandard alloys, tempers, and sizes of pipe are produced as seamless extruded tube.
NOTE 1-Throughout this specification, use of the term alloy, in the general sense, includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
NOTE 2-For other seamless drawn tubes, see Specification B210 or Specification B483/B483M. For extruded tube see Specification B221, and for structural pipe and tube see Specification B429/B429M.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1M. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 5preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E527.
For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. 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 SI units are shown either in brackets or in separate tables.
2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SB-241/SB-241M in Section II of that Code.
