Standard Specification for Copper-Brazed Steel Tubing
|Publication Date:||1 November 2012|
|ICS Code (Non-ferrous metal pipes):||23.040.15|
This specification covers double-wall, copper-brazed steel tubing suitable for general engineering uses, particularly in the automotive, refrigeration, and stove industries for fuel lines, brake lines, oil lines, heating and cooling units, and the like. The tubing is available in either of two types, single strip or double strip as shown in Fig. 1.
Units-This specification is expressed in both inchpounds units and in SI units; however, unless the purchase order or contract specifies the applicable M specification designation (SI units), the inch-pound units shall apply. The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI 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. In this specification hard or rationalized conversions apply to diameters, lengths, and tensile properties. Soft conversion applies to other SI measurements.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
