Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Seamless Pipe and Seamless Extruded Tube
|Publication Date:||10 October 1999|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
1. Scope *
1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy seamless pipe in the alloys (Note 1) and tempers shown in Table 1 [Table 2] and extruded round seamless 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 B 210 or Specification B 483. For extruded tube see Specification B 221, and for structural pipe and tube see Specification B 429.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1 and H35.1M. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 5 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527.
1.3 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. The SI units are shown either in brackets or in separate tables. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems will result in nonconformance with this specification.
