Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Drawn Seamless Tubes
|Publication Date:||15 May 2012|
This specification2 covers aluminum and aluminumalloy drawn seamless tubes in straight lengths and coils for general purpose and pressure applications in alloys (Note 2), tempers, and thicknesses shown in Table 2. Coiled tubes are generally available only as round tubes with a wall thickness not exceeding 0.083 in. and only in nonheat-treatable alloys.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1(M). The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum designation 1100 in accordance with Practice E527.
NOTE 1-See Specification B483/B483M for aluminum-alloy drawn tubes for general purpose applications; Specification B234 for aluminumalloy drawn seamless tubes for condensers and heat exchangers; and Specification B241/B241M for aluminum-alloy seamless pipe and seamless extruded tube.
NOTE 2-Throughout this specification, use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
