Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Drawn Seamless Tubes (Metric)
|Publication Date:||15 May 2012|
This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy 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 2.00 mm and only in non heat-treatable alloys.
Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1/H35.1M. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E527.
NOTE 1-See Specification B483/B483M for aluminum and aluminumalloy drawn tubes for general purpose applications, Specification B234M for aluminum-alloy 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.
This specification is the metric counterpart of Specification B210.
For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measure are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
