|Publication Date:||1 January 1984|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel pipes):||23.040.10|
This specification 2 covers minimum wall-thickness, seamless cold-drawn low-car-bon steel tubes for tubular heat exchangers, condensers, and similar heat transfer apparatus. This specification covers tubes 1/8 to 3 in. (3.2 to 76.2 mm), inclusive, in outside diameter.
NOTE 1 Tubing smaller in outside diameter and having a thinner wall than indicated in this specification is available. Mechanical property requirement's do not apply to tubing smaller than 1/8 in. (3.2 mm) in outside diameter or with a wall thickness under 0.015 in. (0.38 mm)
The values stated in inch-pond units are to be regarded as the standard.
