|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
|ICS Code (Non-ferrous metal pipes):||23.040.15|
This test method establishes the requirements for the expansion pin test for copper and copper-alloy pipe and tubing with an inside diameter of 0.125 in. (3.2 mm) and greater or an outside diameter up to and including 4 in. (102 mm).
NOTE 1 - For tubes of sizes with an inside diameter less than 0.125 in. (3.2 mm), a substitute test method must be agreed upon between the manufacturer and purchaser.
NOTE 2 - For tubes of sizes greater than 4 in. (102 mm) in outside diameter, a test method must be agreed upon between the manufacturer and purchaser. The flattening test, as described in the various pipe and tube specifications, is recommended as a substitute for the expansion pin test.
Units - The values stated in inch-pound units are regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information purposes only and are not considered standard.
