Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy Drawn Tube and Pipe for General Purpose Applications (Withdrawn 2012)
|Publication Date:||10 April 2003|
|ICS Code (Non-ferrous metal pipes):||23.040.15|
1.1 This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy drawn tubes in straight lengths and coils for general purpose applications in the alloys (Note 0), and tempers shown in . Coiled tubes are generally available only as round tubes with a wall thickness not exceeding 0.083 in. [2.00 mm] and only in non-heat-treatable alloys.
Note 1-For drawn seamless tubes, see Specifications B 210 and B 210M, for tubes to be used in condensers and heat exchangers, Specifications B 234 and B 234M, and for seamless pipe, Specification B 241/B 241M.
Note 2-Throughout this specification use of the term alloyin the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1 and H35.1M. The equivalent Unified Number System alloy designations are those of preceded by A9, for example A91060 for aluminum 1060 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 units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.

This specification covers aluminum and aluminum-alloy drawn tube and pipe, of specified nominal composition and tempers, in straight lengths and tube in coils for general purpose applications. Coiled tubes are generally available only as round tubes with a prescribed wall thickness and only in non-heat-treatable alloys. The tube may be produced by drawing tube stock produced by extrusion through a bridge-type die or by die and mandrel methods. The ends of coils shall be crimped or otherwise sealed to avoid contamination during shipment. In addition to conformance with tensile requirements, coiled tube in the annealed temper only shall be capable of being expanded on a hardened ground tapered steel pin and shall be subject to inside cleanliness test.View Less
