|Publication Date:||10 May 2000|
|ICS Code (Aluminium products):||77.150.10|
1. Scope *
1.1 This specification covers aluminum-alloy (Note 1) drawn seamless round tube in straight lengths designated as shown in Table 1, for use in surface condensers, evaporators, and heat exchangers.
NOTE 1--Throughout this specification use of the term alloy in the general sense includes aluminum as well as aluminum alloy.
NOTE 2--For drawn seamless tubes used in general applications, see Specification B 210; for extruded tubes see Specification B 221; for seamless pipe see Specification B 241/B 241M; and for structural pipe and tube see Specification B 429.
1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 2 preceded by A9, for example, A91060 for aluminum 1060, in accordance with Practice E 527.
1.3 A complete metric companion to Specification B 234 has been developed--B 234M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
1.4 For acceptance criteria for inclusion of new aluminum and aluminum alloys in this specification, see Annex A2.
