Standard Specification for Seamless Cold-Drawn Carbon Steel Tubing for Hydraulic System Service
|Publication Date:||1 March 2004|
|ICS Code (Piping and couplings):||23.100.40|
This specification covers nominal wall thickness, seamless, cold-drawn carbon steel tubing intended for use in hydraulic systems and in other similar applications where forming operations require tight radius bending and flaring.
Tubing sizes and thicknesses usually furnished to this specification are 1⁄8 to 31⁄2 in. [3.2 to 88.9 mm] in outside diameter and 0.035 to 0.134 in. [0.9 to 3.4 mm] inclusive, in nominal wall thickness. Tubing having other dimensions may be furnished, provided such tubing complies with all other requirements of this specification.
Mechanical property requirements do not apply to tubing smaller than 1⁄8 in. [3.2 mm] in inside diameter or 0.015 in. [0.4 mm] in thickness.
Optional supplementary requirements are provided and, when desired, shall be so stated in the order.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
