    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers aluminum-alloy (Note 1) drawn seamless round tube in straight lengths designated as shown in Table 2, 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 B210; for extruded tubes see Specification B221; for seamless pipe see Specification B241/B241M; and for structural pipe and tube see Specification B429.

    1.2 Alloy and temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those of Table 1 preceded by A9, for example, A91060 for aluminum 1060, in accordance with Practice E527.

    1.3 A complete metric companion to Specification B234 has been developed-B234M; 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.
