1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for hard-drawn, seamless capillary tube made from Copper Alloy UNS Nos. C10800, C12000, or C12200.
1.2 This tube is commonly supplied in straight lengths intended for restrictor applications such as metering lines for liquids and gases where close control over smoothness and diameter of the bore is required to insure uniform flow characteristics between tubes.
1.3 The values stated in inch pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4 The following safety hazard caveat pertains only to the test method described in section 16.4 (Cleanness Test) of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
