    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for bright annealed seamless copper tube suitable for use in refrigeration, oil lines, gasoline lines, and so forth, where tube with an interior surface essentially free from scale and dirt is required.

    1.1.1 Tubes made from any of the following Copper UNS No. designations shall be supplied, unless otherwise specified in the contract or purchase order:

    Copper UNS No.Type of Copper
    C10200Oxygen-free without residual deoxidants
    C10300Oxygen-free, extra low phosphorus
    C10800Oxygen-free, low phosphorus
    C12000Phosphorus deoxidized, low residual phosphorus
    C12200Phosphorus deoxidized, high residual phosphorus

    1.2 Values stated in inch-pound units are the standard except for grain size, which is given in SI units.

    1.3 This specification is the companion to SI Specification B 68M; therefore, no SI equivalents are presented in this specification.

    1.4 The following hazard statement pertains only to the test method described in Sections 20.5 and 21.2.6 of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
