    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for seamless copper tube in coils, suitable for use in refrigeration and air conditioning or other uses, such as oil lines and gasoline lines.

    1.2 UnitsThe values stated in inch-pound units are standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units, which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 The tube shall be produced of the following coppers. Unless otherwise specified, tubes made from any one of these coppers may be supplied:

    The following safety hazards caveat pertains to the test method portion, Section 17, 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.
