    ASTM B919

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for welded, internally enhanced copper tube, in straight lengths or coils, suitable for use in refrigeration and air conditioning products or other heat exchangers.

    1.2 Units The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as 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 product shall be produced of the following coppers. Unless otherwise specified, tubes made from any one of these coppers may be supplied:

    Copper UNS No.Type of Metal
    C10200Oxygen-free without residual deoxidants
    C12200Phosphorized, high residual phosphorus (DHP)

    The following pertains to the test method described in 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 requirements prior to use.
