Active Standard ASTM A513 / A513M | Developed by Subcommittee: A01.09
Book of Standards Volume: 01.01
Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers round, square, rectangular, and special shape electric-resistance-welded carbon and alloy steel mechanical tubing produced by hot- or cold-rolling. The types of tubing covered here are: Type 1a, as-welded from hot-rolled steel (with mill scale); Type 1b, as-welded from hot-rolled pickled and oiled steel (mill scale removed); Type 2, as-welded from cold-rolled steel; Type 3, sink-drawn hot-rolled steel; Type 4, sink-drawn cold-rolled steel; Type 5, drawn over a mandrel; and Type 6, special smooth inside diameter. Heat and product analyses shall be made to determine the percentages of chemical elements, to which the steel specimens shall conform to. Tubing shall be free of injurious defects and shall have a workmanlike finish. When specified, tubing shall be coated with a film of rust retarding oil before shipping.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers electric-resistance-welded carbon and alloy steel tubing for use as mechanical tubing.
1.2 This specification covers mechanical tubing made from hot- or cold-rolled steel.
1.3 This specification covers round, square, rectangular, and special shape tubing.
|Size Range |
|Electric-Resistance-Welded Tubing from Hot-Rolled Steel||outside diameter from 1/2 to 15 in.|
[10 to 380 mm]
| wall from 0.065 to 0.650 in.|
[1.65 to 16.50 mm]
|Electric-Resistance-Welded Tubing from Cold-Rolled Steel||outside diameter from 3/8to 12 in.|
[9.5 to 305 mm]
| wall from 0.022 to 0.134 in.|
[0.56 to 3.40 mm]
1.4 Optional supplementary requirements are provided and when desired, shall be so stated in the order.
1.5 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text the SI units are shown in brackets or parenthesis. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The inch-pound unts shall apply unless the “M” designation of this specification is specified in the order. In this specification hard or rationalized conversions apply to diameters, lengths and tensile properties. Soft conversion applies to other SI measurements.
