This specification covers seamless tubes of nickel and nickel alloy for use in condenser and heat-exchanger service. This covers outside diameter and average wall, or outside diameter and minimum wall tube. Tube shall be furnished in the alloys and conditions defined by this specification. The material shall conform to the composition limits of nickel, copper, molybdenum, iron, manganese, carbon, silicon, chromium, aluminium, titanium, phosphorus, cerium, zirconium, yttrium, born, cobalt, columblum, tungsten, and nitrogen specified. Tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and Rockwell hardness of the material shall conform to the required mechanical properties set by this specification. Test methods such as chemical analysis, tension, rounding procedure, Rockwell hardness, grain size and hardness conversion shall be performed.
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.
