    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: B05.04 | Committee B05 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK65628

    1. Scope

    This specification describes the production of welded copper and copper alloy tubes with a longitudinal seam free of filler metal produced from sheet or strip up to 1.5 in. [38.1 mm]in diameter for used in surface condensers, evaporators, heat exchangers and general engineering applications.


    Keywords

    textured;surface

    Rationale

    Industrial plants have a need for increased efficiency in heat transfer to lower production costs. Tubing with surface enhancement such as a texture offer a significant increse in heat transfer and cost savings and need to be included in a specification.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
