1.1 This specification describes welded austenitic stainless steel tube on which the external and internal surface has been modified by a cold forming process to produce an intermittent corrugation for improved formability and resistance to seismic and other environmental distortions. The tubes are used for potable water service lines and other liquid delivery systems in end diameters from 0.5 in. to 2 in.. 1.2 The tube sizes and thicknesses usually furnished to this specification are .625 in. to 2.0 in. outside diameter and 0.030 to 0.049 in., inclusive, in wall thickness. 1.3 The grades of austenitic stainless steels included in this specification are UNS S30400/S30403 and S31600/S31603. Selection will depend upon design and service requirements.
