    WK73665

    1. Scope

    This specification covers welded carbon steel tubes with a longitudinal seam that is free of filler metal and that is produced from sheet or strip up to 1.5 in. [38.1 mm], in diameters for use in surface condensers, evaporators, heat exchangers and general engineering applications.


    Keywords

    steel tube; condenser tube; textured heat transfer tube; feedwater heater tube; heat exchanger tube; evaporator tube; surface enhancement; temperature; service applications high; welded carbon steel tube; air conditioned tube; refrigeration tube;

    Rationale

    Industrial plants and Heating Vacuum and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems have a need for increased efficiency in heat transfer to lower production costs. Tubing with surface enhancement offers a significant increase in heat transfer and cost savings and needs to be included in a specification. This specification includes common carbon steel welded by ERW. Additional alloys are expected to be added as need develops.

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