    Abstract

    This specification applies to seamless copper tube for linesets intended for use in air conditioning units. The pressure rating established is 700 psi at 250 °F and incorporates fully annealed and brazed copper tubing.

    This specification establishes the requirements for materials and manufacturing process, chemical composition, temper, grain size, mechanical properties, performance (expansion test, cleanness of interior surface, microscopical examination for susceptibility to hydrogen embrittlement, pressure ratings), nondestructive testing requirements, workmanship, finish, and appearance. It also covers sampling, number of tests and retests, specimen preparation, test methods, inspection and certification, test report, product marking, and packaging and package marking.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for seamless copper tube for linesets intended for use in air conditioning units. The pressure rating established is 700 psi at 250 °F and incorporates fully annealed and brazed copper tubing.

    1.2 The tube shall be produced from the following copper alloy:
