New Specification for Seamless Copper-Iron Tube for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Field Service. testing

1. Scope

The formulation and standardization of specifications, the development of qualifications data and test methods, and the stimulation of research on copper refinery shapes, copper and copper alloy castings, and copper and copper alloy wrought products. The committee participates in joint activity with other committees on related matters of mutual interest.
Refinery shapes include cathodes, cakes, slabs, billets, wire rod and wire bars. Castings include ingots for remelting, deoxidizers, and hardeners for copper and copper-base alloys and sand, centrifugal, die, precision and continuous cast products. Wrought products include fabricated flat products (plate, bar, sheet, strip, foil, and flat wire), rod, wire shapes, forgings, pipe and tubular products, cartridge case and bullet jacket cups.

Keywords

Copper-Iron, High Pressure, K65, C19400, CO2. Testing

Rationale

This new specification is being developed to outline the requirements for copper-iron tube that has been recently introduced to the global market to meet the requirements for new, higher pressure refrigerant systems. Testing

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