Carbon Steel Heat Exchange and Hydraulic Tube
Heat Exchange and Condenser Tube
ASTM A179M ‘Standard Specification for Seamless Cold-Drawn Low-Carbon Steel Heat-Exchanger and Condenser Tubes’ covers minimum wall thickness tube for heat transfer applications in sizes 3.18mm to 76.2mm OD.
Hydraulic and Pneumatic Tube
The specification for heat exchanger tube is also used to specify seamless carbon steel tube intended for hydraulic applications. This hydraulic tubing is manufactured with average wall thickness specified; in all other respects the product conforms to the requirements of ASTM A179M and ASTM A450M.
In addition to the ASTM A179 tube stocked in heat exchanger and hydraulic variants, welded carbon steel tube can be obtained to either ASTM A178 or ASTM A214.
