seamless copper tubes

Tubes like as wires are manufactured to standard sizes. Sizes and dimensions of pipes and tubes, and their fittings - inside and outside diameter, weight and more

Copper Tubes to BS (British Standard) 2871 - Dimensions and Working Pressures

Click on link below to see full Specification of other tables of standard:

ASTM B88, ASTM B88m, ASTM B280, BS EN standards, SWG.

The copper used in the manufacture of tubes is phosphorus deoxidized copper Cu-DHP defined by British Standard BS. 6017: 1981. This also corresponds to the ISO denomination Cu-DHP.

The minimum copper content is 99.85% and the residual phosphorus content is between 0.013 and 0.050%. This deoxidized copper is not affected by reducing atmospheres and consequently is well suited to welding and brazing. The density of copper is 8.9 g/cm3. its melting point is 1083 0C and its coefficient of linear expansion is 16.8 x 10-6 per 0C (between 20oC and 100oC).
