|152.4 < O/D ≤ 203.2µm||± 0.76 µm|
Difference between maximum and minimum diameters at any one cross section to be within max & min sizes as above.
Thickness tolerance :
to ±0.10mm (AS 1528:1)
Weld Bead :
Weld bead of tube without cold work controlled to 110% of wall thickness
Maximum of 1.0 mm / metre
Length tolerance :
Standard length 6 metres -0 /+35 mm Cut to exact length jobs, by agreement (+/- 1 mm)
End finish :
Sizes to 203.2 deburred both ends
Finish internal :
Tubes with diameter greater than or equal to 31.8 mm are internally cold worked (Internal weld beaded to tube surface). Tubes with diameter less than 31.8 mm are in as welded condition and internal weld height is controlled to a minimum height.
Finish external :
Available as follows:
As welded condition (external weld bead removed).
May have forming, straightening & weld polish cross hatch marking.
Standard Polished equivalent to 320 Grit - typical Ra = 0.5µm to 0.8 µm
Minor form marks may be visible. .
Documentation & Packaging
Polished Tube is individually plastic sleeved in a bundle with steel strapped cleats and plywood for forklift plate.
Controlled batch traceability from raw material to finished tube. For traceability purpose the tube is either inkjet marked or attached with label identifying sizes , batch & trace numbers.
Test certificate :
Raw material test certificates are available on request. Certificate of Test of Finished Tube is provided for the tube dispatched under ASTM A249/ A269.
