5.0 ASTM Tubing Specifications Outside Diameter/Wall Thickness


It is important to understand that both of the above can affect the ferrule(s) ability to seal on the tubing. It is recommended to order tubing manufactured to the plus (+) side of the outside diameter tolerance. Wall thickness variations can affect pressure ratings and flow characteristics.

The following tables should explain the allowable variations.
