Working pressures of metric sized copper tubes according the BS (British Standard) 2871.
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/cm. its melting point is 3 1083 and its coefficient of linear expansion is oC 16.8 x 10 (ranging -6 per oC 20). oC - 100 oC
