ASTM A 270 (Standard Specification for Seamless and Welded Austenitic Stainless Steel Sanitary Tubing)

This specification covers grades of seamless and welded austenitic stainless steel sanitary tubing having special surface finishes and intended for use in the dairy, pharmaceutical, and food industries. Tolerances are much tighter than those in ASTM A269 and ASTM A312, allowing a closer alignment of tube to tube, and tube to fittings, which is necessary for compatibility with automatic orbital welding. This specification covers tubes in sizes up to and including 6”.
