This covers seamless stainless steel tubing for use in mechanical applications where corrosion-resistant or high-temperature strength is needed. The steel cast in ingots or may be strand cast. When steel of different grades is sequentially strand cast, identification of the resultant transition material is required. The tubes shall be made by a seamless process and by either cold working or hot working as specified. Seamless stainless steel tubing is a tubular product made without a welded seam. 
 
It is usually manufactured by 
hot working steel and then cold finishing the hot-worked tubing to produce the desired shape, dimensions and properties All austenitic tubes shall be furnished in the annealed condition. An analysis of each heat of steel shall be made to determine the percentages of the elements specified. If secondary melting processes are employed, the heat analysis shall be obtained from one remelted ingot or the product of one remelted ingot of each primary melt. 


Tubes shall be furnished in one of the following shapes, as specified by the purchaser: round, square, rectangular, or special. Optional supplementary requirements are provided and when desired, shall be stated in the order.

 
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the 
standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in square brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

 A For small diameter or thin wall tubing or both, where many drawing passes are required, a maximum of 0.040 % carbon is necessary in grades MT-304L and MT-316L. Small outside diameter tubes are defined as those under a 0.500 in. [12.7 mm] outside diameter and light-wall tubes as those under a 0.049 in. [1.2 mm] average wall thickness (0.044 in. [1.1 mm] min wall thickness).
 B The titanium content shall be not less than five times the carbon content and not more than 0.60 %.
 C The columbium plus tantalum content shall be not less than ten times the carbon content and not more than 1.00 %.
