The copper tube specifications refer to ASTM B88 type K, used for water supply system. The datas include copper tube outside diameter, temper, wall thickness, and etc. of both imperial and metric units.

For plumbing copper tubing, people used to classify the tubes by wall thickness. There are type K, type L, type M and type DWV copper tubes. Type K tubes have thickest thickness than type M L tube.

The size of wall thickness effects copper tube's mechanical strength, working pressure. The thickest wall makes type K copper tubes the most durable & reliable type.

Normally tubes of this type are applied for underground watersupply system's main pipeline, hotwater pipline, sprinkler systems of commercial plumbing projects.

Winland's copper tubes are manufacturered with pure copper (C12200, 99.9% cu plus 0.015~0.040% p), outside diameter of the tubes are the same, it means they could use with same size copper fittings for soldering and connection.
