Mechanical Properties


The tables below give the maximum working pressure (MWP)
They have been calculated based on the requirements of EN378:2:008 using the stress values according to EN 14276.
Although straight tube is supplied in either half hard or fully hard condition, we have also quoted figures based on
annealed condition which is representative of the tube in the area immediately surrounding brazed joints.
The maximum test pressure can be 1.5 times that of the (MWP)
