SA179tubes.com produces round carbon and alloy electric resistance welded (ERW) mechanical tubing to ASTM specifications A513 Type 1A (hot rolled), Type 1B (pickled and oiled) and Type 2 (cold rolled). Produced in sizes ranging from 1.05″ OD up to 12.75″ OD and in nominal wall thicknesses beginning at 18-gauge (0.049″) and heavier, Valmont’s ASTM A513 tubing is used in a variety of industrial, agricultural and transportation-related end uses. For a complete listing of sizes produced, please visit our Steel Tubing Product Catalogue.
ASTM A513 Tubes Equivalent is DIN 17175 Grade 16Mo5, ASTM A513, ASME SA513 ASTM A513 specification covers electric-resistance-welded carbon steel tubing for use as mechanical and ornamental tubing. The ultimate tensile strength of ASTM A513 Tubes Material is calculated by dividing the area of the steel by the stress placed on it, which is expressed in terms of pounds or tons per square inch of material. Tensile strength is also an important measure of its ability to perform in an application.
ASTM A513 Tubes is a commercial and residential product which needs a tough and durable metal tubing structure that supports the ruggedness of its applications. ASTM A513 Tubes is highly durable which provides robust structural support for the heavy-duty metal products that are used every day. ASTM A513 Tubes are manufactured from low carbon steel. Which is typically available in hot rolled black and hot rolled. It is produced to closer dimensional tolerances than A500 and chemistries that allow for bending. It is used for furniture, machine components, storage racks, fences, etc.
ASTM A513 Tubes provide numerous advantageous qualities to a wide range of industries throughout the world. Some of the most distinct beneficial qualities of SA 513 Tubing are durability, work to tight tolerances and less costly. ASTM A513 Tubes Chemical Composition is iron with added carbon, phosphorus, manganese, silicon, and silver. ASTM A513 Tubes are used in a variety of agricultural, industrial, and transportation related end uses.
ASTM A513 Tubes is manufactured by using high quality carbon steel C1020 strip and it is formed and electric resistance welded into its basic shape. After annealing to produce a uniform grain structure all round, over a mandrel it is then cold drawn to give it these advantages: uniform concentricity around the central axis, denser surface, closer tolerances, uniform wall thickness, and higher physical properties.
Our steel tubes offer some of the industry’s best strength-to-weight ratios—which enables you to build cost-effective products that can endure the tough applications. Other advantages of Bull Moose steel tube:

ASTM A513 covers carbon steel grades starting at 1008 and higher in addition to specified alloy steels. Please visit our Finishes & Chemistries page for a listing of our standard chemistry capabilities.
Physical testing (yield, tensile and elongation) is not required under A513. If there is a specific strength requirement for your application, please be sure to include it at the time of inquiry as that will affect the chemistry required.
Flash control of the ID weld bead is discussed in section 12.3 to 12.3.4 of the specification. Valmont produces tubing to flash control 0.015″ maximum, 0.010″ maximum, 0.005″ maximum and flash in.
Valmont does not produce tubing to meet ASTM A513 Type 3, 4, 5 and 6. Depending upon actual tolerances requested; however, Valmont’s ability to produce tubing to tolerances tighter than A513 Type 1 and 2 allows us to explore options to replace ASTM A513 Type 5 DOM (drawn over mandrel) tubing. Please inquire with one of our knowledgeable salespeople if your needed tolerances lie between A513 Type 1 or 2 and A513 Type 5 so that we can explore alternatives to draw over mandrel.
ASTM A787 is a related mechanical tubing specification that covers metallic coated (galvanised, hot-dip galvanised, aluminized and galvannealed) carbon steel tubing. Please refer to the ASTM 787 page for more information.
An analysis of each heat of steel shall be made by the steel manufacturer 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. The heat analysis shall conform to the requirements specified, except that where the heat identity has not been maintained or where the analysis is not sufficiently complete to permit conformance to be determined, the chemical composition determined from a product analysis made by the tubular manufacturer shall conform to the requirements specified for heat analysis. When requested in the order or contract, a report of such analysis shall be furnished to the purchaser.
