Gas Tube

For over 30 years, gas companies in the U.S.A. and Europe have used copper for fuel gas piping.

Some advantages of using copper in fuel gas piping include:

  • Flexibility
  • Ease of bending
  • Compact sizing
  • Ease of joining
  • Resistance to corrosion

Plumbing and mechanical codes govern what types of products may be used for applications. Local codes should always be consulted for minimum requirements.

Our alloy C12200 seamless copper tubing is manufactured in the U.S.A. and is produced in compliance with the applicable chemical and mechanical properties of ASTM standards.
